Reviews about Head Games (2012)
This was a wonderfully informative documentary. The information is important for parents, athletes, coaches, and medical professionals alike.
Great video. I show it to my Health class and the students really enjoy it.
This was stunning to watch. Anyone who has a kid in sports needs to know what is in this video.
One of the best and most honest looks at the consequences of children participating in sports at a higher level, when they are far too young. The win at all cost mentality is astounding and the coach/parental attitude that when a child is injured, they should "shake it off" and get back in as fast as possible borders on abuse. In this film, I think that what was most astonishing to me was the female physician at the end, who works with concussion victims and whose son has had numerous concussions playing hockey--and yet, she "can't seem to let him give it up". Amazing. I say this, by the way, from the perspective of having a son who sustained a serious concussion playing high school lacrosse, a sport he had played for many years, at which he exceled and loved---and who decided that he would bow out because we, and he, did not know what might happen if he ever had another (he missed 3 months of school and has taken more than two years to regain his capabilities and his personality). Every parent who pushes their child to play adult sports at a level inappropriate for children should be required to watch this film.
Every athlete should watch... very informative and eye opening. I enjoyed it very much. I am glad to see CTE getting the attention it deserves.
I have two grandsons and a granddaughter who all love to play "head games" and it is becoming harder and harder to overlook the longterm problems associated with concussions and concussive effects, especially on children. These issues are eventually going to have a major impact on these games and how our future sports environment looks in the future.
Excellent presentation of a present-day situation which needs to be looked at very closely. Have young folks watch to make them aware!
