    This does not overshadow this tragedy, does not lessen the issue of domestic violence, does not mitigate anything.

    That said, football is causing traumatic brain injury in thousands of players. It is depressing to contemplate how increasingly poor kids are being used by the college machine, then left to suffer the consequences.

    Again, this in no way diminishes the tragedy here, but this is a major problem.
