We're going to open a can of worms with this one. With the recent tragic death of former NFL linebacker, Junior Seau, the spotlight is shining bright on the NFL once again to do more to prevent concussions and ensure player safety.

Though the NFL has admirably set aside a chunk of money in the new CBA for research, there are still complaints. Should the league be doing more? If you've listened to Cris Carter on ESPN recently, you'd have heard him say that it isn't the league's responsibility to deal with these certain issues long after a player is retired from football. Do you agree?

Lastly, people are wondering about the future of the league. With parents becoming more and more concerned about having their children enter youth football, will the game suffer? Or is there to much money to be had and the athletes will always flock to the sport?
