    While I feel bad for any ex-player that may be currently suffering from neurological problems I can't help but think that they were very well paid, knew of the dangers, and were eager to get back on the field as soon as possible. This seems like a bunch of veteran players with money issues looking for another pay check because they see that their's alot more money in the NFL today than when they played and they found an unscrupulous lawyer to file for them.

    i'd say it's more that there's a bunch of veteran players who are seeing double vision and can't remember their phone numbers. the players actually DIDN'T really know about the inherent dangers, as the NFL lied to the players about it, and that's what this lawsuit is about.
