via Bob Costas says reality is football ‘destroys people’s brains’ – AOL News

Longtime NBC Sports broadcaster Bob Costas put it bluntly Tuesday night: The reality is football “destroys people’s brains.”

While speaking on a panel at the University of Maryland along with other sports journalists and personalities, Costas reportedly called the game’s decline the most significant story in American sports.

“The cracks in the foundation are there,” Costas said, according to USA TODAY Sports. “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.”
