    Yup you heard it here OVERPAID DRUG ADDICTS! glad my decision to quit watching the Felons League was a sound decision.
    I am sorry, but you either love a sport or you don't. Painkillers, performance enhancing drugs, strikes, etc. etc. etc. might irritate but for me it can never make me stop watching that sport. I am a cycling fan, a sport that has been hit like almost no other sport with performance enhancing drugs, but now with cleaner riders the love for the game is still strong.

    I love American Football a lot, it even comes close to soccer but I love watching the sport/playing fantasy football. And no amount of issues like this lawsuit or the head trauma issue will not stop me from watching it.

    I read an article a while back saying that the older players involved in the concussion law suit were unhappy with the amount of money they were getting out of the deal. I wonder if this new law suit has any connection???

    The players had the final decision making power, so they're mostly to blame

    Since about 1989 the NFL only drafts 20-25% White players..........only one White player that I can recall has started at RB in a generation.........and that was only because 4-5 affroletes in front of him got hurt......it can't get much more racist than that.

    It's basically a money-grab by ex-players who squandered their fortunes and self-abused their bodies without even the tiniest bit of sense that using that many painkillers may be bad, addictive, etc.

    The players can kiss my azzzzz. They knew all along popping pills is just that and if they did not know how come everyone else including every person reading this thread. The age of "blame everything and everybody but me" is disgusting. No one is responsible for themselves any more as we see constantly in the sports world junkies on ESPN when the player get busted for whatever it is never quite their own fault. Somehow they always deserve a another chance and another chance and another chance. Let's concern ourselves with our wounded veterans that are getting screwed by the country they fought for and now are dying because the VA hospital are refusing to treat them in a timely manner. To hell with the drug addict NFL punks that never spoke up until they learned they stand a chance to make money off their stupidity. God bless our troops and screw the NFL players.

    You won't find another fan of Football than I, but this recent money grab is disgusting and purely reflective of the litigious monster our country has become. Until we stop electing legislators that are lawyers we will continue to bow down to proper legal reform.

    Sickens me..

    Because of one position? Racism only exist if one group is being oppressed. Ask guys like Manning and Brady if they feel oppressed, that's if they aren't too busy counting the nearly 20 million or so they make a year. If anything you could almost argue the other way around. Sure majority of players are black but look at coaches and executives only 2 black coaches and off hand I cant think of any black GM's.
