Otherwise they can turn down the millions of dollars and go teach PE with their degrees they got for free.

This is a pattern of behavior that Mr Sears dedicated his life to long before the NFL or the Bucs were anything more than a dream to him.

if minor changes can be made to make the game safer and reduce the long term effects of the punishment these guys go through for our enjoyment then they should be made.
in spite of all the changes that have been made that people whine about on a daily basis, the game is still fun to watch.
there will be more changes made, i'm sure, to try and protect the players (and the league from lawsuits) but we'll all still be watching...at least most of us will be. the rest of you....meh.

These bullsh!t lawsuits will be dismissed. Soon, the NFL will make all the players sign waivers saying, "Yes I realize there is potential danger." Otherwise they can turn down the millions of dollars and go teach PE with their degrees they got for free.
I agree. I think we'll see a waiver system set up that makes potential players acknowledge the risks involved with playing pro football. But to think the game will shrivel up and die is ludicrous. The potential profits will outweigh the potential risks for most players. And for every player who is having difficulties now, I would be interested in knowing how many are not (as a percentage of all former players, I mean).

I guess you have heard the discussions about stopping some High Schools from having football as a sport?
We are headed down a tough path.
