And sadly in our sue happy country that is bad. Since common sense goes out the door in most cases and we aren't responsible for our own actions. And since the NFL rules require that you be out of high school for 3 years, most if not all, the players have gone to college.
Maybe they should have paid attention in class and learned something. The evidence has been growing for years to anyone that cared to look. But they don't care they only see the $$$$ and when they get hurt they are once again looking at the $$$$ by trying to sue.
There should be some liability from the league but there needs to be some from the players as well.
