The NFL settled a class-action lawsuit brought by retired NFL players. The players alleged that the NFL illegally concealed the dangerous long-term health effects of concussions brought on by the tough, damaging style of play that the NFL glorified, including in its NFL Films productions. The recent release of the explosive documentary and book – both titled League of Denial – has further escalated attention on allegations that the NFL illegally concealed critical information.
