A group of former professional football and hockey players say there is a desperate need for a national standard to diagnose and treat concussions in sports. Former National Hockey League player Eric Lindros says one blanket protocol would be the best way to simplify and standardize the approach to concussions. He says there are going to be varying opinions because it's medicine -- but for the most part, everyone can agree on what should be done and how to go about it. (The message to those at the concussion conference in Ottawa is a call for social changes to help coaches better identify concussions and push athletes to take head injuries more seriously.)
