    Default SI: Troy Polamalu Admits To Lying About Concussions To Get Back In A Game

    Wow. Skin or not, this guy is pretty tough.

    Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu revealed on Wednesday’s Dan Patrick Show that he has lied about sustaining concussions as an NFL player to get back into a game, and said playing a “tough man’s game” is what makes it so popular.

    He estimates having suffered eight or nine concussions throughout his career, and he expects the number will be higher by the time he retires. If players count every little “buzz” as a concussion, he said, the number would more likely be 50 to 100.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that we'll be watching flag football five years from now?

    Tough is one way to describe it.

    Stupid is another.

    These guys are screwing with their brain, and causing it to deteriorate decades before it should.

    And then players want to sue the NFL over the issue...
