Enough talk NFL

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell announced the new co-chairmen of their Head, Neck, and Spine Medical Committee.

The fact of the matter is for this change to be effective they need to do one thing.

Dr. Hunt Batjer of Northwestern University, Mr. Richard Ellenbogen of the University of Washington, and Dr. Mitchel Berger of the University of California, San Francisco are the new co-chairmen of the committee.

The problem has been the committee in the past has not recognized the work of Dr. Bennett Omalu who discovered Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy.

The evidence that Dr. Omalu and his partner Dr. Julian Bailes has compiled the committee has still rejected their work.

In the end, for the NFL to truly make strides in preventing concussions they need to recognize Dr. Omalu’s work.

Good night and good luck.
