NFL Players Forfeit Important Legal Rights in New CBA

NFL NFLPA CBA Divide and Conquer Roger Goodell DeMaurice Smith

Whether you speak of a nation or football league, class warfare is a lethal weapon when deployed effectively.  For the past 10 years, the NFL has game planned and executed that plan through the CBA now up for voting by NFLPA members.

Attorney Goes on Offense Against Spotty NFL Arguments

leopards in the court

The NFL has shown time and again that it’s a leopard that never changes its spots. In response to an appeal by a nine-year defensive lineman who was diagnosed with severe dementia at the young age of 33, the NFL has continued to repeat the same numbing refrain that it has for the better part of three years in its quest to stop dementia claims in their tracks, especially the claims of younger players, whom the NFL doesn’t want to admit are damaged, nor does it want to pay the high-dollar awards that younger claimants qualify for.

Sometimes the best move is No Move.

Facts are Facts.  Math is Math. Opinions will vary on their impact on an individual’s unique circumstances around the Globe. However, that doesn’t change the Facts or Math that sometimes No Move is your best move.

As the NFL/NFLPA bargaining continues to be a hot topic of debate on social media many are taking a position on if the terms are good, bad or just “meh”.
