I’m talking about how appearances are deceiving. In my writings I have given NYT plenty of credit for their leadership in the past. But the current pushing of neurocognitive testing and whitewashing of NFL / WWE doc Maroon are appalling. Ask a more specific question and I’ll try to answer it for you.

    Keep hammering on the Times. I would like to know how Maroon, Lovell, Collins, and UPMC are not the pimps they are known to be. Why does every league NFL, NBA, NFL and NHL, of course, WWE all use ImPact? Perhaps its becuase they can ensure a pliant interpretation of the tests results.

    Please Maroon et al perpetrated scientific fraud by denying the long-term issues with sports related head trauma. I gather both Messrs. Vecsey and Schwarz can read the long list of denials by team ImPact that spread to colleges and high schools.
