Ignore Concussions, Says Hilarious Radio Caller Who Is Solving Terrorism By Banning Books And Requiring Kids To Play Football
In Case You Missed It, Here’s The Entire ‘League Of Denial’ NFL Concussion Documentary That Aired Last Night On PBS
Turned down by ESPN because it basically puts the NFL on par with the tobacco industry for covering up the harm their product does to it’s participants. You can make up your own mind, but we think it’s pretty damn compelling.
The NFL Will Pay $765 Million In A Concussion-Related Lawsuit Settlement Without Admitting Wrongdoing
Wow. A federal judge just announced that the NFL will resolve its lawsuits with over 4,500 former players by doling out $765 million, with most of the money going to players and families and $85 million going to fund medical exams, concussion-related compensation and research.
PBS’s Frontline recently announced that a two-part documentary titled “League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis” will air in October. ESPN’s Outside The Lines is co-producing the project with the network.
It’s no secret that multiple concussions suffered over a career can lead to long-term brain damage, but this is the first time we’ve seen this happen.

Here’s a look at the hit and the implications it has on the concussion debate in the NHL.
George Hill took a nasty elbow to the brain case this week, causing him to miss Game 5 and now Game 6 tonight. He’s arguably been their best player in the series, but the NBA’s new concussion policy is preventing him front playing. Would they do the same thing if Carmelo was experiencing headaches? We examine the policy and show the play where he gets popped by Tyson Chandler after the jump.
