Lawyers for former players who are suing the NFL over concussions said that the league has profited from "glorified violence."
Wow, what a revelation! Too bad the players didn't profit as well. Uh, well unless you consider being paid millions suitable compensation. And it's too bad the NFL forced them to play without the option of getting a real job in a concussion free environment like McDonalds.
David Frederick, who is representing the players, also said that the league knew about concussion issues for
decades prior to the creation of the NFL's Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
committee in 1994.
Wow, what a revelation! The NFL knew that smashing your head repeatedly could cause concussion issues, and neglected to enlighten the rest of the world? I better not hear football players weren't warned about grass stains from real turf.
More than 4,000 former players, who claim to be suffering from ailments
ranging from dementia, depression, Alzheimer's disease and other
neurological problems. Jeezus, I should get in on this. I have ALL those symptoms.
Alright, I thought about ending this entry with these facts. But then I thought, "I'm not coming all this way to pull a Leon Lett and spike the ball on the five yard line! No way! I'm going all the way in and doing the Icky shuffle. So here's my final thought.
You played in the NFL for 10 years and now you're semi-retarded and
looking for a way to make some more easy money because you never learned
how to make an honest buck and you blew the millions you were given on hookers and blow, or whatever you kids do these days. Forget about suing. You never had a real job. You were compensated handsomely and you aren't responsible with money.
