What Andrew Luck’s retirement means to disillusioned first responders

MC and I sat down to discuss what I thought of Andrew Luck's announcement to retire from the NFL at the ripe old age of 27 and how his decision was likely very similar to when some folks leave the three disciplines.

Have a listen to our latest episode of What's Your Emergency and let us know what you think!

Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck suddenly retired right before the start of the season to the surprise of his fans, teammates and coaches. His reasons for leaving mainly focus on the physical dangers of modern American Football (Luck has had season ending shoulder and internal injuries in addition to multiple concussions). He is retiring at the ripe old age of 29 with only 12 years of Football experience. A recent Sports Illustrated article has details about Luck and his situation.
Sound like anyone you know in the three disciplines? Maybe it’s you? Disillusioned about the career field you chose and thinking about pulling a Luck and getting out? The guys say go for it.
