NFL = glorified violence?
 
"Former NFL players trying to sue the league over concussion-linked injuries argued in court Tuesday that the NFL "glorified" violence and profited from damaging hits to the head."

I'm sure a whole lot of defensive players marketed their violence to sell jerseys and videos too.

It is glorified......but come on, we've got a lawyer running the league.........it's not that violent. Have you watched MMA? Now that is a violent sport that could leave you a vegetable. :broccoli:

Yes sports shows and until very recently, the NFl has promoted big hits during ads to increase ratings

No players can't sue the Nfl since the vast majority of them have been running head first into opposing players since they were about ten years old

Maybe I can sue every job I've had since high school and get some cash for the stress they put me through.

I understand they paved the way for the current NFL and I do believe they should receive some sort of retirement plan, but suing is not the solution.

Wow! So they go into the game voluntarily. Knew what the sport was about. They even got paid. Then they complain.
