    ...Darren Sharper, the Vikings' 11-year safety, likes the idea of having a concussion summit. "Maybe we can get more information to determine what really happens after you get a couple of these things," he said. "If it's bad, then they should shut guys down and not let them play any more. Guys will want to put themselves at risk because they don't know any better. The league and the union needs to protect guys from themselves."...

    Can a team force a player to retire if they don't like the reults of the test?

    Brent Boyd has no memory of what otherwise would have been a meaningless play during a 1980 NFL preseason contest in Miami. The former Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman just remembers waking up and feeling an overwhelming sense of panic
    FYI, a thread about former Vikings player Brent Boyd's fight is here;
