I‘m uncertain of the source, but I was forwarded something that I’ve been told is making its way around the retired NFL community. While there are grains of truth in the message, there are also exaggerations coupled with some really bad advice.
The only purpose in this that I can see is to sow discord – player to player and player against attorney. Divide and conquer is one of the NFL’s best strategies. Our nation is divided and I think we can all see the harm. A house divided against itself cannot stand, so I hope people will keep this in mind, as they try to navigate the treacherous waters of the Concussion Settlement. I’ve tried to separate fact from fiction and speculation in this Twitter thread. Click on it to expand. I hope you’ll find it helpful. ~Sheilla
This was forwarded to me a few minutes ago, and I find it troubling that someone is working to divide and conquer #NFL Concussion Settlement Class Members. Remember- divide, conquer, and create doubt is the NFL’s most effective strategy. pic.twitter.com/aFJMyRb1cD
