A lot of football players die young. Not trying to be morbid but that is a point. Coaches make their guys run out there with concussions and "tough it out"

Another thing: Hockey is played at a much faster speed than football.
1. Skating is faster
2. Ice and boards are harder surfaces than grass
3. Football helmets are much better suited for head-on-head impact
