Good for them. Time to hold this team accountable for the damage that players endure. It comes down to providing a safe work environment.

We need to protect workers in Kansas City and everywhere!

At what point will we decide to not let our children play this game?

Who are your "KICK-ASS TIPSTERS"? FOX 4 News? They have been reporting this with live feeds from Arrowhead stadium since 4:30 am. You're several hours behind the 8 ball Tony.

6:53? You're an idiot. These grown men knew the risks of voluntarily playing a violent game.

Is there any evidence these players didn't sustain these injuries in college or high school?

I guess since Byron the fat fuck can't see it nobody should get to see it. Besides you condescending blind fuck, just the other day you were trying to act cool talking to Glazer about football.

Speaking of Byron, does this look like a blind disabled man who can't work? Or does it look like your dope head brother in law that is on welfare and is constantly telling everyone how to live their lives? http://morgantownchess.org/images/mso2006-pics/mso2006-11.JPG

Whether you love or hate personal injury lawyers, Ken McClain is one bad-ass mutha!

They play football. 300 lb people knock them on their asses. What did they expect?

This is like the widow of a professional gunfighter filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who won the gunfight.

8:50. What part of "Fox 4 News" confuses you?

NFL is becoming feminized and liberalized. NFL commentators taking political positions on air during games such as gun control.

Obama reaching out to the NFL to get players to promote Obama care. All the rules and changes....I am not saying there arent a few things to improve but its getting out of control.


I guess under this theory then troops should be able to sue the government for injuries in combat!

Me and 200,000 Chiefs fans are filing a class action against the Chiefs and the County for hearing loss suffered while listening to those screaming drunks at Arrowhead. Hell, we all might as well cash in. I figure we have a great chance of prevailing given that all the players had to do was quit their job to prevent injury. The fans were brainwashed with adds bragging about what a winning team we should all go see at Arrowhead. Additionally we are looking at a case about false advertising too. Also the gas fumes in the parking lot likely poisoned my tailgating food and caused long term effect that only God can imagine. Also my ass has never stopped aching form sitting in those cheezy stadium seats.

11:42 makes some good points. how will we continue to convince the rest of the world we are sufficiently barbaric to be the ruling empire if we stop insisting that young, mostly poc, undereducated young men, not sacrifice their bodies and minds to the profit margins of about 31 billionaires (packers being socialist)?

football players aren't soldiers they are fieldworkers, dumbass. its not a war, its entertainment. do you think war is entertainment?

I have empathy for the former players and their families; however, these were grown men making adult decisions and paid millions of dollars to play.

They could have easily said no once they had a diagnosis from the doctor but, they must accept some of the blame for continuing to play. I'm sorry to say but greed on their part has a major influence on their decision to continue playing and knowing the risks.

The NFL and teams have an obligation to them to a point, but to come back and sue when they knew the risks I think they'll have a hard time finding a jury that is to sympathetic.

The Courthouse Exchange is serving chicken fried steaks daily. Should a fat ass diabetic be able to sue Ken? He knows the fat content of those meals he is serving to the public.

By watching the game yesterday I'm not so sure over half the team was playing with severe concussions, how else do you explain that ass throttling.

This is just like welfare for former football players. Art Still is in great shape as are many of the other guys. They are just trying to jump on the NFL bandwagon, nothing more.
Keep in mind, these are guys who could not name all their illegitimate kids when they were playing.

Any informed parent worth a shit would not allow their sons to play football.

Baseball, basketball....., but not football. Years ago, we did not know the dangers.

sports are a waste. good parents should encourage kids to study.

A better argument would be "At what point do we not allow our children to associate with niggers on any basis?".

1:24pm You obviously don't know Art Still, or you would know that he has suffered great disability from his injuries. He is a very nice person and I hope he wins this one.

Agreed!

CTE, which is what the players are suing for, can only be diagnosed after death by doing an autopsy on the brain. So like ambulance chaser Ken McClain to stir up a case like this. What did the players think repeated head trauma was going to do to them?
