Heart disease caused former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Norman Hand's death

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; NFL shouldn't be Liable. No one sues model agencies when their models are bulemic(sp) and anorexic(sp). NFL shouldn't be liable for concussions either unless players are cleared to play and actually should not have been....

Re: Heart disease caused former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Norman Hand's death

I'm going to sue my former employer. I'm not sure why, but I've only just started thinking about it. I'll come up with something though. I'll keep you guys posted. LOL


Ahhh....that was fast. I've got it. My former employer provided free lunch every day, and as a result I gained 15 pounds. Is there a lawyer in da house?

Re: Heart disease caused former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Norman Hand's death

I think that we will see more 300+ pounders having health troubles related to their size. Two-a-days have a way of keeping many weight problems in check. Very few guys are going to keep that kind of regiment after they hang-up their cleats, and very few are going to be satisfied with just 1/2 a chicken or 2 pounds of salad. These guys seem to get bigger and faster every year. I wounder what the stats are on post NFL weight gain, especially for the heavy weights. I was 187 seemed for ever...til I turned 35, now I'm 50 and 230. I hope these guys take stock and do what they can to live a long time after retirement and enjoy some of that money.
