    Great program. However, also see Mike Florio’s take on it at profootballtalk.com. The Union was never mentioned, and would also seem to be culpable. Perhaps they should be more concerned about player safety and well being – for life – than the League. I see it every day in the (in)actions of the Bell/Rozelle disability board – the guys who owe a duty of loyalty, skill and care to retired players seeking disability benefits are not doing what they should be, and in my opinion, are clueless about what needs to be done.

    I am a high school student, and two of my friends and I are conducting a National History project on the responsibility of the NFL to protect the safety of the players, specifically concussions. Basically, our topic is who has the responsibility of protecting the players, should the NFL have to be responsible for the players’ safety or should the players have to protect themselves? We are siding with the position that the players should be accountable fore their own health and safety. As you most likely know, their is a large amount of controversy about the NFL fining payers and getting heavily involved in their safety. We feel that players should know what they are getting themselves into, so they should be responsible for the injuries that are caused. The documentary, League of Denial, is a large contribution to our project. I would like to know if you could help us out by giving us your opinion on the topic and providing us with good information. It would also be a great help if you could help us get in to contact with people who are knowledgeable on our topic.

    Thank you,
    Andrew

    THIS IS FOR LAWYERS AND NEUROLOGISTS. We need a small group of courageous Neurologist, that will not be paid off by outside interests ( hint), to develope a SCALE showing tau protein saturation in CSF based on the ELISA kits which demonstrates levels of brain damage ( dementia ). 0 being no damage to 100 being full scale dementia. This can be developed within 1-3 months, since there is a test ( ELISA kit ) that exposes tau protein damage.
    Once this is in place, the causation issue is gone! The NFL Concussion Issue is a cover-up similar to the Tobacco Industry cover-up! We will prevail!
