8:03 am
on monday, he announced his retirement from the san francisco 49ers over concerns about the long-term effects of head trauma. he's just 24 years old but says the risk of playing are not worth the rewards. chris borland joins to us discuss his decision in his first live television interview since his decision. welcome. thank you for coming here. >> thank you for having me. absolutely. >> walk us through how you came to make this decision. >> i'd always been aware of the dangers or i thought i was. in fall camp last year sustained a hit and it was nothing out of the ordinary for a linebacker physical play, just thought to myself after that is this the route i want to go? how many times am i going to do this? for how long? and what are the real consequences? it triggered a change in thought for me. subsequently i did a lot of research and ultimately came to the conclusion that no it wasn't worth it for me personally. >> that one hit. was it a concussion? >> you know, i thought so. there's a lot of vernacular in
8:04 am
football about getting your bell rung, getting dinged. it was one those instances. the hit itself wasn't cataclysmic, it just changed the way i approached the game. >> you realize if you continue to play the game you might suffer permanent brain damage. that was your conclusion. >> that was my conclusion. people talk about knowing the risks going in. i think guys understand, of course, it's not good for you but i don't think even the top neurologists truly understand the risks and the connections. that's what i found in my research. it's too much unknown for me and there's been too many tragedies for me to be comfortable playing. >> there must have been people who said to you, you're crazy, you're giving up so much money, fame, such a career. >> yes. and i am. i understand that. maybe they're right. i could be wrong. i hope i am. however, that's a difficult conversation to have with families who have lost loved ones about how important it is to make a lot of money playing
8:05 am
football. >> did you think your decision would attract this much attention? >> i didn't honestly. >> what did you think? >> i didn't know what to think. last week i spoke about a neurologist. i said is this a lightning rod issue, is this going to gain a lot of attention? he said no you'll be at the bottom of the ticker on espn one day. obviously it's gone further than that. which was not my intent. i'm not particularly interested in having in-depth conversation about it. the spotlight has been enough. it's important to talk about the information that's available. >> you're saying chris, you don't want to be the poster boy. you don't want to raise a banner about this issue. the nfl is saying listen football today is safer than it's ever been. you can get more injuries falling off of a bicycle. >> yes. and i don't. but the dangers are inherent to the game. you can ride a bicycle and the act of riding a bicycle isn't causing brain trauma.
8:06 am
you could fall. everything can go right in football and it's still dangerous. which isn't an indictment of the game. if you love it and you think it's worth it you should play. the important factor is that it's an informed individual choice. >> you've heard from teammates what have they said? >> it was difficult. i think they wish i was playing, some of them. they understand where i'm coming from. they know the type of guy, it's well researched. i'm passionate about that. i have their support, guys i've played with, looked up to who have played before me. the most meaningful thing has been former players who have struggled and reached out. >> can football change so the concerns you have will be met? >> that's a big topic. i don't know if i can tackle that. but i think there's a lot of things that can change. i think waiting is a good idea. brevity might be a good idea, just playing a smaller amount of time. no i think the game's
8:07 am
inherently dangerous, which isn't all bad. we don't need to be overly cautious but we should be smart. >> you made this decision before the season started. were you worried about how and when you would tell your team? >> yes. it was important to me. i think the 49ers drafted me assuming i wanted to play more than one year. at the time i did, too. things changed and they didn't deserve to be undercut. i didn't want that to happen. but ultimately i think my individual health was important. after the season i tried to talk to as many people as possible. at the same time, i wanted to let them know before the end of free agency certainly before the draft, so they could make the arrangements for finding my replacement. >> when you told them what did they say? >> they were supportive. the organization has been great. they understand -- >> they asked you if you wanted to meet with someone else, didn't you? >> they did. which i think is good. i think you should talk to as many people as possible. >> what are you going to do now?
8:08 am
>> i think i'm going to go back to school. i have interesting opportunities. i was a history undergrad. there's things i could do in academics or business. i need to learn more. there's a lot on the table. >> do you want to teach? >> professor borland. >> potentially. we'll see. a lot could happen. >> all right, chris, courageous decision. thank you so much for coming. >> thanks for having me. >> fascinating. president obama has signed off on his picks for march madness. on a much lighter sports note this morning, in his official bracket the president chose kentucky, arizona, villanova and duke kentucky taking it all, beating villanova for the national title. as for us no surprise charlie picked duke to win the championship game over kentucky. gayle has the same result for the final and also has the maryland terrapins reaching the sweet 16. everyone knows that buffalo will beat maryland in the second round that will be a different conversation. >> you may leave now, jeff glor. >> kentucky wins over duke
