Somewhat quietly, the NFL is facing a monstrously large lawsuit.  Thousands of former NFL players are suing the league, claiming that the NFL hid information showing that the concussions suffered while playing football can lead to permanent brain injuries.  At present time the Associated Press reports that 3,377  former players are suing the NFL, including more than two dozen Hall of Fame players such as Eric Dickerson and Tony Dorsett.  This is approximately double the total number of players who are currently in the entire league!  Some estimate that the NFL could lose billions of dollars if it loses these cases.
