PBS two-hour Football documentary claim the league has covered up how football inflicted long-term brain injuries on many players in the PBS’ Frontline series League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis.”
It’s tagline: What did the NFL know, and when did it know it?
Former New York Giants linebacker Harry Carson, who is featured in the film because of his own past with concussions said, “I think it’s important to have the information out there. “This is a new phenomena that has come to the public’s attention, but the reality is this has been around since the beginning of football. There were injuries that occurred that killed players back in the early 1900s. Players getting their bell rung or sustaining concussions, that’s always been a part of the game. It will always be a part of the game. But for parents, they really need to be informed. They really need to know what they are signing their kids up for.”
