Some bits-and-pieces of information that have come in, starting with an interesting observation from disability attorney John Hogan (if anyone has heard anything about these reps on disability improvements, please feel free to let us know):
Article 61, Sec. 5 of the new CBA, which became effective over a year ago, provided for “further disability improvements” and that each side would appoint representatives not later than October 31, 2011 to consider these further improvements. I have no idea who was appointed and I have no idea if they have even met. Perhaps more importantly, no one we know has heard from ANY retired player who might have been consulted on what further improvements are needed.
At Sean Pamphilon’s movie preview in Pittsburgh last week, Dave also had the opportunity to spend a bit of time with Leonard Marshall (1983 – 1994: New York Giants, New York Jets, Washington Redskins). Leonard’s book When the Cheering Stops: Bill Parcells, the 1990 New York Giants, and the Price of Greatness (co-authored with journalist William Bendetson) was released this past spring and provides a unique inside view of football from his days on the field interwoven with intimate stories about life after the game off the field. Here are two of Leonard’s interviews from last spring:

    DavePear.com was originally started because of the current disability debacle in the NFL with the Bell/Rozelle Disability Board.

    NOBODY on the board is qualified to vote. NOBODY!

    NO ONE on the Board understands disability law nor the vocational aspect of disability which is completely missing. The Bell/Rozelle Disability board continues to be illegal and violates ERISA law even as the Groom Law Group continues to direct this illegal scam against disabled retired players and be paid a fortune. This plan had been extremely harsh for the pre-1993 retired players and the league is simply waiting for each of us to die off one-by-one.

    A US Department of Labor audit would expose this ongoing FRAUD.

    Just ask disability attorney John Hogan with over 35 years of experience to explain this swindle.

    Thanks, John, for ALL the valuable insight into this ongoing scam.

    No more studies – we demand justice NOW!
