Default Will Smith’s NFL Concussions Drama Will Shoot in Pittsburgh

This could be a legitimate game changer. Will Smith is set to star in a film that threatens to expose the NFL’s decades-long cover up of traumatic brain damage in its players, and the movie will begin production shortly in the very place where the controversy began: Pittsburgh.

Smith will portray Dr. Bennet Omalu, the Nigerian-born forensic pathologist who first discovered chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in the brain of former Pittsburgh Steelers center Mike Webster in 2002...

Expect this to turn into a movement to ban football, even though the rate of concussions in soccer -- supposedly a "safe" sport -- is equal to that of football.

It sounds like a long and boring movie. I guess that means it will be an Oscar nominee.

You sure about that? Just going off sports radio but I'd heard it's much higher than other sports in the NFL (too lazy to research).

This is America. Everything we like, we know is bad for us: alcohol, crack, meth, anything that emits carbon, etc... it's all about money, and so is the NFL.

Football is here to stay !

A Norwegian study found that 35% of 69 Division I soccer players had abnormal electroencephalogram (EEG) patterns. This is more than twice the rate of abnormal EEG patterns in control subjects. Retired soccer players had several brain abnormalities including reduced cortical tissue and increased lateral ventricle size.
BAN SOCCER!!!

The NFL means far too much to the economy for it to be banned.
