"A congressional investigation claims NFL officials “improperly attempted to influence the grant selection process” in a concussion study led by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), according to a report released on Monday." - USA Today
It is no surprise that there are reports that the NFL tried to screw around with a concussion study. The NFL is run by a collection of obnoxiously rich assholes and it won't get any better when these obnoxiously rich assholes die either. Because, when these obnoxiously rich assholes die, their obnoxiously rich asshole children will be appointed as the new owners. Thus, for the foreseeable future, the NFL will be run by a top of the line collection of obnoxiously rich assholes.
What is the point of even pretending to be surprised that the NFL would try to screw with a concussion study? Of course they did! All they care about is money, they don't care about the players out there running around and smashing into each other. Jerry Jones doesn't look at Tony Romo as a human being. He looks at Romo and sees a gigantic money sign with an arm. Everybody knows that behind the scenes, the NFL is one of the most evil corporations out there. We simply just do not care and that is the truth. This story will fade away and former NFL players will continue to die at an early age and we will all just pretend it isn't happening because we want to watch football every Sunday. I'm the guiltiest person of all. I already cannot wait till September 11th. Sneaky interesting game, Browns at Eagles. Bradford vs RGIII? Sounds like a fun game. Brain injuries though, total bummer. Scott Hanson on Red Zone is great though.
