"League of Denial" Set to Hit Stores

"League of Denial" has found itself in the news a lot in recent memory. Between ESPN controversially splitting from their collaboration with PBS Frontline bringing "League of Denial" to the world in television documentary form to the recent publicity tour and excerpt postings, people know about "League of Denial"

Co-written by ESPN investigative reporters (and brothers) Steve Fainaru and Mark Fainaru-Wada, "League of Denial" explores the murky world of concussions, head trauma, the NFL, what knowledge is known, and when it was known. After the NFL settled with the over 4,000 former players in the concussion lawsuit, we thought that we would never know the league's involvement with concussion research, their knowledge at certain points in time, or potential cover-ups. 

Now, we may have found our answers.

Patrick Hruby will be presenting on the topic of safety issues and potential remedies at the Sport For Social Change Conference on October 25th at Drexel University.

Here is a trailer for the upcoming PBS Frontline documentary based on the "League of Denial" book:
