I feel for Kevin Everett. I really do. But let's get real. The guy got injured because he didn't apply what he learned; he lowered his head when he made a tackle. He got injured playing a sport he chose to play. And, he was getting paid well to play that sport. And there is an inherent risk in playing this sport, even if the incidence of injury is small.
Why is the media making such a big deal out of it, and not focusing on things that *actually* matter?
C'mon and get real. There are more important issues than whether he might walk again or not.
