If you were interested in the interview with Brent Boyd about the concussions he suffered while playing in the NFL, and his concern over reports of the cause of death of Andre Waters, you’ll be interested in my blog post last February: Football, Concussion and Suicide.
The NFL says that on any given Sunday, eight players suffer from concussion – yet they are denying disability payments to their players who cannot work due to those injuries after they retire.
And here’s a surprise… the vignette concludes that the NFL may be more interested in profits than it is in the welfare of the players who made those profits for them.
Yeah. Surprise, surprise.
I can’t find a link to the story itself, but here is Cynthia Bowers, the reporter’s, blog post.
