Suit Against NFL by former players for Brain Injuries

I don't think this should come as anything of a shock, as most of us are aware that 75 former players in the NFL are suing the NFL for concealing information about the long-term effects of a career of sustaining devastating hits and concussions, and the brain trauma and irreversible effects they can induce.

There is a good, short video CNN did with Fran Tarkenton and Fred McNeill about it. The bits with McNeill are good but sad. Interesting.

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
