Description
The NFL has agreed to end the use of a controversial race-based method of evaluating brain damage claims as part of its billion-dollar concussion settlement, months after a federal judge said she was “concerned” by the practice. On this week’s show, we’re breaking down the controversy, the NFL’s new move and what it means going forward.
