Two Former Tigers leading the charge: Ex-NFL players file formal objection


quote:

The players who filed the objection to the proposed settlement include Sean Morey, a special teams player who played for five teams between 1999 and 2010; Alan Faneca, an offensive lineman who played 13 seasons mostly with the Steelers between 1998 and 2010; Ben Hamilton, an offensive lineman who played for two teams between 2001 and 2010; Robert Royal, a tight end who played for three teams between 2002 and 2010; Rock Cartwright, a fullback and kick returner who played for two teams between 2002 and 2011; Jeff Rohrer, an outside linebacker who played for the Cowboys between 1982 and 1989; and, Sean Considine, a strong safety who played for five teams between 2005 and 2012.


quote:

Although all seven of the players already are suffering from the effects of concussion-caused brain injury, including episodic depression, sleep disorders, mood and personality changes, and attention and concentration deficits, none of the them would qualify for awards of compensation under the terms of the revised settlement that was announced on June 25. Because their conditions have not yet deteriorated into chronic traumatic encephalopathy, they would collect nothing under the proposal, according to Molo.

I feel bad football players are having issues. But they knew football was a game that you could get injured playing. They should get nothing.

Not something to be proud of IMO. Just chasing down money because of the lack of personal responsibility. To think football couldn't cause long term issues is short sighted at best.

Typical that a bunch of ignoramus yahoos would side with the rich organization. Very common amongst white southerners to support an organization that doesnt even pay taxes but then criticize the poor for welfare.

Do any of you have the same view towards people that willingly join the military? They knew it was dangerous but they have some help.

Funny of you jackasses to watch, from the safety of your couch, and be entertained by people hitting each other then claiming that they dont deserve to get any help from healthcare. What if players decided to quit playing bc of health risks? Would you change your mind?

At the very least, the NFL should have a program that researches the condition and allows free treatment for all former players. That way, no one gets money but people are taken care of.

Wait...what? When did this become about politics? Even though you're obviously a liberal

When we started talking about an organization that pays zero in taxes yet is hesitant to take care of its own reason for success (the players) Typically these things are acceptable, for some reason, to many southern white people who call themselves "conservatives." I find people who call themselves "liberal" to be frustrating as well. Im just a human being that can make independent decisions without having to check in with whichever party line tells me what to think. Is that so hard to believe?

Welfare is an elite-established institution that is in place to keep the very poor dependent instead of trying to rise up or riot. I dont like it either but neither party will touch it. You will see, however, republican candidates use it to rile people up.

Not sure why you think a fact is playing the race card. The fact that you interpreted it that way makes it seem more like YOU are the one thinking about race. I think most southern white conservatives side with the top 1% against their own best interests. They also get angry about welfare as if it will change. Im sorry if these truths upset you but there is no race agenda here

Go wave your flag and blow your protection smoke up someone else's ass. The reason our troops get sent places is for a bank roll for someone else's pocket, who also wont pay taxes. Its an even bigger injustice that kbr or lockheed, ge, military industrial complex..etc, make money off of men who make jack shite. Hmmm. I guess you're right. Bad comparison bc this is an even bigger problem. Thanks

The players receive good money but the league and owners make much more. They can afford to pour money into research and treatment for head injuries. How you can argue against that is beyond me...and probably beyond you

Hey Psycho. Take your racists hate ramblings somewhere else idiot. This is a place for Tiger fans to talk. Not listen to some idiot stuck in the 1960's who doesnt understand that these people willfully played football. No one forced them to.

Today's players know all the risks. What percentage of current players are choosing not to sign up or quit?

If someone knows smoking causes cancer as they choose to smoke should they also get a check? If someone knows a seatbelt can save their life but chooses to not wear it and dies in a wreck should thier family get a check? Personal accountability is gone in the minds of liberal fricks like yourself.

The question is not if the players knew they could get injured. The question is if the NFL owners know about concussion effects and if they should have made a rule change to mollify the damage. The facts seem to show that they did identify the problem through research but never did anything to implement a solution. NFL is liable.

BS. That's only true if the alternative it better for their interests. Unfortunately it is not. The liberal vote-buyers are buying their votes on the backs of the working middle class. Sure the top 1% are greedy. They always find a way to pass their "burden" onto the middle class. So taxing the rich to benefit the poor is too simplistic. There is way too much wealth concentrated into the portfolios of the top 1%, no doubt. If we want to up their contribution, let's find a way to make it stick. Also, the liberals, if they were truly for helping the poor, would find more incentives for them to break free from government dependence. Instead, the only incentives they are enabling are to vote Democrat.

PS, I don't side with the NFL on this stuff. They are trying to minimize their exposure, instead of helping the guys who helped to build their brand.
