Closer to $100k after lawyers fees "if" it was a cash award, and if it was punitive then it is taxed as income.


"According to the agreement, NFL and NFL Properties will contribute $765 million to provide medical benefits and injury compensation for retired players, fund medical and safety research and cover litigation expenses."

They will get a small pay out and benefits.

According to Kevin Mawae (Former player as you know and LEESVILLE, LA product!) the NFL projects 2025 revenue at 27 BILLION.

Re: NFL Reaches Settlement in Concussion Suit

Guys they are paying this out little by little. Each team pays something lime 1.2 million a year.

Over the life of the 700+ million the NFL. Is expected to make 10's of BILLIONS. The league & the teams are getting off cheaply.

WELL GOOD! The last thing I want is the NFL to lose money. Because guess what? My tickets would go up. Or they might start moving again. Or charge PSL's.

That math doesn't add up for me.

$765,000,000/4500 players = $170,000

That looks like a very low number to me. I think the NFL dodged a bullet here.

There should be criminal charges if Rodger knew...

Karma is a B***H, Rodge...

And they're (League) getting off cheap...
