    And also remember that the plaintiffs attorneys haven't been canvassing for names to add to the suit for nothing. They aren't playing for the love of the game here.

    Lack of focus, memory loss, trouble sleeping, mood swings, lack of sex drive, desire to do the everyday stuff in life, etc............ They just described me and correct me if I'm wrong......I believe that's called getting older.

    Yancey Thigpen heads a group of players suing helmet-maker Riddell
    Posted by Darin Gantt on July 15, 2016, 9:42 AM EDT


    A week after Hall of Famer Paul Hornung filed a lawsuit against Riddell, another group of former NFL players including former Steelers wide receiver Yancey Thigpen filed their own suit against the helmet-maker.

    According to the Associated Press, the lawsuit filed Thursday in Cook County Circuit Cort in Chicago says the players suffered personal and financial injuries because they were not warned about potential long-term risks.

    The players are seeking more than $50,000 in damages and a jury trial.

    Other players filing the suit are” Gregory Boone, Larry Brinson, Michael Butler, Craig Curry, James Harrell, Willard Harrell, Robert Harris, Carlton “Bailey” Jones, Brad Quast, Thomas “John” Reaves, John Michael Reichenbach, Adam Schreiber and Eric Wright.

    Hornung sued Riddell, claiming the helmets didn’t protect him from brain injuries. He has been diagnosed with dementia, according to his lawsuit.

    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I expect many of them feel honestly justified. They did take beatings over the years, and the medical proof of the physical cost of these beatings just emerged. Their choices were uninformed, due to no fault of theirs or the leagues, but they gotta hold someone responsible I guess.

    terrible analogy.

    its more like sueing GM because they said airbags werent important and seatbelts were overrated.

    While I think all these guys knew the risk of playing football I think the NFL lied to them about how to treat concussions. They didnt give the players the correct info and thats why players will continue to sue.

    What i dont agree with is sueing once you go broke.

    The NFL had the info about concussions and actively worked to hide it...
