Troy Polamalu recently admitted that he has lied about concussion symptoms.  This is exactly why these concussion lawsuits are garbage.  Players will do whatever it takes to get on the football field.

Troy Polamalu made some interesting statements about concussions.  The 7-time Pro Bowler said on Dan Patrick's radio show that he believes that he has suffered eight or nine recorded concussions.  Polamalu also said, "When you get your bell rung they consider that a concussion.  If you consider that a concussion, I'd say any football player at least records 50 to 100 concussions a year."

I've said numerous times on the critically acclaimed "Noe Show" that these concussion lawsuits are garbage.  Players in the 60s and 70s would've done the exact same thing that Troy Polamalu does; they would've found a way to get on the field in spite of the long-term health risks due to concussions.  Right or wrong?  Freakin true.
