Rickey Jackson & Vaughn Johnson suing NFL
The news out of New Orleans continues to roll in. The penalties and focus on the Saintsí bounty system is linked to the lawsuits that the NFL is facing from over a thousand former players over head injuries. Now, two members of the most famous Saintsí unit have joined in yet another suit as named plaintiffs. Rickey Jackson, recently inducted in the Hall of Fame, and Vaughan Johnson were both members of the feared Dome Patrol. That case was filed in the Eastern District of Louisiana as a class action, and also includes former Chiefs safety Gary Barbaro as another named plaintiff.

Well, I can't wait right in the middle of the NFL season a judge decides to halt the season because he deems it to dangerous for the players and are not allowed to start playing again unless the NFL can show that it is safe for the players!!!!!

Thats odd, I'd imagine there are numerous players that would like to sue Jackson and Johnson for all the concussions they dished out.

If I am an ex Saint player I am thinking...

"So the NFL wants to drop hammers, dismantle my team, hurt the franchise? Fine I am going to retaliate on the NFL".

Law Suit filed.

Jackson only missed 2 games and he wanted to play....Mora held him out 'cause his jaw was wired from a car wreck. He must be helping Vaughn. Where's Swilling?

I encourage them all to file suit. Screw the NFL. You know what they say. What goes around comes around Roger. I hope you destroyed the NFL. We've still got Boxing and some other non CS sports. I hate to see it because I LOVE FOOTBALL but you and the rest of those overblown fat cats deserve it.
