I dread the day one of my favorite NFL players, Troy Polamolu indicates he has long-term brain damage but it is coming.
That's not from just fighting, though. That's all aspects of the physical game. A clean hit could knock a guy out, giving the guy long-term disadvantages. While fighting doesn't help the cause, it's far from the only factor. As long as there is the ability to get stronger and faster, this situation won't improve in a physical sport.
