The National Football League has given it’s largest donation ever, all in the name of learning more about brain injuries.
The league gave $30 million to the National Institutes of Health today to fund research and “lead the way” on the issue, said NFL chief Roger Goodell. The move comes amid a slew of lawsuits by former players and an ever-increasing body of knowledge about the long-term dangers of hits to the head. (Even lifelong fans are getting antsy about watching.)
What do you think about the league’s donation? Too little too late, or a conscientious effort to help reduce traumatic brain injuries?
