However, the death tolls continued to rise and more players suffered emotional damage from reported head injuries. “Concussion likens Big Football to Big Tobacco and suggests an insidious reach into science, government, and the hearts of Americans everywhere,” states the Daily Beast. “It is not clear whether or not the ads will run during “Monday Night Football.”” according to the Huffington Post.
There aren’t any details on whether or not any players in the league currently support the film.
