To say that CTE is some hush hush thing the NFL covers up is a stretch. There is a reason Players wear helmets! Now how each teams medical staff/doctor handles head injuries is team based. If you are wearing a helmet you are doing something dangerous that could have consequences or cause injury, common sense.

I don’t see rugby guys/Australian rules football guys complaining. And those leagues are way more violent, and no helmets!
Any inkling of stats for concussions? I've thought for a long time that soft pads and helmets would cut way down on concussions.
