Did The NFL Try To Buy Influence In A Government Concussion Study?
A congressional report says the NFL tried to sway a government research project on concussions.By Matt Moreno | May 23, 2016
Surprise: The NFL's "no strings attached," $16 million donation to the National Institutes of Health in 2012 apparently came with a lot of strings attached.
That's according to a new congressional report that says the NFL tried to influence the results of a government research project into concussions.
The newly released 91-page report says the NFL "improperly attempted to influence the grant selection process." It also refuted the league's complaints about the study's lead researcher, calling the complaints "unfounded."
