The courts in the Dryer vs NFL Films lawsuit could not have done a better job of making a bad situation worse by enabling the NFL and its crew of lawyers to muddy up the waters even more by allowing them more bites at a rotten apple while completely trampling the rights of the class. Here are two letters that were officially filed with the Minneapolis Court from retired players Ken Clarke (1978 – 1991 Vikings, Seahawks, Eagles) and Bill Bain (1975 – 1986 Packers, Broncos, Rams) rescinding their Opt Out Opt Out forms that caused intentional confusion for many others as well. What part of I Opted Out does anyone NOT understand? Wonder how many guys the NFL and its lawyers actually managed to con?

    This really is getting confusing. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Court is also confused – if not just disappointed – that so many guys have opted out of Dryer vs NF Films that the next move will be to delay the proceedings once again to appoint an independent Special Master or guardian ad litem to contact all the guys who have opted out to see if they need a mental evaluation to determine whether they have the mental capacity to understand their rights.

    I hope someone is taking detailed notes. This is all going to make a fascinating read once it’s all sorted out.

    What a confusing mess!

    An Opt Out of the Opt Out of the Opt Out to Opt Out….

    I am not sure many retired players even know what this is.

    I know I’m thoroughly confused.

    I have no idea if I opted out or signed the latest letter withdrawing my opt out. Can someone please let me know if I’m opted out or opted in. If I am opted back in, I assume I need to opt back out. Is that correct?
