Chris Kluwe, Former NFL Punter, Compares The NFL To Big Tobacco
In an exclusive interview with uSports, former NFL punter Chris Kluwe talked about the comparison between the NFL and the tobacco industry.
“Yeah, it’s similar in that you make a lot of money off someone else’s suffering. In the case of the NFL, it’s probably not as deadly in terms of tobacco, simply because there’s less people participating than there is smoking cigarettes, but, at the same time, if you did have that information and you kept it from people well that’s that… I would think that that would be a crime in most civilized societies. If you knew someone was getting brain trauma from the acts you were having them perform, well then you probably owe it to them to at least make them aware of that fact, so then they can make an informed choice.”
