May 26: Jon Pierik in The Age reports: Concussion campaigner Peter Jess has written to Gillon McLachlan and renewed his call for change in how the AFL handles concussion research in the wake of a damning finding in the US of the NFL's procedures.

US congressional investigators have found more than half-a-dozen NFL health officials had led an improper campaign last year to influence a government research study on football and brain disease by a prominent Boston University researcher – more ...

May 25: Editorial, Boston Herald: Sometimes it’s not about air in footballs or wealthy quarterbacks. Sometimes it’s just about right and wrong.

And the congressional report issued Monday on the appalling conduct of the National Football League with regard to a study of repeated head trauma shows the league for the dishonest bullies that they are.

Going to the footy in Melbourne in 1965 was still like it was pre-war, with run-down facilities at most grounds, and the most basic provision of comforts, frightful loos, a maelstrom of bodies and hands to buy food and drinks. Food = pie or hot dog (a burger was too hard for the provenders). Drink = beer. Most patrons got to venues by train or tram, although more and more were using their cars. Parking was often 20 minutes walk away from the ground
