2000 NFL players are suing their former employer, alleging that the NFL failed to address neurological risks associated with the sport. You mean, running as fast as you can and slamming into another person doesn’t lead to the possibility of concussions and other head traumas? In other news, 1000s sue the U.S. government, alleging that they were not informed that by signing up, they might be sent into a war where they might get shot. In other news, 1000s sue car manufacturer, alleging that they were not informed that if they drink and/or text while driving, they may wrap that car around a tree. In other news, 2000 NFL players waived their right to sue when they signed a contract to make millions of dollars to play a game that millions of people play for free in the middle of the street.
They all damn well knew what they were signing up for, and if you asked any of them when they were in their early 20s if they would give it up if it meant potential long term head traumas, they all would have probably said they will buy a cure for it later on. The idea that these 2000 NFL players were that naive to think that slamming their heads together was a good idea for the long term then, now wonder why they are all crazy today – crazy to think that they deserve any sort of settlement from the NFL. I mean, you wear a fucking helmet for a reason. This is the same reason a chemist wheres gloves and goggles – just in case some chemical splashes upward.
If the NFL had something to hide, they would have made you all play without pads and helmets. They wouldn’t spend millions on facilities and trainers and cortisone shots laced with who knows what other pain killers you all are addicted to, all in the name of stats which lead to your larger checks. Nobody told you to drop out of college your sophomore year to enter the draft. Your decision to play football is just that… your choice. And the repercussions of this choice is long term mental illness. And, if you have a problem with that, well then, you should have learned that money doesn’t buy happiness, and you can now go kill yourself!
