I have a bad feeling

So when will Muhammad Ali sue for the neurological brain damage he has from taking all those shots to the head during his boxing career?

I guess nobody told him that was bad for him?

They will mandate Mark Kelso's helmet before they let the sport die.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this in high school and collegiate ball in the next 2 or 3 years.

Someone with a lot more legal acumen will have to explain to me how the NFL or the Bucs are responsible for a condition that, if its football related, is likely the result of a lifetime of behavior. if you figure 3 years of Pop Warner ball followed by 2 years of JV, 2 years varsity high school, 3-4 years of NCAA ball, and 2 more at the top - it seems to me to be a hard case to make that the NFL or the Bucs are very culpable.

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.

And that the vast majority of NFL alumni are physically fine. At least upstairs...

This is just one of a growing number of lawsuits, this one has 127 players. Where they smell blood(money), you will find all of a sudden, that they are "not" fine.

I feel sorry for him and all. But this subject has been brought up before. I'm going to say this again like I had in the past. These players have no right to sue the NFL for what happens on the field. These guys get paid millions every year and upon that get great medical benefits from the NFL as well. But yet they want to sue because of the head injuries. Smh!! From day one when they started playing in the NFL that they new how dangerous this game would be. So again they should have no right to sue. Do you see our men and women who get hurt over seas on the battle field come back home and sue the U.S. Government for their injuries? No they don't. This is just spoiled rich ass players gone broke and now trying to get more out of the NFL. Sorry but this will never hold up in court one bit. Screw these greedy losers.

The lawsuit will hinge on whether the Bucs and NFl misled the players by minimizing the risks. They have to show that the NFL was negligent. That is a tall order at this point considering much of the information about this is very recent. Plus they have to show that the NFl play caused the damage rather than just contributed with the majority caused by other factors.

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 was thinking of posting the same thing before I saw this.

It is a dangerous sport, that is why they get paid a handsome amount of money, even the 3rd stringers and practice squads.

What about HS and College. All going to get by because they sign waivers? You have no idea how many people from around the country will join lawsuits agains the "government" by suing schools at some point.

Like I said before, some schools already discussing the stoppage of football programs due to injury. If High Schools and Colleges are impacted, you know the NFL will suffer also.

Too popular, too much money involved. Football will not go down.

If they still let people wrestle in the WWe then the NFL is safe. A wrestler or past wrestler dies every week....
