"Punch drunk" is such a common term that should it not have its own page, even if it merely says See Dementia Pugilistica? Visitors to the Glossary may like to see it there. --Ric 10:59, 3 Mar 2006 (CST)

I don't see why you need two pages. If you click on the glossary and don't understand a term, you might be more inticed to click on it and learn about it. The problem with creating two pages, is that you are at a risk, of having two separate articles forming. I think the benefit of the redirect is that people can write an article, and use the "other" term, and still get pointed to the right direction. I think also that the glossary is meant to be a bigger discussion of a term and it's history and importance to the sport, than what you could find by looking something up in a dictionary, or googling it.--Matt Tegen 12:20, 3 Mar 2006 (CST)

Have the fighters mentioned in this article been 'officially' diagnosed as suffering from the disease? If not, they should be out--Wouter 06:39, 27 June 2008 (UTC).

I think for the sake of not offending fighters living or dead. A source should be provided for every single fighter.--Matt Tegen 18:50, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
