First Paragraph: In October, a congressional hearing on NFL head injuries took place, addressing growing concerns that the NFL has created a culture where players do not report injuries to team doctors. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was questioned before the House Judiciary Committee over the NFL's efforts to protect players from head injuries.

Good stuff and thanks for sharing this Mike! I still can't believe it took a congressional hearing to take concussions more seriously. Roger Goodell and the NFL should be embarrassed. I don't even think the updated concussion policy is very strong in protecting the players. It's just another reason for me not liking Goodell.
