    The NFL has taken major strides in preventing and treating concussions in recent years—at least when it comes to players. Nobody cares about the referees.

    Let me just start by saying they have some classy fans in Oklahoma City. Last night, one of the referees for the game between the Thunder and Bulls got taken out and hit the floor pretty hard. However, instead of cheering—which you would expect in places like Chicago or Philadelphia—the Thunder fans reacted in horror, […]
