This is a documentary on bad parenting as much as it is about concussions in sports. The doctor whose boy plays hockey and has a brain injury yet is allowed to keep playing because "he loves to play hockey and we love watching him play hockey" should be stripped of her medical license. She is an accomplice to the permanent harm being brought upon her son by sports. And she knows the damage to his brain is not reversible and will shorten his life. Shameful.
Should be required viewing by all parents considering putting their children in sports. This is a fascinating film. I hope more research is done based on this information so better decisions can be made on and off the field.
Very interesting topic. It's insane what parents will do with their children.
