PBS concussion documentary a devastating must-see
The Express-Times
Every NFL fan must watch "League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis," the brilliant and devastating documentary produced by PBS. This is the documentary — there is a book as well — that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell bullied ESPN out of final cooperation with. It's easy to see why. It is absolutely devastating. Viewing will require a strong stomach. Thank goodness Goodell couldn't browbeat PBS into silence.

Ian Needleman, who led the research, said, "We put together a hypothesis that since oral health can affect quality of life it could have an impact on their training and performance. And that's really what led to this research."
