Sports Fans Coalition: NFL Must Reconsider Player Disability Claims That Were ‘Swept Aside’September 15, 2011
‘Is There a Veterans’ “Bonus March” in the NFL’s Future?’ (full text)September 16, 2011
Ramogi Huma, the former UCLA linebacker who founded and presides over the quasi-union National College Players Association (http://www.ncpanow.org), provided this blog with a statement on the class-action lawsuit on players’ concussions that was filed against the National Collegiate Athletic Association in Illinois federal court:
“This concussion lawsuit strikes at the very core of what’s wrong with the NCAA’s priorities: money first, players last. The NCAA and its members seem to be focused more on conference realignments and windfall TV deals than on addressing what is the number one health threat to the players who generate the money.”
I have found almost no coverage of this case, which was reported here yesterday at https://concussioninc.net/?p=4593
. There is only one cite at Google News, from a small legal news website.
