Tony_Dorsett [1]Despite the fact that no one really knows what it means to have CTE, the effort — intentional or not — to create mass hysteria regarding the consequences of a potential CTE diagnosis is working.

According to ESPN’s Outside The Lines, more former football players want to be tested for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in the wake of recent news that the condition has been discovered in multiple former NFL players, including Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett.

The article states that researchers from UCLA and a company known as TauMark, which has developed a brain scan that supposedly spots CTE in living persons, have been “inundated” with inquiries.
