Reggie williams may havve amputation

7 posts in this topic

Saw this about Reggie Williams, former LB for the  Bengals. After 24 surgeries, his knee is so mangled and disfigured his DR.s say he will eventually lose his leg.  Insurance doesn't cover his preexisting condition but he has done well after football as a VP of Disney.  This screams to the fact that there needs to be some level of disability benefits for retired players.

 

Here's the link (the pic of his knee is pretty graphic):

SAD, at least the owner of the Bengals should help pay for his treatment if not the 10 Billion a year NFL....  These guys need to be taken care of....

 

If I was a current player on the Bengals, I wouldnt want to play for that team anymore, I would hit the road as soon as my contract is up.

I saw that picture it looks like he tried to stop a car with his knee.

Maybe his college should pay. Or his high school. The problem is there are so many football players out there. You can't pay for all of them.

    • It is the off-season and winning online competitions is kinda our thing.   Let's see if we can't swing this thing.  The Pats need to go home.  We must fight the Evil League of Evil coalition. 
    •   So are you upset that Hillary lost and we stopped investigating her?  Or that in an alternate reality, Hillary won and no one is talking about Russia?  I'm trying to see your point, but alas, you might be too clever for me. Or are we back to it's not fair to expect Trump NOT to have Russian ties because of business interests?  Again, all Trump had to do was completely break from his companies, and he did not.  And we're seeing some serious Russian interests in Trump winning, and a lot of contact between Trump's campaign officials and advisers, which is good or bad? I'm not sure the point you're trying to make.  Is it "yay, Trump won so we can investigate Russian interference with the election and administration!"  Or is it "Boo, if Hillary won she wouldn't be investigated!" Hillary lost.  People came out for Trump in the rust belt. Now that people are looking at Trump, what he's said, what laws he's trying to pass, etc; a lot of information is coming out.  Is that bad?  Or is it just that the media is being unfair to Trump? Maybe I'm just not smart enough to get it.
    • I highly doubt this will upset anyone, unless they are trolling that is.
