The Blitz – Weekend Edition – 1/27/2017

Concussion Discussion:

I just came across this yesterday. It was written in September, but former OL Matt Chatham’s review of “Concussion” is stunning.  Well worth the time to read.

The Blitz 1/24/17

NFL Sidelines:


Will he face discipline in regard to NFL media policy?


Will the Steelers be fined for concealing his injury?

Conduct Detrimental:

“The NFL is playing with fire,” says Daniel Wallach of the 57 concussion litigation opt-out cases now proceeding.  Wallach and Werly host UGA Law professor Dr. Thomas Baker III in this episode of Conduct Detrimental.  They discuss whether or not they feel Roger Goodell will see deposition in these cases, and give their impressions on how they feel the NFL will fare in this litigation.  Also the impact of  Deflategate, “the gift that keeps on giving” is discussed in regard to how it may impact NFL player discipline in 2017.  How will the NFL handle domestic violence going forward.  Will Jason Pierre-Paul prevail in his medical invasion of privacy suit against ESPN?  All this and much more is debated in this podcast.

While Orr’s retirement is due to a neck injury rather than concussion, it does show how quickly injuries can take their toll in the NFL, and also perhaps that younger players are becoming more aware.
