Football dominates the sports headlines this week. The NFL is under fire for not following its own concussion protocol after hits to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's head in the season-opener Thursday night. Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce and Bill share their thoughts. Also, a potential class-action lawsuit is filed against Pop Warner football, and more athletes join Colin Kaepernick in protesting the national anthem. Plus, Bill and Charlie discuss the news from this week's Basketball Hall of Fame induction — including photographs that make Shaquille O'Neal look like like a point guard.
