Description

The NFL’s 2013 class-action settlement with retired players over claims that the League concealed a connection between game-related hits to the head and long-term cognitive damage was the first of its kind in sports history. 




Players experiencing head trauma would finally have some recourse and support. 




However, the process for evaluating players’ claims incorporated a controversial scoring system called race-norming. 


And it turns out these race norms made it harder for Black players to qualify for awards.
