I like that statement.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said any allegation that the league intentionally sought to mislead players is meritless.

''It stands in contrast to the league's actions to better protect players since Congress came down on our butts in 2009 and advance the science and medical understanding of the management and treatment of concussions,'' he said.
Fixed that one for you, NFL spokesblowhard.

When you sign up to play football, you know the risks of injury it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that this is a violent game. If you don't want to live the rest of your life as a vegetable then maybe you shouldn't have made your living off of this game.

I'm so sick and tired of hearing these ex-players complain about their medical problems after they have retired, I could be wrong but I don't think Gleason has signed on board with these lawsuits. If anyone would have a reason to sue it's him and I'm sure a few others. BUT for the most part it seems like ex-players that used up all their cash and now trying to bite the hand that feed them to cover their medical costs

I remember as a kid having a VCR tape that was named "The Top 100 Hits of NFL History" Number 1 was Chuck Bednarick almost decapitating Frank Gifford .... hypricrites

Yep......that about sums it up. I can't get over how much money these guys make, but are broke 2-5 years after they retire & filing for bankruptcy. Look at Brunell, T.O., & Warren Sapp!
