Junior Seauís Family Sues N.F.L.

Does anyone seriously believe that Seau would have quit playing football knowing that he might suffer some long-term physical damage due to the inherent brutality of the sport?

No but they know they can make safer helmets. They refuse to because they look weird. To my mind there is room for some fault there under those circumstance. Rather, I'd put it to the players to vote. IIRC there is good evidence that the pads and helmets actually increase the chance of injury. Rugby does not have these sorts of problems and they don't wear pads.
