USA Today reports that sportscaster Bob Costas spoke at a sports roundtable last night and declared that football "destroys people's brain" and said that the game could collapse "once people actually begin connecting the dots" between new medical research and hits to the head.
"The cracks in the foundation are there," Costas said. "The day-to-day issues, as serious as they may be, they may come and go. But you cannot change the nature of the game. I certainly would not let, if I had an athletically gifted 12- or 13-year-old son, I would not let him play football."
