From concussion doctors pushing “science” that benefits their hidden interests to lawyers clamoring for billion-dollar settlements in scam litigation, America’s game has become so big that everybody wants a cut.

Football players don’t commit suicide at elevated levels, die younger than their peers, or suffer disproportionately from heart disease. In fact, professional players live longer, healthier lives than American men in general. More than that, football is America’s most popular sport. The War on Football: Saving America’s Game rescues reality from the hype—and in doing so, may just ensure that football remains America’s game.
