When It Comes To Brain Injury, Authors Say NFL Is In A 'League Of Denial'
WESA-FM
When the Pittsburgh Steelers won four Super Bowls in the 1970s, you could argue that no one played a bigger role than Mike Webster. Webster was the Steelers' center, snapping the ball to the quarterback, then waging war in the trenches, slamming his body and helmet into defensive players to halt their rush. He was a local hero, which is why the city was stunned when his life fell apart. He lost all his money, and his marriage, and ended up spending nights in the bus terminal in Pittsburgh.

Ignored Aspect of Health Deserves More Thought
Northwest Times
Since the turn of century, the biggest concerns among sports medics have been ACL injuries — particularly in women — concussions, elbow injuries — particularly among pitchers — heat illness, steroids, spinal injuries, and conditions which might cause sudden cardiac arrest. Except for the latter issue, though, the emphasis on these others may have been somewhat misplaced.

Why the NFL's Concussion Policy Just Isn't Working
Bleacher Report
The system is supposed to work. A player is watched by not only a team's medical staff, but the officiating crew, a specialized observer up in the booth with the replay official and the plethora of cameras that show every angle of every play. When any of these sees a possible concussion, an independent neurologist on the sidelines will conduct a series of tests and determine whether a player should be taken off the field or return to the game. Except, that's not how it works at all.
