    "It's sad, but he's made the right decision, no doubt. He's had an excellent career and seems a real decent guy. It's sad to see him retire. He's 34, he's had a decent innings and hopefully he's picked the right time to retire. As everyone else has been saying, your health is your wealth. If he's had concussions over the years and he feels he's suffering from them, then obviously he feels that's right for him. But it's part of the game – players picking up injuries and getting knocks. He's a centre-forward, he's going to be running the channels with centre-halves - it's what you'd expect. I'm sure he's knocked a few centre-halves over himself and he's had a few knocks, and that's part of the game. There's risk involved in everything, particularly sport. It's a physical game. I think Kevin's picked the right time to say, 'Enough's enough'. We wish him well, of course. But if you're worried about the physical side of any sport, you're wary of it, then play chess.n It's part of the game, whether it be hurling, football, American football, the rugby lads, it's part of the game. When you cross that line, there is an element of risk involved. I don't think it would make a difference to the players playing now. When you cross that line, there's a chance that you might get a knock. I'm pretty sure there is a lot of research going into it. People question the PFA, this and that, but when you cross that line, there's a chance you might get hurt. They're the risks you take."
