My Trilogy on painkiller abuse in the NFL takes a deep dive into the problem it poses, some of the players it impacts, and the ensuing lawsuits. I’ve placed links to all three articles here as well as a few related pieces. I hope you’ll check it out.
Here are a few articles which supplement the Trilogy.
Sheilla Dingus founded Advocacy for Fairness in Sports in October 2016, after a stint with Defenders of the Wall, a New England Patriots based blog where she dived deep into the legal aspects of Deflategate. Along the way, she observed many inequities in sports and felt a need to address some of the under-reported stories in sports law. She draws from her background as a former professional dancer, who like many of the athletes she writes about, took an early retirement due to orthopedic injuries. After a return trip to college she worked for a legal software company, with seven years as a Project Manager and Analyst. She brings her analytical skills to the table in breaking down complex lawsuits, and enjoys pursuing her longtime interest in journalism.
