    NFL Super Bowl Ad Emphasizes Safety

    By: Seeger Weiss LLP on February 7, 2012

    If you were one of the 111.3 million people watching the Super Bowl this past Sunday, you may have noticed that one of the big game’s much-anticipated commercials actually came from the National Football League itself.

    In the clip below, which originally aired during the Giants-Patriots match, the NFL describes the history of football in the United States. Using the tagline “evolution”, the League emphasizes developments in the rules to promote player health and safety. The website advertised at the end of the commercial, titled “NFL Evolution | Health & Safety” includes an interactive feature that details these improvements more fully.

    The release of the multimillion dollar advertisement comes in the midst of much heated criticism of the medical supervision of players. As CNN reported just hours before the Super Bowl, the discussion was sparked as a result of hundreds of former players filing lawsuits against the NFL for a host of ailments (mostly related to brain damage) they say they developed because of inadequate treatment of injuries. One of the most notable cases was brought in early December on behalf of 11 former players by Seeger Weiss LLP, a national plaintiff’s law firm based in New York City. With extensive experience in drug injurypersonal injury and medical malpractice, Seeger Weiss offers to review the case of anyone who has been harmed by a sports injury at no cost. Learn more here.
