Yes this is over 1500 NFL players, including over 100 former professionals suing the NFL for allegedly hiding the dangers of concussions from them.
The list of players including former Atlanta Falcons Jamal Anderson, Chris Doleman, and O.J. Santiago are filing lawsuits and the latest filed in the US District Court
in Atlanta, says the NFL "repeatedly refuted the connection between concussions and brain injury.[url=http://www.buyusajerseys.com/][b]Nike NFL Jerseys Discount[/b]
Further claims also suggest the NFL didn't take the necessary steps to protect players from dangerous injuries. In fact they're accused of misleading the players about
the associated risks.
The NFL of course denies the allegations, saying they always prioritise player safety and would never intentionally mislead players about it.
Either way, people have a lot to say on the topic across the internet.

If you get in a car, you know the car has brakes but if they aren't good enough to stop your car and you wrap it around a tree, it's okay because you know.
You always know you can get in an accident if you drive and you takek the risk anyway.
I really wonder had each of the plaintiffs been advised when they began their careers what they can expect in life as a result of head trauma , how many of them would
have said, "who cares? I love the game... I love the money... I'll cross that bridge when I come to it." My guess is the same number of guys who continue to play today
with the same potential ahead of them.
However BlackGold5673 on msn fox sports again, has a different take on the matter:
I'm sick of cry baby spectators thinking just because a person makes a lot of money, they don't deserve the truth about health and welfare. The owners make money off
of these players at the cost of death or serious injury. It would seem like the owner would've made sure that a helmet was made reducing the risks.
NothingMan20 points out on the NBC sports website says:
All the current players saying "I don't care I'd still play" sure don't help their cause.
I have a college education and I need my employer to tell me if I keep banging my head against other people with hard objects on their head it might hurt me? If you
tell every NFL player on the rosters today they could get hurt playing they'd say fame, glory, and the money make it worthwhile. But once it's over - I'M GONNA

You strap on the helmet and you take the risk. They knew it when they signed the contract. Not the NFL's fault in my opinion.
I ran into former Vikings all pro defensive tackle Keith Millard over the weekend. Could barely walk but he didn't seem bitter. All part of the deal.
