League of Denial
The National Football League is a multi-billion dollar empire, but keeping 85 million fans entertained has come at great cost to the players. There's an emerging public health crisis of brain damage sustained by America's gridiron warriors and thousands are suing the NFL for burying research that links football to brain damage. Monday, Doug talks to investigative journalist Mark Fainaru-Wada about what the NFL knew, when it knew it and what risk athletes take in football.
Tuesday, October 8th, PBS Frontline premieres their new documentary "League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis." Watch it at 8:00 p.m. on KUED Channel 7. For listings in your area, visit Frontline.
Mark Fainaru-Wada is co-author of the book "League of Denial." [ Amazon | Indiebound ]
