Think of the football players who were taken from the college ranks into the big shoes, making tons of money. After their playing careers, they and their families are suing the league that gave them everything. That's a crime.
If the lawsuits continue, football will no longer be the sport of kings. Maybe those players should consider being iron workers, masons, boilermakers, carpenters or coal miners. Many of those workers, don't have brain injuries, nor are they are killed on the jobs. And they don't make millions of dollars, like playing this great national sport.
Many old timers were injured, having bad knees, broken bones and worse. These were men among the past generation who would take what came, good or bad. I have the greatest respect for them.
Maybe the complainers could become lawyers, doctors or Wall Streeters if they have the brains. If not, Burger King, Walmart or the city will give you a shot at a much lower pay scale.
