The National Football League has been at the center of a controversy for some time now. With lawsuits being filed and the potential for these cases to cost the country's most popular sports league quite a bit of money, some fans in Chicago are taking notice.
The National Football League has been accused of knowing about the potential for its players to experience brain injuries and not acting on it in the past.

More than 80 pending lawsuits from former NFL athletes have been consolidated into a master complaint, one that includes more than 2,100 players.
