And the Wrights’ Grandkids Love Their New Air Conditioner!

Aug 1, 2011

Thanks again to the good folks at Gridiron Greats for providing a new air conditioning system for Glendora and Gordon Wright who were facing another incredibly hot Summer and Fall in Orlando Florida!

We are also in the process of taking all the donations that have come in to our nonprofit, Independent Football Veterans, on behalf of the Wrights and expect to pass along your generosity to the Wrights later this week! But this is just one more reminder of why retired football players need to stick together and fight for a voice to gain control and access to your earned disability and pension benefits. As a pre-’93 player, Gordon doesn’t qualify for any disability or pension benefits since he didn’t play for four seasons. With early onset dementia, Gordon also doesn’t qualify for the NFL’s 88 Plan either.
.
If you haven’t already added your name to the growing list of teammates who are demanding a voice of your own, please do it now! And be sure to remind every retired player you know. Thanks!

    Great work, Shannon and Jeff at GGAF! Great job, Dave and Robert, and everyone who contributed.

    However, I have to wonder: With the brutal heat we’re having this summer, just how many other former NFL players can’t keep the A/C on because their pensions (or lack thereof) are insufficient to pay the power bills?
