Judge OKs 65-year deal over NFL concussions; could cost $1B

By MARYCLAIRE DALEAssociated Press PHILADELPHIA (AP) – A federal judge has approved a settlement agreement that is expected to cost the NFL $1 billion over 65 years to resolve thousands of concussion lawsuits. NFL actuaries project about 6,000 of the league's nearly 20,000 retired players could someday develop Alzheimer's disease or moderate dementia over the life of the deal approved Wednesday by a federal judge in Philadelphia. The average award would be about $190,000. Awards could reach $1 million to $5 million for those diagnosed in their 30s and 40s with Parkinson's disease or Lou Gehrig's disease, or for deaths involving chronic brain trauma. The benefits process could start this summer, but any appeal would delay all payments indefinitely. “What matters now is time, and many retired players do not have much left,” said plaintiff Kevin Turner, a former New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles running back who has Lou Gehrig's disease. The league has been dogged for years by complaints that it long hid the risks of repeated concussions to return players to the field. Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody approved the settlement after twice sending it back to lawyers over concerns the fund might run out. The negotiators did not increase the original $765 million plan, but agreed to remove that number as the cap. The settlement approval, a week before the NFL draft, ends a nearly four-year legal fight. A trial could have delayed the financial awards and medical testing for years, plaintiff's lawyers Christopher Seeger and Sol Weiss said. “Today, these courageous men and their families have made history,” plaintiffs' lawyers Christopher Seeger and Sol Weiss said in a statement. “With over 99 percent participation, it is clear the retired player community overwhelmingly supports this agreement,” the lawyers added. “Indeed, throughout this settlement process, we have heard directly from countless retired players who are in dire need of these benefits.” The deal means the NFL may never have to disclose what it knew when about the risks and treatment of concussions. The settlement, Brody wrote, is not an admission of liability or wrongdoing or recognition of the validity of the plaintiffs' claims. But the NFL has acknowledged the concussion epidemic publicly, changing protocols for evaluating injured players during games and launching an advertising and social media campaign to promote safe play at all levels of football. The league's top lawyer said Brody's approval “powerfully underscores the fairness and propriety” of the settlement. “Retirees and their families will be eligible for prompt and substantial benefits and will avoid years of costly litigation that – as Judge Brody's comprehensive opinion makes clear – would have an uncertain prospect of success,” NFL general counsel Jeff Pash said in a statement. The total NFL payouts over 65 years, including interest and $112 million sought for lawyer fees, is expected to exceed $1 billion. Critics contend the NFL is getting off lightly given annual revenues of about $10 billion. But plaintiffs would have first had to fight their way into court – instead of getting booted to NFL mediation under their players' contracts – to prevail. “From a business point of view, (the NFL has) … avoided what may have been the biggest risk to their continued prosperity,” said Andrew Brandt, director of the sports law program at Villanova University law school. “Removing this as a threat is extraordinary.” The NFL lawsuits, and similar suits filed later against the NHL, the NCAA and others, has fostered debate, discussion and safety reforms about sports concussions. Yet the NFL games seem to be as wildly popular as ever. Participation statistics also show only a slight decline in the overall number of high school students playing football, and only 5 percent of parents polled last summer by Associated Press-GfK said they have discouraged their child from playing in the last two years as concern over head injuries has increased. “I know people talk about, it's dangerous, and mothers won't let their sons play football. But I don't see that. I don't see that at all,” Brandt said. More than 5,000 former players were plaintiffs in the lawsuit. About 200 NFL retirees or their families have rejected the settlement and plan to sue the league individually. They include the family of Junior Seau, the popular Hall of Famer who killed himself at his San Diego-area home in 2012 after several years of increasingly erratic behavior. An autopsy showed he suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Brody most recently asked for several tweaks, including partial credit for time played in NFL Europe and other developmental leagues, to broaden the settlement. Negotiators quickly agreed to her suggestions. She rejected other complaints raised in 83 written objections and at a November hearing, including those who say the agreement does not cover future deaths from CTE, a degenerative brain disease that can only be diagnosed after death, or contemplate the day when it might be diagnosed in the living. Others oppose the award reductions for older men and those who played fewer than five years in the league. “Although objectors insist that there must be compensation for CTE, the NFL parties were unwilling to settle claims based solely on a (diagnosis) … rather than on manifest neurocognitive deficits,” the lead negotiators wrote in a March court filing urging Brody to approve the deal. “Many of the behavioral and mood conditions claimed to be associated with CTE are prevalent within the general public.” _ Associated Press writer Michael R.

Judge approves NFL concussion lawsuit settlement

A federal judge has given final approval to a class-action lawsuit settlement between the National Football League and thousands of former players, the league said. The agreement provides up to $5 million per retired player for serious medical conditions associated with repeated head trauma. While the lawsuit was a combination of hundreds of actions brought by more than 5,000 ex-NFL players, the settlement applies to all players who retired on or before July 7, 2014, according to Judge Anita Brody’s 132-page decision. Quick Clicks NFL Concussions Fast Facts NFL suspends Greg Hardy for 10 games Global map shows EPL fans by country Champions League: Porto blown away… Bayless to referee Mayweather v Pacquiao Faldo to make final British Open… Tennis star Wawrinka separates from wife It also applies to the family members of players who died before that date. About 200 other former players opted out of the settlement to the lawsuit, which accused the NFL of hiding the dangers of concussions. The NFL said the players and their families would be eligible for “prompt and substantial benefits.” “Today’s decision powerfully underscores the fairness and propriety of this historic settlement,” said Jeff Pash, the NFL’s top lawyer. There is no cap on the amount of funds available to pay the monetary awards and all valid claims will be paid in full for 65 years. Initially there was a $765 million figure on the settlement with $675 million capped. Brody declined in January 2014 to approve the deal, saying she was concerned about the amount of money. But another agreement reached in June eliminated a maximum for the monetary award fund. Brody gave her tentative approval to the deal two weeks later, but also held a hearing in November for people who wanted to comment on the fairness of the deal. In February, she told the plaintiffs and the NFL to enhance the compensation for players who suffered from symptoms of CTE, chronic traumatic encephalopathy. CTE is a progressive degenerative brain disease found in some athletes with a history of repetitive brain trauma. More than 50 former NFL players, including Junior Seau and Dave Duerson, have been posthumously diagnosed with the disease. The retired players or their estates could receive between $1.5 million and $5 million depending on their age and the severity of their cognitive impairment. Players with fewer than five years of experience will receive smaller awards. The settlement also will provide eligible retired players with baseline neurological exams. People who want to file a claim must do so within 180 days of receiving notice the settlement is in effect. Source: http://www.clickondetroit.com/

New article (Young NFL Stars Like Chris Borland Walking Away Early) San Francisco’s Chris Borland is the latest young NFL player to walk away from professional football. Borland was not just some guy. He led the 49ers in tackles last year as a rookie.
has been published on Movie TV Tech Geeks #ChrisBorland, #Featured, #NFL, #PatrickWillis
San Francisco’s Chris Borland is the latest young NFL player to walk away from professional football. Borland was not just some guy. He led the 49ers in tackles last year as a rookie. By all reports he was a budding superstar, especially with Patrick Willis‘ abrupt retirement leaving more playing time for the kid out of Wisconsin. Borland and Willis are among several guys who have had enough of the violent game. While each man has stated their own reasons for walking away from a game that pays out millions, Borland has been the most direct in his reasoning.
Borland spoke with ESPN’s Outside the Lines, “I just honestly want to do what’s best for my health,” said Borland, who met with prominent concussion researchers before making his decision. “From what I’ve researched and what I’ve experienced, I don’t think it’s worth the risk.” This line of thinking is far different from the prevailing thought in the NFL from just a few years ago and from the majority of players today. But that tide may be turning even if slightly.
If you did a survey of current NFL players and they answered honestly, I feel like 80 percent would say they would give ten years off their life for the rewards that come from banging heads together on the football field. These guys know that the best money they will ever make is in the NFL, so while the thought of living a shorter life in exchange for more money sounds crazy, they can surely make a case for it. Would they rather live to be 70 having never owned a mansion or fancy car? Or would they prefer to kick the bucket around 60 years old with memories of flying across the country on team planes and spending the off season on an exclusive island? Many would take the latter choice. The number of years each player would be willing to give up is the only variable.
Chris Borland isn’t willing to give up any years to the dangers of the NFL. He is getting out while the getting is good. He flat stated that he wants to live a long healthy life. That is as worthy a goal as winning four Super Bowls. I’m sure he wouldn’t want a long life of dumpster diving, but I think this young man will do pretty well for himself outside of The League. He has sense enough to want to protect his health so he will do fine in whatever career he chooses. That doesn’t have to be totally away from football or sports either. However, it would be a little hypocritical to coach other football players that are facing the dangers that made him give up the game.
If any player is going to give up on an NFL career, I would say that linebacker is right up there with running back as positions with more to lose than anyone. Every player, except the QB, can get beat up pretty good during a game. But running backs and linebackers get a lot of head on collisions just by the nature of the position. It’s impossible to estimate the number of concussions that Borland has saved himself by retiring from the Niners. But concussed he would have been.
Do we have to worry about all the best and brightest leaving the NFL for more peaceful events like meditation, weed expos in Colorado, and signing up for the Peace Corps? I wouldn’t bet on it. I don’t see a ton of guys giving up dreams that have been in the works since many were in elementary school balling. There are guys who don’t know what else to do and will struggle to find meaningful careers once they can no longer perform well enough to make a 53 man roster. These players certainly are not going to walk away voluntarily as young men because of long term health effects that may or may not catch up to them specifically.
What I do see happening is the younger players of the football world being diverted to safer sports like baseball, basketball, and even golf. Parents are getting the message about brain trauma and are at least considering the odds of their kids ending up like Junior Seau and Dave Duerson. That’s a dark vision for any parent, no matter how much they love to see their kid cross the goal line.
I love football and have a strong dislike for baseball, which I find extremely boring. What the hell takes so long about throwing the damn ball pitch after pitch? If I had a young son wanting to play sports, I would steer him toward baseball rather than my favorite sport of football though. The game is safer long and short term. By the way, MLB has a real union unlike the NFL’s weak version that gets run over time after time by The League.
My hats off to both Chris Borland and Patrick Willis. It takes a lot of stones to quit an NFL job. The money won’t be as good, the thrills not as high in their next gig, and some idiots might even question these guys’ toughness (ridiculous). Willis was already feeling the effects of pro football after finishing his eighth season in 2014. His feet  problems were more than he wanted to endure going forward. Borland saw the light before he had any major issues. The evidence of former players’ struggles was enough to convince him. The NFL is worse off without their talent as are the 49ers, but I have a feeling these two players will be better off in the long run and that’s hard to type and tough to swallow.

VIDEO Colin #Cowherd Defends Skip #Bayless & Takes Shot at Dan #Patrick

Colin Cowherd is known for not holding back on his opinions on anything, so today he decided to discuss Johnny Manziel’s decision to enter rehab. He mentioned a few months ago how everyone bashed Skip Bayless for saying Manziel had a problem with alcohol and went on to defend Skip.

“I’ve worked in this business 35 years. Skip outworks all of us. The hardest working guy when I got into this business was Jim Rome … That guy grinds it every day. You don’t know anybody that works like him. This radio business I’m in is full of guys who read the sports page and rip crap off. I’m here three hours a day. So is Rome-y. Dan Patrick doesn’t work as hard as Rome — not even close. That’s why I’ve always respected Rome-y. He puts the time in. Patrick needs 35 producers to fill a segment.”

Cowherd and Patrick don’t like each other due to a media squabbles going as far back as 2012 around the time of Junior Seau’s suicide.
