    Once the judge approves this I hope the last thing I hear from McMahon is something to the effect of glad this is over. His comments may be few & far in between I'm so tired of hearing him flap his fat mouth. He knew the repercussion when signing his contracts.

    My beleif is that these guys are just doing this to pick the NFL bones for cash. A lot of people dont manage money well and some of these 70's and 80's and even 90's retired guys have blown through the money they made so now they need more. Yeah, you may have HAD a concussion, why wait this long.....or maybe they are all jumping on the lawsuit bandwagon/gravy train.

    Agreed. They miss the big checks. I heard Troy Polimalu actually asked guys who know how to manage $ what to do & didn't ask other players. Payton actually invested in about 20 Papa Johns stores last year in the Denver area.

    ESPN showed some emails or tweets from former players. Some said the money can't replace the lives lost or the players memories. Then they shouldn't have played football the big cry babies. It seems like $675M towards paying families

    Agreed... I will likely not get a head injury at my job. .. but I also make far less then league minimum. They should have asked themselves whet the money was worth it before they chose to pay a game for money.
