Makes sense. Why would the NFL want to offer its product to an entity that is going to bash it?

ESPN was perfectly free to run the series as long it was willing to deal with the repurcussions of the NFL taking its business elsewhere. Of course ESPN folded. Apparently they didn't have a real desire to tell the true story. Same with the concussion story.
