The New York Times on March 24 published a damning report with the headline, "N.F.L.s Flawed Concu sion Research and Ties to Tobacco Industry." The reportin e sence claims the league relied onflaweddata regarding alink between football and brain disease.The NFL, through an advertisement adjacent to the report,aggre sively deniedthe storyandpromotedits lengthyresponse on Twitter and Facebook. The leaguetook its Marlon Brown Jersey response one step further Monday with a letter to the Times, demanding that it retract the story.Ironic, or totally strategic #NFL #programmatic ad buy? NFL safety ads atop @nytimes investigative concu sion story. pic.twitter.com/20F80mqLTC Andrew Fingerman (@awfingerman) March 25, 2016MORE: Faces of the NFL's crisis | Bruce Arians is the foolThe letter to the Times, which can be read in its entiretyhere, Bronson Kaufusi Jersey was obtained byPOLITICO. Here's an excerpt:Its sensational headline notwithstanding, the story did not show any meaningful "ties to the tobacco industry." Nor did it present a shred of evidence to support its Breshad Perriman Jersey thesis that the NFL intentionally concealed concu sion research data. By publishing the story, fully aware of the falsity of the underlying facts, the Times reckle sly disregarded the truth and defamed the NFL, even under the public-figure Sullivan test.Accordingly, we demand that the story immediately be retracted, and we reserve our rights more broadly. We also request that the Times's reporters and editors who worked on this story preserve their notes, correspondence, emails, recordings and work papers and all other electronic and hard copy documents generated or received in connection with their work.The NFL's six-page letter details ways in which it claims the Times did not reportfacts correctly. The league hopesfor a "prompt response De'Ondre Wesley Jersey " from the Times.
