Mike Webster's Disease

Pittsburgh Steeler center Mike Webster was a shell of himself when he retired. Webster died homeless. Webster's brain was examined. They talk about a condition called CTE, which the doctor wants to call "Mike Webster's Disease."

This disease is caused by numerous concussions. Here is another example.

Everyone knows about Chris Benoit and that fiasco but most people chalk it up to Roid Rage even though the facts all point elsewhere and with the incident happening over a three day period it does not fit the definition of Roid Rage. The medical examination post mortum revealed Benoit had CTE. Dr. Bailes said Webster's and Benoit's brains were similarly damaged.

Michael Benoit said the research gave him a good understanding of what happened to his son. He still gets emotional hearing that his son's brain was heavily damaged. He said he thought that is why Chris suffered from insomnia, mood swings, and drank heavily right before the tragedy happened. He said Chris was going downhill. He said Chris had become an extremely religious person who could quote Bible Scriptures and that is not how Chris was. Dr. Bailes said in some cases a person with this sort of brain damage can develop a religiosity and he thinks it is very likely the case with Chris Benoit.

For anyone that has had concussions this is scary as hell.

Yea, everyone knows that Vince doesn't care about the health of the wrestlers but the NFL should. The NFL has to take measures to keep that from happening to anyone else.

This. I'm surprised no doctor told him he could hurt himself by doing that once a match.

He's done it off the tops of cages and missed. That is hard plywood they fall on. Every time he missed that was a concussion right there because the more you have the easier it is to get another. Westbrook needs to stop now, one hard hit can lead to another concussion and then you turn into Webster/Benoit.
