One of the interesting things I have discovered, in the process of writing a book about concussions and youth sports, is that everybody has some type of opinion/conspiracy theory to share.
They fall along similar lines: Concussions are killing people – or they really don’t exist…just another media hype example. I am not yet meeting a lot of the in-between crowd, the concussions should be taken seriously, but not to the point of paralyzing fear.
It’s funny, because I cannot get a read – yet – on who is going to hit me with which theory. I used to think to think it was the moms who would be on #teamscary, while the dads would pick #teamdenial. I am really fascinated by both sides, because their positions can be equally radical – and equally wrong. But I love they share what they think, as it better informs me about what we need to discuss and illustrate.
I can’t wait to get the book out, so we can really start a good discussion with both sides. I am going to be really interested in that!
