A central claim of the lawsuits against the NFL is that the League deliberately concealed the risks of repeated head injuries to thousands of players.

The problem is that thousands of former players with head injuries have neurological issues that require long-term medical treatment. The players need help and the NFL with its billions of dollars in profits is ignoring them.
