Default Heisman winner, Hall of Famer player Campbell says NFL should do more

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The sleek black Mercedes whipped into valet parking. Anyone expecting the driver to get out of the car with the same grace and style was in for a shock.

With the aid of the valet, Earl Campbell slowly emerged.
Quote:
"That was the biggest, baddest big man running I ever saw," said Tony Dorsett, who won the Heisman at Pitt in 1976, a year before Campbell did. Campbell considers Dorsett his best friend among the Heisman winners.

"But it doesn't matter how big and strong you are," Dorsett said. "Over a period of time, the game wins."

Even Dorsett, who looks fits and trim at 53, says he has aches and pains and occasional numbness in his hands he attributes to leftovers from his days in football.

The game clearly takes a different toll on different players

I've heard good points from both sides of this issue, but I still think the NFL should do something to help these guys with medical issues. Playing football is different than other industries in many ways, and I do not think it's too much to ask to help out those that sacrified their bodies for the game in years past.

Much the same way I feel about our military veterans, except I think we need to do a lot more to help out our old warriors.

Default Hall of Famer, Player Campbell Says NFL Should do More

Thought I brought this article up before I left for church. I'll post it again.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but the Man IS a TEXAN!

June 30, 2007

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The sleek black Mercedes whipped into valet parking. Anyone expecting the driver to get out of the car with the same grace and style was in for a shock.

With the aid of the valet, Earl Campbell slowly emerged.

Left foot first, right foot next. Once they were both solidly on the ground, the Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall of Famer grabbed his walker with both hands and shuffled with bent back and crooked knees toward the door of the Barton Creek Resort.

Campbell was being honored this weekend by the Heisman Winners Association, a gathering to raise money for charity and toast the former Texas Longhorn 30 years after he won college sports' most prestigious individual trophy...(cont)

Congress is supposed to be holding hearings on this issue.

Check out this link though...

Quote:
The attorney who helped the estate of late Pittsburgh Steelers center Mike Webster win a 2005 pension victory filed suit in Baltimore yesterday on behalf of former Houston Texans offensive lineman Ben Lynch.

The suit was not filed against the NFL itself, but rather the league's retirement and disability plan.
