    Thank you for the information Dave. Well most of us expected these shenanigans when we first entered into the lawsuit and added our names. 5yrs later we still waiting. I expect it’ll take 5 more years to get any monetary award in our pockets. But I’m hopeful.

    Thanks for sharing Dave!
    Unfortunately, reading this article reminded me of a couple of my favorite lines, from the iconic western “The Outlaw Josey Wales”. The first quote is “don’t piss down my back and tell me its raining”. But that’s exactly what the NFL repeatedly does to its former players. And to a certain extent, its current charges. Each spring during the NFL Draft, they trot out numerous former players(some are former teammates). To promote an appearance of unity between league and its former members. I don’t begrudge those men that are representing their respective clubs. I am, however, sickened to my stomach each time the commissioner embraces draftees in a bear hug. Knowing full well, a players quality of life after the game is far down on his list of priorities.

    To those who say, “you knew the risk”. You’re damn right we did! The league is well aware of the risk as well. Why else would they have resources in place, such as the “NFL Player Disability Plan”. Mind you, they do everything in their power to deny you the benefit of those resources. As a matter of fact, they penalize you.

    For instance, some of Pre ’93ers received an early benefit payment. As a result, players incurred a 25% reduction of their pension. Additionally, if you happen to qualify for a disability payment, you’re in for a big surprise. Unbelievably, the league decreases that payment by 25% as well, because of the early benefit payout. They double dip! The 25% deduction, in most case is more than three times the initial early benefit payment the player received.

    That leads me to the second quote from “The Outlaw Josey Wales”: “whipped ’em again Josey”! The league has been consistently whipping its former players. Whether its erecting barriers to disability benefits, not disclosing concussion research, or obstructing claims re: concussion settlement.

    After digesting the above article, the only conclusion is, the NFL whipped its former players again!

    Pay now or pay later and if you understood what comes later you would pay now with interest

    I tried to tell you guys. That is why I am 1 of the 240 retired players who opted out of the settlement. My case will set precedent to open the door again for retired players.
