The league needs to begin talking to retirees of today and yesteryear. Many players from days gone by retired from the game with no financial security and in many cases poverty, yet picked up their lives and kept going. With no counseling services, with no medical understanding of depression.

Yet today we have 3 guys that end their lives over a period of a few months. It needs to be studied.
It would be logical to draw such conclusions. We know as a fact that concussions can lead to depression and damage in the frontal area of the brain with permament executive function impairment.

What I really don't get is that people are saying : "we should investigate first" about something that's already investigated.
