Still, if this part of the labor deal is not negotiated it could result in an NFL lockout that could result in devastating losses for players and owners. The author is making this argument due to the fact that the National Football League has an annual 9 BILLION dollar revenue intake and every Sunday that there is not a game could result in hundreds of millions of dollars being lost not to mention the offseason losses and most importantly fan’s would lose their beloved football season. Bringing urgent awareness to this matter is of utmost importance to the author as this is a time sensitive situation where it is looking as if neither side is willing to budge and actually instead arguing about what should be done. A target audience for this article would fall into that of the NFL fans. Plain and simple the NFL fans are the fuel that keep the NFL going for if there were no fans to watch it, there would be no revenue for players and no revenue for owners.
Statement of the Problem: Concussions are becoming a more common and more serious within football.

Research has been conducted to compare different types of helmets and their design, however in order to better understand the new technology present within football helmets research will need to be conducted using high school and college programs to better understand which helmets they are using within the program and for what reason.

Roger Goodell Commissioner was concerned over the replacement and Scott Green, the president of the NFL Referees Association announced that a new contract was agreed on. The ref's sat out for 115 days. Tim Millis, the executive director of the NFLRA, told USA TODAY Sports that a deal had been reach, “very good” and that most of the discussion were question-and answer session on non-economics matters. So the official got a deal worth returning for, but will there officiating really change the game. The controversial “ Fail Mary” definitely had some impact in the game between Seattle Seahawks and Green bay Packer.
v. National Football League, they were accused of forming a monopoly. The NFL stopped dealing with American Needle Inc. and stopped giving multiple trademark licenses and gave it solely to Reebok International. NFL believed they had no independent value; therefore they did not fall under the antitrust laws. With Reebok having exclusive rights, it limited the competition and had control of production and pricing. In this case, the judge has ruled that NFL is not exempt from antitrust laws.

Critique: The NFL’s crisis management is downright atrocious. The pure failure of signal detection is what not only caused this game’s outcome from happening but the referee lockout as well. It’s even worse because their crisis management plan should have used the player’s lockout as a reference to prevent the referee lockout. The only thing I think the NFL did correctly in their crisis management is the quickness it took for them to respond to the immediate outrage of fans due to the Packers/Seahawks outcome. The NFL didn’t waste any time in stating that they will be backing up the decision made by the replacement referees however I must ask where that quickness was when the referee’s contract
His request was granted in the form of a police autopsy, which showed that he had a brain tumor(A+E Networks, 2012). This has been debated on whether the tumor caused Whitman to act out in this killing spree, Others say that by the way he planned and carried out the actions of his crime that the tumor did not affect his mental abilities. When we look at the fact, that prior to the shooting spree , Whitman reported severe headaches, and consulted a therapist concerned with his own mental health. Then it may be reasonable, to assume that the tumor later found could have contributed to his killing spree. Medical experts , disagree over whether the brain tumor found in his autopsy had any effect on his actions (A+E Networks, 2012).
The use of performance enhancing drugs in the sport of American football has been an ongoing issue since the late 1980s, especially in the National Football League (NFL). The NFL began to test players for steroid use during the 1987 season, and started to issue suspensions to players during the 1989 season.  The NFL has issued as many as six random drug tests to players, with each player receiving at least one drug test per season.  One notable incident was when in 1992, when player Lyle Alzado died from brain cancer, which he attributed to the use of anabolic steroids, however, Alzado's doctors stated that anabolic steroids did not contribute to his death.  The use of performance enhancing drugs has also been found in other levels of football, including play at college level, and even high school play.
The NFL also had the media advantage. For example, in the 1960s, Sports Illustrated's lead football writer was Tex Maule, whose previous job had been as public relations director for Pete Rozelle, the general manager of the NFL's Rams. Maule "was certainly an NFL loyalist," and several sports reporters took his deprecatory columns about the AFL as fact. In another example, another former Rozelle employee, Tex Schramm, was CBS's director of sports during the period when that network refused to give AFL scores. Many play-by-play and color announcers on CBS were former NFL
The staph infections are another obstacle the Cleveland Browns face. Joe Jurevicius sued the Browns for the unclean Browns training facility. This law suit says that Anthony Miniaci and Richard Figler failed to warn him about the therapy equipment not always being sterilized. Kellen Winslow is another browns player that suffered staph infection. These two browns are part of the six browns players in four years to contract staph
