Just when you thought you were safe from NFL legal stories ...

Sorry, folks. Gotta go there. Two important matters to report on today.

First, an important step in the massive class action brought against the league by about one-third of all former NFL players -- particularly, about 4,200 of 12,000.

These players (or their families), in more than 200 separately filed lawsuits, contend that the NFL for years deliberately knew of the dangers of playing after having suffered a concussion, but withheld that vital information.
