30 years of blatant lies from the NFL - what else do you need to know?

I will never support a sport that denies brain injury after 30 years of hushing up the issue - only to finally be caught red-handed and spend almost a billion in lawsuits to cover it up.

The sport is disgusting, the people who manage it are corrupt, and the ones that get hurt are the players and their families. The NHL and the broadcast companies will continue to make money off the horrible brain trauma and the deaths of these players.

Truly an American success story.

Unbelievably impactful

Anyone who has played a contact sport, knows someone who has, or is planning to let their kids play one, should watch this film. Particularly if that sport is football. Yet, it's illustrative and likely applicable to other sports, such as soccer, gymnastics, lacrosse, and other sports where collisions and concussions are likely to occur.
