    We can only hope. The cool thing is that the owners don't figure to see any profit for the next ten years. Those billion dollar franchises are going to become affordable real quick, and these owners will take what's left of Halas and Mara's and Hunt's hard earned cash and head for the hills. This is easily the worst group of owners that ever controlled the NFL, and we have a chance to get rid of them. Anyone that replaces them is an upgrade. Maybe one day the league will be publically traded. In any event, the owners did it to themselves and it should ultimately be good for the game.

    The Seau family is suing the NFL & blaming the hits / NFL for his death. Curious on folks thoughts on this topic. Do they have a good case here or are the lawyers just going to get rich ? Thoughts.....
    Disgusting. Blaming the NFL for his problems.

    So the millions of dollars that the NFL gave this man and family to play a ****ing game isn't good enough.

    Guess what people...
    Coffee is hot
    Haunted Houses are scary
    and you can sustain head injuries playing in the NFL

    I'm sure every person is already aware of these things and I'm sure the NFL has something in place to protect themselves if a player sustains a long-term injury, but hey if you can sue, why not?

    It would not surprise me if they won. Winning in the court of law is obviously a subjective term. NFL might just do an out of court settlement even if they don't deserve it.

    Football players assume a risk when they decide to participate. If, however, the extent of that risk greater than they knew, was known by the NFL, and not disclosed to the players, that may be a different matter.
    I'm going to list ALEC in credits as associate producer of creating horrifying things for us to talk about -John Oliver

    People who think the least powerful members of society are responsible for most of its problems are deluded, at best.

    Because he didn't think it would give him a brain injury that would kill him. He didn't know, or he would undoubtedly have quit. The question here is not what Junior Seau knew, it's what the NFL knew and possibly should have told its players.

    thats not the case. anyone who didn;t think major and serious injuries could possibly results fromt he equivalent of running into brick walls for a living is plan stupid. these injuries are far from unforeseeable. maybe the speicifc injury, but not the seriousness of them

    I hate stupid crap like this. You can dedicate your life to religion, stopping world hunger, trying to achieve world peace...

    Playing a game to earn tons of money, be in the top 1% and get lots of women isn't a high and mighty cause you can dedicate your life to.

    Any football player who doesn't know they can die on the field in any given game is ******** and incapable of caring for themselves and their own matters.

    Put up a "play at your own risk" sign in each locker room and we're good to go.

    Right. This case was just a nuisance to the NFL when it was grown men knowing what they were getting into.

    Then Goodell accused the Saints of running a bounty system for three years before the league stepped in, then he made that stupid statement about how they are going to change what was a "culture of violence" in the NFL, then he expanded his investigation to the Skins and Bills before the league's legal dept. jumped up an said there never was an expanded investigation. It's pretty tough for the NFL to defend against lawsuits when their own commissioner is stipulating that the league knew about and never did anything about criminal enterprises to injure unsuspecting players.

    The injury cases jumped from 3 to 300 to now over 3000 since then. I don't even list those things when I'm adding up the blunders Goodell has made because I think it's more reflective of the blunder the owners made when they chose that idiot for commissioner.
