A newsletter recently went out to our retired NFL folks which scheduled our first Zoom meetings. During the meetings, I provided updates on some important developments in NFL disability and the concussion settlement along with a glimpse into some of the behind-the-scenes work I’ve been focused on. The attendees seemed to enjoy the meetings so I plan to host additional Zooms in the future and hope that many of you will be able to participate.
It also looks like we will be bringing in a new (volunteer) writer and plans to update the blog more frequently once she is able to start writing. To those who recently made donations to keep our work moving forward — a BIG THANK YOU! To those who haven’t yet contributed please consider a donation of whatever you can spare. Our Zoom attendees were informed of some of the work I’ve been quietly undertaking on behalf of the retired NFL community and additional work I’d like to take on should funding permit. You can make a secure tax-deductible donation by clicking here.
Along the same line, or at least geared toward to goal of raising funds for additional work, I’d like to announce that for the first time I have accepted advertising on the site–but not just any advertising. In order for an ad to appear here, It has to be something that I am very comfortable endorsing and as a dog lover, I’m happy to affiliate with the K-9 Training institute.
|I’m a huge dog lover and I strongly appreciate the approach the K-9 Institute takes with behavioral dog training, using service dog training methods as a model. Their free workshop offers an introduction to such skills as how to teach your dog to walk nicely on a leash, stop jumping up on people or charging/barking at the door.
As some of you are aware, I am hearing impaired. What you probably don’t know is that I had a service dog — a hearing dog — and had the fantastic opportunity to participate in her training so I know that the methods used by the K-9 Institute are the real deal and the cool part of undertaking this type of training is that it is actually in my opinion, easier to train your dog using these methods, Since losing my service dog, I have successfully trained my other canine companions using the methods I learned when I worked with a service dog trainer to train Lucy.
|The free workshop introduces you to the methods used in service dog training to curb common behavioral issues, and should you decide to go further, Advocacy for Fairness in Sports will receive a referral fee 90 days from your enrollment since The K-9 Institute offers a money back guarantee that you will be pleased with the results you achieve with your dog, creating a win-win for everyone.
Please feel free to contact me with questions you have regarding the work Advocacy for Fairness in Sports is doing, or if as a retired player, you need assistance in obtaining your benefits.
