Imagine minding your own business and going about your day only to get a phone call from someone saying they saw your ad, and you learn that you’ve been displayed in full-color, glossy pages advertising a pain clinic you’ve never been to, endorsing a doctor who’s never treated or examined you, and seeing “your statements” that his treatments got you to the Super Bowl. That’s exactly what retired NFLer Jared Allen alleges in a lawsuit filed against Pain Free Life Centers and Dr. Jeff Morton.

On July 12, Daniel Kaplan of the Athletic reported on a staggering drop in profits for the Green Bay Packers as revealed in their 2018 Financial Report.
This was a huge departure from the prior financials, in which the team gained $75 million in profit from operations in 2016 and $65.3 million in 2017. Since the publicly owned Packers are the only team required to release financial reports, their reports have often been viewed as a barometer for the NFL as a whole. The NFL Concussion Settlement was cited as one of their increased expenses.

Dear Retired Players and Families,
It’s been a fast-paced time for Advocacy for Fairness in Sports and it seems the month has flown by. We’ve produced quite a bit of content over the past month and have launched a couple new projects that I’ll tell you about later. But first, there’s some settlement news that you need to be aware of. This is detailed in our most recent article on the settlement. On July 2, Lead Counsel Chris Seeger sent a letter to the Class. In it he announced that he is the lone attorney (or firm) representing the class as a whole. I wrote about the dismissal of other Class Counsel and addressed that issue in last month’s newsletter.
