NFL concussion book ‘League of Denial’ being adapted into TV movie

 

In the wake of the release of the book ‘League of Denial’, which charts, highlights and provides incriminating data suggesting the NFL never really cared about it’s players or the effects their game had on themconcussions have become something …

 

Too bad NFL because this book and TV movie will help to expose your GREED along with your total disregard for the players AND their families…………

 

Still NO word on the proposed concussion settlement. WHY? Could it be that the NFL is waiting for the off-season to air their dirty laundry? So much for the NFL promise of providing a quick settlement for retired players with critical and grave brain injuries. Another BROKEN promise. Or was it just another PR spin by the league?

 

You decide and make a comment…………

    EXPOSE THE LYING GREEDY BAST**** FOR WHAT THEY ARE.
    IT IS AN ABSOLUTE SHAME AND SHAM THAT THE NFL AND THE NFLPA HAVE TAKEN SUCH A “DENY, DELAY AND HOPE THEY DIE” HARD LINE STAND AGAINST RETIREES. BOTH GROUPS CONSTANTLY CRAVE THE PUBLIC’S APPROVAL, ATTENTION AND ADORATION. THE LAWSUITS AND WASTED LEGAL FEES AND BAD PR COULD HAVE ALL BEEN AVOIDED WITH 25 OR 30% PER CENT OF THE PISSED AWAY MONEY BEING ALLOCATED TO THE OLDER RETIRED PLAYERS AND SOME BENEFITS PAID DIRECTLY TO THEM INSTEAD OF ALL OF THESE PHONY CHARITIES.

    Why can’t the NFL make some sort of announcement regarding the proposed settlement? I believe we were told there would be some approval by the judge about 3 months ago? Well, we are all waiting………for action, answers with explanations as to how each of us will be affected. Meanwhile , the NFL and NFLPA continue to represent the active players. The people that work in NFLPA never have and never will represent former players. How does the league and union get away with the injustices they have done? Sad and appalling.

    It’s a joke! There not going to do anything for retired players,they’ll just keep blowing smoke and talk about all there doing for former players, hoping the public keeps buying it! Guys might get some help when there wearing a diaper, and babbling about nothing cause they don’t know who they are! And the league and union will step up and say look what were doing to help the poor bast****! I’ve had enough, I don’t expect any help, and frankly don’t care if I ever get any. I’ll do whatever I can, take and try whatever I have to to feel better! Hope the show helps, always wishful thinking?

    Something seems to be holding up the final details of the concussion settlement. I ask myself what? Could it be the NFL is rethinking the agreement because of the recent Kansas City concussion lawsuit?

    The Kansas City lawsuit is unique and potentially more dangerous in exposing the NFL to the discovery of a cover-up smoking gun than the class action lawsuit just settled. And, I believe the KC attorneys publically mentioned discovery of a possible cover-up as a prime motive for their lawsuit. I don’t think the KC attorneys are in this fight for retired player coupons; I sense a deeper moral commitment, call me crazy! Lots of assumptions and speculations, but, if I was the NFL I would be asking if it was prudent to pay $765M to retired players in exchange for no cover-up discovery knowing the KC lawsuit will once again put them right back at risk; the NFL is no longer getting their key underlying interest met through this settlement, their deal has been duplicated by a gang of Chiefs!

    I thought the timing of the KC lawsuit is interesting. Why file the case after the concussion settlement but before the final details are worked out? They could have waited or probably filed before any settlement but they did neither. They waited until after the NFL went public in grand Goodell style yet filed before the deal was finalized. Why?

    Hypothetically, let’s say two things are true (1) the key interest of the NFL is to prevent discovery of a smoking gun cover-up (2) the KC lawsuit renews the smoking gun risk inspite of the recent concussion settlement. The 11th hour filing of the KC lawsuit puts the NFL is an awkward position. If they finalize the settlement they don’t get enough for their $765M because cover-up risks are still in play and if they walk from the settlement they look foolish, unorganized, and irresponsible to retired players suffering from seriously degraded lives. Could it be the NFL has been trapped, hence the delay in announcing the final terms of settlement?

    Opt-out anyone? Many interesting possibilities and your guess is as good as mine but something is going on, maybe in KC – time will tell.

    Disclosure, I’ve been unfocused regarding retired player events taking care of family issues. If my facts are off I apologize. It’s been fun playing with a few ideas!

    Dave I think it’s wonderful . The more people know how much suffering is caused by the players and family’s is a great way to continue teaching people about the good and bad about this whole situation . I can’t imagine how much everyone is struggling out there and it breaks my heart .
