I've been critical of Pop Warner Football for its sluggish response to the sports concussion controversy. So only fair to note that last week the kids' league took a positive step, announcing the forming of a "Pop Warner Medical Advisory Board."
The board - composed of four physicians - will advise Pop Warner officials on a range of health matters, not just concussions.
First question for the panel: Is tackle football safe for five-year-olds?
