The biggest lawsuit in sports history was filed by 2,138 former National Football League players on June 7 in federal court, charging that the NFL has “turned a blind eye to the risk” of repeated head injuries and was guilty of “mythologizing and glorifying violence through the media including its NFL Films division.” The players and their families claim that the serious health ramifications of continual blows to the head, which are integral to the sport, were hidden and that the NFL “generated false findings” to that end.
