PBS Frontline Trailer cryptically warns about NFL power

 

We've been all over the news of ESPN pulling out of League of Denial, the PBS Frontline special on concussions. But did PBS have a thought in the back of their minds that this would happen?

Check out the trailer for League of Denial, and pay special attention to the 1:50 mark and what the expert says:

Is that ominous or what? "You can't go against the NFL, They'll squash you." Sure enough, after Thursday night's news of ESPN pulling out of the documentary, a report surfaced claiming that the NFL pressured ESPN to pull out of the documentary. That comment seemed like a foreshadowing of what was going to come, and the trailer wasn't even released until after the news broke. At the very least, it's food for thought about ESPN's denials about the NFL's involvement in the matter.
