BREAKING: Order Granting Preliminary Approval Dryer vs NFL Films

Apr 8, 2013

THIS JUST IN: An Order Granting Preliminary Approval in the  Dryer vs NFL Films suit has just been filed in the District Court of Minnesota. Note the new, l-o-n-g list of Plaintiffs in this filing. We now know that the original Plaintiffs were never consulted nor informed of discussions or negotiations. And worse still, many of the newly-listed Plaintiffs had also never even granted permission to have their names added to the Plaintiff’s list on this Preliminary Settlement! And THAT’S the difference between honest lawyers fighting for their clients in an open courtroom and dishonest lawyers looking to make a quick buck at the expense of their clients in backroom dealings. If you DON’T want to have this happen to your concussion lawsuit, you may want to consider changing law firms NOW!
Now that the gag order has finally been lifted, this will definitely be an open discussion at our upcoming 2013 IFV Conference in Las Vegas May 3 – 5. Be sure to book your flights and hotel rooms nowClick HERE!

    It appears that the NFL is posturing in the LICENSING case to set a “common good settlement precedent” for all of their past history of fraud and negligence as a response and in attempts to settle their ex-player plaintiff lawsuits. This is not a good thing and certainly has the appearance of a continuing chain of defendant-court-judge legal collusion that I certainly hope can be broken and not carried over to the CONCUSSION case.

    Even the judge seems to be ramming the so-called SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT DOWN THE PLAINTIFFS THROATS.

    Again the system fails players!

    The only folks that are going to get anything out of this lawsuit are the ones that have lined up against the majority of the Class… Mix, Brown, et al. They’re forming a system that will only provide the HOF’ers with any money for their likeness and the “FUND” will have little to no effect for retirees. Again, the NFL has paid lip service to retired players and a slush fund to keep our mouths shut while they fight us in trial over our brain trauma issues.

    I left the NFL Alumni Board of Directors for exactly this reason. They keep paying a few of us to keep our mouths shut and we keep letting them!

    If all the retired players don’t see the writing on the wall, many must be blind. These people – the lawyers and the judge – see us as what amounts to second class citizens. They treat us as though we can’t think for ourselves. They’re right in our faces showing us how insignificant they think we are. It’s like the members of Congress knowing that 90% of Americans want stricter background checks for purchasing a gun by voting not to be considered.

    This is a Screw You Moment.

    I have read the comments and I agree with each assessment. I would like to add taxation without positive representation for the injured parties is a part of Congressional history. The Art of Boxing is getting your opponent to assist you in his own destruction. The injured players are being victimized twice. The Almighty Judge will enter the proper solutions for all persons involved in this travesty of injustice to the injured players suffering from mistreatment by many persons on the high school, University and Professional Athletic levels with little to no benefits going directly to the player or his family for their labor of love and support.
