The recent PBS “Frontline” documentary and accompanying book League of Denial raised eyebrows in addressing the severity and prevalence of concussions among NFL players and how the league has addressed those issues. League of Denial posits that the NFL, over a period of nearly two decades, sought to cover up and deny mounting evidence of the connection between football and brain damage. Here’s your chance to hear and ask questions of the two journalists who broke the story … and to assess how dangerous the sport of football, at all levels, really is.
