This is a very important documentary for anyone who is in a sporting activity, has kids in sports or who is in healthcare in general to watch.

Thie documentary was fascinating. It raises so many questions that as a health care professional, sports fan, & parent that I would have never pondered otherwise. It it informative and damning, yet it doesn't seek to end sports or convince us NOT to let our children play sports. It just seeks to educate.

Very interesting and informative. I showed it to a group of athletes and had a great discussion afterwards.
Two days later the Belcher incident happened!

The phenomena of sustaining a brain injury in sports is well documented; as well as the deterioration of the brain and development of traumatic brain encephalopathy post multiple brain injuries over time. Highly recommend.

I found the content to be informative without being too medically technical. I particularly liked the direct player and family segments. I'm glad Chris has continued to push against the opposition.

Everyone with a son and their son(s) should see this movie. They will never play contact football again, and rightfully so!

The film is an exceptionally well written and structured, giving a clear and precise representation of the institutional neglect of head injuries in all sports and football in particular. While it offers some hope given the mild contrition of the NFL and exceptional efforts of campaigners and scientists, the calculated arrogance of the NHL is an unwelcome source of disgust. Unfortunately, history has shown that real changed is often only implemented after an event so appalling that even the entrenched vested interests can no longer justify the realty (young athletes on steroids, pushy-demanding parents, advertisers, owners, coaches and league officials).

My Granddaughter had 3 concussions when she was in competition cheerleading, she wanted to participate again but decided against it after watching Head Games. This a must see for any athletic department and should be used as a training tool when parents meet to approve student participation in sports. It doesn't promote cutting sports but does promote an awareness of symptoms, care and long term consequences.
