The NFL Isn’t going to like Will Smith’s new movie, Concussion

NFL won't like Concussion movie with Will SmithThe NFL isn’t going to like the new movie Concussion starring Will Smith that opens in December.  The trailer shows that Dr. Bennet Omalu is portrayed as a brave pathologist and that the NFL is shown as the looming corporate power that will do anything to stop him from revealing the truth.

It’s rumoured that the studio wanted the movie softened to avoid complaints from the NFL.

Director and script writer Peter Landesman maintains that they did not cower to the NFL but did remove scenes that the NFL may have attacked them for.

The NFL is accused of knowingly allowing players to be repeatedly injured, sustaining debilitating brain damage.  This movie, with a star like Will Smith, will give voice to the doctor that brought the situation to public attention.
