the part about the NFL hiding it is part of the claims of the players' lawsuits.
The part of the NFL denying it existed, pretty sure there are articles with quotes from the NFL denying it.
but that's only 1994-onward. that makes the slice of players who can make that claim a lot smaller
Good hopefully the NFL dies off over the next 10 years.
What did they lie about? I missed that in the article?
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell did not acknowledge a connection between head injuries on the football field and later brain diseases while defending the league's policies on concussions before Congress on Wednesday.
That frustrated several members of the House Judiciary Committee, including the committee chairman, Michigan Democrat John Conyers, when Goodell told him the NFL isn't waiting for that debate to play out and is taking steps to make the game safer.
"I just asked you a simple question. What is the answer?" persisted Conyers.
Goodell replied by saying a medical expert could give a better answer than he could. But some House members complained later that Dr. Ira Casson, chairman of the NFL's committee on concussions, had not testified.
Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., gave Casson some exposure anyway, playing a clip of a TV interview in which he denied evidence of a link between multiple head injuries in NFL players with brain disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer's.

did they testify or have they given a public statement?
