NFLPA's Smith Commends College Players For Effort To Unionize
Published January 29, 2014
Smith was asked whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL team owners are adequately addressing the concussion issue. He said, “My job is to never be satisfied about where we are with the issue of players' health. ... The question we ask ourselves is, ‘Are there things we can do to make our players safer?’ And the answer is yes. Are there things tomorrow that we’re not doing today? Yes. ... We need to move to a world where if our player is hurt, he gets treated” (“CBS This Morning,” 1/29).
