Default Re: NIH Confirms Junior Seau Died With CTE

Feel free to form your own conclusions re. the openness and honesty of the NFL regarding this matter after reviewing this timeline I've put together below.


FOOTBALL/CTE TIME LINE


2002.......first presentation of sports related CTE diagnosis (NFL vehement denial of relationship)

2005........publication of above case in peer-reviewed neurosurgical journal (immediate NFL denial of relationship and demand for retraction.............NFL Committee formed to investigate relationship [publishing physician was denied being part of committee])

2007........NFL committee official conclusion statement: There is no connection of repeated football head trauma and chronic brain damage

2010........NFL official statement to teams and players: Research does not support multiple concussions leading to chronic brain damage, if each incident is properly managed.

2012........new NFL official statement to team and players: Traumatic brain injuries may lead to problems with memory, communication, personality changes as well as depression, and early onset dementia, which can change your life, and your family’s life forever.
