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

Re: NFL = glorified violence?

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.
These NFL players are a bunch of wussies!!!

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

Re: NFL = glorified violence?

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.
