It's been a head-spinning kind of week, excuse the pun.

Over the weekend I published a series of articles focusing on the latest research and arguments about chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

There was some strong, predictable reaction, most, if I'd be so bold to suggest, coming from people who hadn't read the piece.
