Re: Former Giants player attacks Drew Brees for Saints QB's comments about retired players

The old players of the 1970's and back did make the NFL. Laid the foundation for it is today. The big week long SB , a major tax/income revunue for a host city, the players huge salaries and even for those who earn a few hundred thousand, and more are because of these 1970's and back players.

I agree they built the NFL and built the teams on which they played.

I agree the big money like today was not there even for the best players and I mean those who broke records.
Saints' Dempsey is a good example.
The list is a long one of all those good , old players.

NFL and their union has to provide for these players in these player's pensions for what they earned. What they earned , they earned, and what they did not earn, they din't. Pretty simple. What they earned and if they still have their money in the NFL, it is theirs. Simple. Yeah, some took theirs and so oh well, they don't have this money .
Simple again.

For those players who took their money, sqaundered their money, did not get real jobs after the NFL days, oh well.
Their jobs are really the same as yours and mine .
If you are a school teacher , RN, etc. today, you earn far more than those of the 1970's, 1960s.
Those pensions of those people are what they have and are good for them to live on.
Even now, many of these NFL players who made big money, huge , millions during the 1980 and up now, are broke. Ask Terrel Owens. Bernie Kosar -broke.
Living with no budget, wrong life choices =broke.

Brees ' statement was on point.

Now, I do think NFL and the Player's union should be able to do something in medical care for those who had tramatic brain injury due to the sport . That is fact of what happened and the NFL is and has made new rules, better equipment to prevent as best possible this injury for players today .

Re: Former Giants player attacks Drew Brees for Saints QB's comments about retired players

If my daughter makes a decision to jump from couch to couch and falls and gets hurt, she's made a choice to do something with a risk and got injured because of it. She knew that she might get hurt while pretending to be a trapeze artist. I always tell her that decisions have consequences. She knows this at six years of age.

At six years old, she also knows that it would be asinine to ask me for money because she stopped using diapers three years ago.

Drew was just stating the obvious. What's wrong with that?
