via- bleacherreport.com According to Johnny Dodd of People, Omalu is confident the 68-year-old former NFL star—who is currently serving nine to 33 years in prison for a 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery conviction—has been impacted by CTE: “I would bet my medical license that he has CTE. Given his profile, I think it’s not an irresponsible conclusion to suspect he has CTE.”
Wait, so you’re telling me the guy who murdered his wife, got away with it, and then wrote a book titled “If I Did It” probably has CTE? Shocker! Take a look at my surprised face.
Oh and let us not forget that he currently sits in prison for robbing a sports memorabilia store in a hotel casino at gunpoint. Not quite sure what sparked this whole discussion with Dr. Bennet Omalu in the first place, but yesterday was actually the date that OJ was selected number one in the 1969 AFL-NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills. Shame how all the off the field issues make people forget how great a player OJ really was. It’s not like he did anything THAT bad (Jk).
P.S. I know nothing about CTE besides what I learned from the movie Concussion, which was very mediocre. I couldn’t agree more that people of color are misrepresented at The Academy Awards.This year Idris Elba for Beasts of No Nation, Michael B. Jordan for Creed, and the entire cast from Straight Outta Compton all deserve to be nominated, as well as many others. But don’t come at me with Will Smith’s shitty performance in Concussion. His accent was pathetic and his decision to boycott seems more personal rather than for the greater good. Oh, and Luke “The Godfather” Wilson as Roger Goodell? Give me a break.
