John Kordic was the last heavyweight to die a tragic death during his playing career. If fighting was to blame, what about the hundreds of enforcers since the 1920's? Shouldn't more besides Kordic be dead?
To add to that, look at a guy like Grimson who was a top heavy for years and what does he do after his playing days? Goes to law school and becomes a lawyer.
