Al Sharpton to Testify on NFL Head Injuries?

So I'm reading an AP story here about head injuries in the NFL and boxing and Congress apparently has decided to get involved since they obviously have nothing better to do than meddle in every aspect of American life. So they've got some retired NFL players and boxers listed, but one name stands out and for the life of me I can't figure out why this loudmouth is part of the panel.
The House Judiciary Committee says retired boxing champion Thomas Hearns, former NFL players Ted Johnson, Kyle Turley and Bernie Parrish, and the Rev. Al Sharpton are among witnesses who will appear at next week's hearing on head injuries in football.

The committee will hold a session called "Legal Issues Relating to Football Head Injuries, Part II" on Monday in Detroit. At a hearing Oct. 28 in Washington, lawmakers questioned NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about the league's approach to concussions.
To the best of my knowledge the racial arsonist Sharpton has never played a down of football nor ever been a boxer, so what on earth is the point of having him there, other than to get some facetime?

Considering the idiotic nonsense that dribbles from his piehole he may well have been dropped on his head a few times. Seriously though, what's the point of having this punk there?
