At my job you have to sign a contract just to work here, stating that if you are hurt on the job or have and long term injuries after employment because of work assignments that the company is not liable. NFL implement the same thing and we can go back to some hard hitting.
I understand, and its no different than any other dangerous job. Growing up around the refineries its the same way, but when that refinery fails to provide safety to their employees it still opens them up to litigation if one of their employees gets injured or dies.
