NFL Sideline Concussion Assessment Test

Feb 2, 2013

How Many Fingers?
The NFL released its Official Sideline Concussion Assessment Test last year. After looking at this test, how many of you retired players out there might realize that you probably went off the charts with some of those hits you sustained years ago?

    What about those smelling salts they used to give us? I wonder if they had any effects also. We’ve all heard about bath salts in the news by now. So what about the aftereffects of those clear-your-cobwebs smelling salts?

    The NFL has brought it on themselves because of their continued GREED!

    If the NFL would have only allowed their injured players access to their earned disability benefits for broken backs, necks, hips, knees, etc. they would not find themselves in the same position as the tobacco companies.

    But their attitude and actions have always been delay, deny and wait for us to die. All of us pre-1993 players have been scammed the worst. And remember: The only difference between scam and scum is a vowel.

    Here’s an article that just came out on Super Bowl Sunday February 3, 2013 from China. China!?? Seems like EVERYONE is talking about the NFL’s REAL concussion problem around the world… Everyone except the NFL, that is!

    Fellow Retired Players:

    I have to laugh at the latest remarks made by the Commish regarding his plan on head injury and helmets. First, here is a guy who was born blue-blooded and through connections, placed in a spot to earn millions as the leader of the greatest protected monopoly in this country …the NFL. His remarks that we need smaller, lighter helmets must have Dr. Amen and his staff in a bizarre state of disbelief. It’s been proven the helmet protects the head and not the brain. He can show this to a group of kids and they would get the gist of such a foolish statement. Now the kicker… all of you who have issues from head slaps, concussions, dings – however they define them today – do you realize that he will have a study to see if your DNA was predisposed for you to have brain damage even before you played? You were born and destined to have brain issues. I guess the NFL will never have any liability. I remember as a kid watching Mr. Wizard and was in awe of all the things he could do in simple science. How does this man think he has the basic knowledge to even discuss such a stupid premise? I am surprised that someone has not taken this information and created a cartoon.

    Also, if you are trying to get comp in California and have been out of the game for years: You may have to hurry with any action. California is changing the rules with a new bill being considered by the legislature. I’m surprised because it’s such a liberal state giving millions to illegals hurt on jobs but for some reason because some big name players got settlements, we’re all accused of dipping!

    Good Luck to all…
