"League of Denial" on Frontline airs on Thursday at 7 pm

The National Football League, a multibillion-dollar commercial juggernaut, presides over America’s indisputable national pastime. But the NFL is under assault as thousands of former players and a host of scientists claim the league has covered up how football inflicted long-term brain injuries on many players. In a special investigation, FRONTLINE joins prize-winning journalists Steve Fainaru and Mark Fainaru-Wada to reveal the hidden story of the NFL and brain injuries, drawn from their forthcoming book League of Denial (Crown Archetype, October 2013).

"League of Denial" on Frontline can be seen on Thursday, October 10th at 7:00 p.m. on channel 3.
