  • The NFL’s too chicken to sue The New York Times – but keeps squawking about it

    The Daily Beast - 03/30/2016

    But unless the league wants all of its concussion dirt spilled to the paper of record, legal experts predict there’s little chance the NFL is really going to sue The New York Times. If they did, it would open the league to a pre-trial procedure called discovery, effectively exposing any pertinent concussion-related documents in the league’s files to the lawyers for one of America’s greatest journalism institutions.
