  1. I’m of two minds about this comic. It’s funny on one level. But CTE is a serious problem. It has led to permanent brain damage and even death. I can see how this young man would be torn about math assignments. But telling him about the lethal nature of his chosen profession might be the incentive he needs.

    Then again, it’s just a comic strip. So, funny, I guess.

  2. I don’t seem to completely understand the joke.
    Is it just that the guy can’t escape math? Am I missing something about football culture or medical reality in the US?
    Can someone enlighten me please?

    1. He can’t escape math is the main joke. It also parodies how American parents might allow their kids to do poorly in school on the hopes that they make it big with a sport, often football.
