A critical investigative report on what the NFL knew and when it knew it-The concussion crisis in professional football

A documentary produced by FRONTLINE which promises to be a critical analysis of the concussion crisis in the NFL is scheduled to be aired on Tuesday, October 8th, beginning at 9 PM, EST. The film entitled, “League
of Denial” has already received a great deal of publicity based upon the abrupt withdrawal of joint sponsorship by ESPN. News reports suggest that ESPN was pressured by senior NFL officials to end their association with this film.

In the film, FRONTLINE investigates the hidden story of the NFL’s response to head injuries. Through interviews with former players, scientists and other experts on the concussion issue, it examines what the NFL knew about the risks of such injuries, and when it knew it.
