In the wake of the recent BountyGate scandal, we now hear that over 50 former NFL players have filed lawsuits with the National Football League (a total of 659 such lawsuits for injury & concussions).  Game Changers Live addresses the topic head on as we are joined by two experts who focus on the current state & future impact of concussions in athletics.

Our panel includes Dr. Jill Brooks & attorney Eric Macramalla (@EricOnSportsLaw). Dr. Brooks, a clinical neuropsychologist who runs Head to Head Consultants, has conducted extensive research on this topic, which has been presented at numerous conferences across the country.  She recently produced the documentary "The Female Athlete and Concussion" for The Big Ten Network.

Eric Macramalla, an attorney for Gowlings Lafleur Henderson in Ottawa, focuses on the legal aspects of concussions in the NHL & NFL.

An alarming number of former athletes in the NHL, NFL, and throughout college athletics have committed suicide after pointing to problems they attribute to concussion-related brain damage. Changes are imminent & Game Changers Live looks forward to discusses this frightening subject.

We'll also cover the NBA Playoffs, LeBron's mouthpiece, Derrick Rose's injury, Pujols' struggles, and more throughout the show!

If you have questions for our guests, call the show at (347) 215-6813.

Join us Wednesday, May 2nd at 1:00pm ET!
