NFL Concussion Documentary
October 7, 2013
This Tuesday, October 8, PBS’ Frontline will air the first of a two-part documentary called “League of Denial: the NFL’s Concussion Crisis,” which examines the claims of former NFL players that the league has covered up the risks of football-related brain injuries.
Drawing on the forthcoming book League of Denial by Steve Fainaru and Mark Fainaru-Wada of ESPN, the film will explore what the league knew and when, what the truth is about football’s effect on the brain, and what can be done.
The film, League of Denial: The NFL’s Concussion Crisis, will air on FRONTLINE on October 8 & 15. Check your local listings here.
