It has to be a technicality between assumed risk vs actual risk

One way or another those lawsuits will come eventually. I would think it would be better for the NFL to get ahead of them and try to work it out in a way that could minimize the damage and garner some goodwill, but hey, IANAL.

That might be the worst acronym I've ever seen...

There's a difference between what you guys are talking about and their active role in covering it up, which is what that article is talking about. They can't cop to having spent 15-20 years screwing with the data for their own gain.

They need to fix it now before it's too late, I think is my point. They're going to have to pay, at this point. They fucked up for too long. But in general? They're not at fault for anything but this absurd negligence. It's *not* their fault that sports cause concussions. It's their responsibility to provide the safest potential environment for the players. It's their responsibility to continue research into better helmets, and the best set of rules that doesn't compromise the game, but also protects the players.

I guess what I'm describing is a perfect world where they were transparent from the start. Never denying anything, and completely being open about the dangers from the beginning. Should they have done that, I'd say they'd never be responsible for the concussions.

So I guess the Rams after fleecing the Redskins a few years ago in the RG3 trade wanted to know what it felt like to be on the receiving end of the fleecing.

As frustrated as I get with Ted Thompson sometimes, today is one of those days that I'm glad he's the Packers' GM.

How many picks were given up? Has that been released yet?

Yikes. Again, I get so pissed at Ted Thompson for being so conservative but at least I know he'll never blow 5 draft picks on a QB who may or may not turn out to be great.

The Eagles are trying to make the Rams look smart.
