Football and the ancient Roman gladiator games

Excerpt of an interview on the HBO show Real Sports, January 2019:

Interviewer: “You go to a Princeton college football game and everyone is cheering in the stands. But almost all the [affluent] people we spoke to aren’t going to let their kids play football [due to the risk of brain injury].”

Boston University doctor brain concussion/CTE expert: “That does become a gladiator type situation. Go hurt yourself for my entertainment.”
