What are the dimensions of the mess?

1.  The Northwestern University NLRB decision that found Division I football players to be employees... now pending appeal with the NLRB in Washington

3.  Issues, not unlike those in the NFL, concerning long-term bad effects of footballers' head injuries

... just to name the big issues.
