Show me any aging person who was involved in even amateur athletic pursuits, or physical work of any type during their life that isn't bothered by an ailment related to that activity. Not denying football takes a toll on the body but doesn't everything. I have guitar playing related carpal tunnel, surfing related shoulder, back and ear issues. This can hardly be a surprise, how much examining did it take.?
