US to spend $14 million on concussion research, using NFL funds
Another PR stunt by the NFL. If the NFL was really concerned about their players then why did they employ Dr. NO (aka- Ira Casson) and Elliot Pelman to help CONCEAL and mislead NFL players about dangers of concussions and repeated hits to the head? Football is hazardous to your health. The league did everything possible to discredit Dr. Bennett Omalu who discovered CTE in deceased NFL players who committed suicide. Ask Dr. Omalu about how the NFL tried to squash him but he never gave up. Dr. Omalu even spent his own money doing the required research. The real question is what did the NFL know and when did they know it? When the NFL opens their books and records then and only then will the truth be known.

Roger, NOBODY believes you anymore!
TOOOOOOOO bad NFL because your dirty deeds and GREED continue to dominate the sporting and human interest news. No where in Corporate America could any for profit business treat their workers the way the NFL does. Especially a non profit business like the NFL that grosses $10,000,000,000 annually with an anti trust exemption. The NFL doesn’t even pay their medical bills. The Federal Government (medicare) pay’s their medical bills for their injured and disabled employees. May be this is one reason why medicare is going broke and the NFL’s revenue continues to sky rocket………….
