The NHL Commissioner Is Wrong About The Dangers Of Hockey
The ramifications of NFL executive Jeff Miller’s admission to a causal link between football and the brain disease CTE extend beyond the world of football.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman quickly distanced his league from Miller’s comments. “Well, first of all, I don’t feel that it’s either necessary or appropriate for me to comment on what the NFL either says or does,” Bettman told reporters at the NHL’s annual general managers meeting. “Secondly, I think it’s fairly clear that playing hockey isn’t the same as playing football.”
