* Dr. Joseph Maroon was among the National Football League representatives who testified before the Judiciary Committee last year in hearings that blew open the concussion issue and spurred the league’s shakeup of its committee. Can you comment on Dr. Maroon’s testimony and in what measures you think, as a result of that testimony, he is part of the NFL’s past problem on brain injury policy and can be a credible part of its future solutions?

* Since Dr. Maroon is also medical director of World Wrestling Entertainment, can you also address whether the Judiciary Committee should and will do a parallel probe of brain injuries in the pro wrestling industry?
