Firestorm Over Jim Nantz’s Bizarre Concussion Comment on ‘Face the Nation’

Published February 4th, 2013, Uncategorized

Jason Lisk at USA Today‘s Big Lead Sports:

“It’s one thing to defend a buddy and make claims that are opinions in support of him, it’s another [for Jim Nantz] to go on a national television program [Face the Nation] and throw out a number that women’s soccer players are 2.5 times more likely to get a concussion than football players. Where’s the proof?”

Lisk also quotes our post here earlier today with strong criticism by Matt Chaney, author of the book Spiral of Denial.

Dustin Fink of theconcussionblog.com tweeted that “Jim Nantz lost a lot of respect from me.”
