Many people may remember the 1980's documentary Disposable Heroes: The Other Side of Pro Football where they profiled former Oakland Raider center Jim Otto where he had so many injuries & operations that he had to had his leg amputated. I remember watching it and it hit me like a cup of ice cold water back then; maybe ESPN Classic or HBO (which aired the doc) could re-air it and show it to all 32 NFL teams in the wake of all of the concussions going on these days.
