    Looks like another opportunity for grandstanding and diverting themselves from the real issues facing this country, during their 2.5 day work week. Wonder how far this will go and who will be their "star power" for these proceedings, hopefully someone will stand up and tell this guy there are more important things for congress to do instead of pandering to special interests.

    president of the Brain InjuryAssociation of New York State, MICHAEL V. KAPLEN, ESQ. today called upon Congress to conduct hearings regarding the fraudulent medical research on concussions conducted, reported and relied upon by the National Football League in determining when injured players can return to play.
    According to Kaplen, when the NFL conducts fraudulent medical research
    by questionable medical professionals this exposes their own players to
    further life long brain injury. But a far greater risk says Kaplen is
    presented to all children participating in contact sports who might also be
    suffering from the effects of concussions. This mushrooming umbrella of
    oblivion to the pervasive consequences emanating from sports concussion
    injuries creates an epidemic of indifference. A national medical emergency
    exists declares Kaplen that needs investigation by the Congressional Brain
    Injury Task Force.
    Following a report earlier this week in ESPN Magazine exposing the
    fraudulent research and conclusions regarding player safety in return to
    play decisions following a concussion, ESPN Family, aired a story yesterday
    with interviews from leading experts in the field of sports concussions.
    The findings and conclusions of the NFL "safety" studies were put into
    serious question by the report and the findings are "shocking" according to
    Kaplen.
