In an article for The Register-Guard, Ann Skeet comments on the ethical considerations for the NFL and football fans in general, in light of a recent study about chronic traumatic encephalopathy in former football players.

“This could be akin to the tobacco companies sitting on information about the harms of tobacco,” Skeet said. “They do have obligations to their employees to keep them safe. Whether that’s written down in the law or you see that as a moral obligation, it’s considered a basic fundamental. You should be able to do your work safely.” (AP Photo/Peter Anfrews)
