Is It Just an NFL Crisis?

Dec 19, 2013

An update from ABC This Week on Football’s Concussion Crisis – with a Who’s Who guest list:

 

 

IF the NFL does not begin to provide real compensation to retired players and their families for their brain injuries they received playing in the NFL then football has NO future. No more illusionary benefits. We don’t want charity! We are seeking restitution from the league for concealing the dangers of repeated blows to the head. Justice now for retired players!

    Good journalism by ABC! These are the facts: Retired NFL players will get $800 million A YEAR for 20 Years, because it is easy to prove the causation of playing football equates to tau protein build-up or tauopathy or CTE, a form of dementia. A reasonable person could easily conclude this! Tau Protein deposits have been researched and measured using ELISA kits since 1993. Put 2 and 2 together and it is easy before a jury.
    The NFL can bring 10 scientist, we can get the opinions of 1,000 national and international doctors that overwhelmingly agree concerning the reality of tau protein deposits or the “spots” the neurologist was speaking of in the video. IT IS A SCIENTIFIC FACT and some people or scientist are “playing dumb”, to stall. Check my facts.
