ayeauxmouse says:

s/o Dr. Omalu for being a stand up guy

A. Playa says:

How the hell did Will Smith get the part of Dr Omalu?? He looks nothing like him, Forrest Whitaker should've gotten the part

Rafael Gomez says:

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that all of that abuse on the head and the body will cause permanent damage

Seth Peake says:

I just about cried seeing Mike's Interview.

FinFet says:

Play football with foot not head.

Mike P says:

I’m sorry now, watching football, I wasn’t expecting players to have these kinds of numerous life long injuries and the suicides, I heard 2000 former players have filed a lawsuit. Football was meant to be played outside on dirt and grass and in weather.

Tim Menges says:

Mike Webster was my hero growing up. Watching him win 4 super bowls thru a 17 year career seemed unimaginable for anyone else to repeat, then years later looking at the toll it took on him my thoughts were why would anyone want to repeat it. So very sad and it definitely worries me about my future.

Reng Deng says:

Narrator has a good voice

that's entertainmnt . . .

MMD says:

The story of Iron Mike just breaks my heart…not that the other football players who suffered (and suffer to this day) don't have sad stories..but this one really gets to me.

Robert Libby says:

The first medical warnings over football head injuries was around 1933. In 1952 doctors said any player with 3 or more concussions should retire. The NFL is a criminal organization and the owners are racist elites who care about nobody.

First Name Last says:

Sometimes you just have to shrug your shoulders and move on. Football should disappear. Not because consenting grown men make a informed decision but because it’s existence necessarily requires minors to train for years with the vast majority never making a penny from it yet suffering long term damage.


There is literally nothing that I care less about… They took the money. Stop complaining.

Rainbow Sparkles says:

The NfL are responsible for a lot of suffering and deaths. So shameful they wanted to brush it under the carpet

Rex Lin says:

Antonio Brown


Always a pleasure to watch these Frontline episodes

Chris harwell says:

Such a great doc I watch this multiple times over the years

Fernando Cortes says:

40:30 Evidencia de gravedad permanente

Mike Jennings says:

The NFL made 9 billion paid no taxes
