The NFL’s Streisand Effect Continues…

Aug 27, 2013

Yesterday, we posted an update on the NFL concussion coverup with ESPN and mentioned the unintended consequences of The Streisand Effect. (Click HERE to read the entry on Wikipedia.) Well, you know it’s becoming a major embarrassment and a joke when it starts to get attention on the other side of the world where they don’t even watch American football. This morning, the Taiwanese television network that produces those funny NMA animations on YouTube have already done their take on the NFL/ESPN coverup.
This isn’t going away any time soon – thanks, NFL. We couldn’t have done a better job ourselves!
