Anyone else have a problem with this besides me? I get it, it was a tragedy and to the family it is traumatic and I feel for them but come on man. You can not sue the NFL claiming there was some grand concussion cover up. ****, I played football and never once was the word concussion muttered until I was watching it from my lazy-boy on Sunday afternoons.
I'm sorry but the utter ridiculousness of lawsuits these days is just mind boggling, I mean the next thing we will see is someone suing because gravity made them fall and they weren't warned of it.
Can't eat red meat, can't drink, can't play football, ......might as well lock me in my house so I can wait to die.
Family of former Bear Dave Duerson sues over his suicide
By Todd Lighty Tribune reporter 12:42 p.m. CST, February 23, 2012
Former Chicago Bear Dave Duerson’s family today sued the NFL over his suicide last year, claiming the league for decades had known that concussions from playing football cause brain damage but deliberately concealed that information from players, coaches and fans.
Duerson, a Pro Bowl safety, sustained at least three concussions during his 11-year playing career and suffered from progressive, advanced brain damage known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, according to the lawsuit.
“If the NFL would have taken the necessary steps to oversee and protect Dave Duerson by warning him of the dangers of head traumas. . .then (he) would not have suffered dangerous repetitive head trauma, would have recovered more rapidly, and would not have sustained permanent damage to his brain which contributed to his death,” according to the suit.
