  • Did the NFL cover up information on head injuries?

    Evidence has come out that the NFL knew more about the dangers of head injuries in football than they claimed.

    I think so. And ESPN reported during the NASCAR race that Former Bear coach and current ESPN analyst Mike Ditka was released from the hospital following a light stroke. He needs to watch his temper also.

      If the NFL did then so did the NFLPA as they are also on the disability panel.

        The decision for disability was not made by the NFL or the player's union.

            They are part of the panel. Not made by the union as a whole... or the NFL as a whole.

            Pmts were recommended by the panel.

              So you are saying the player representatives from the NFLPA did not inform the powers that be for the NFLPA about this?

                I am saying we don't know who voted for payments... it was a vote.

                The players union would want payments for injured former players.

                The owners not so much... and the NFL maybe not at all.

                It is a recommendation based on their conclusions for those certain players.
