I wonder if Andre Waters would have laughed?

This is in very poor taste (from ESPN yesterday):

Head trauma is not all that funny, and the NFL and NFLPA's complicity in this is shameful. Were we discussing any other big business, this would be major news and cause a huge public outcry. But because it's sports, we keep lining our children up for head trauma and pretending that the depression, suicide, and loss of faculty that afflicts football players is okay.

But so long as the bread and circuses flow, I guess ESPN is happy.
