    Particularly speaking in the National Football league. It's scandalous and a complete shame that in a league that has unionization in it doesn't take care of it's own. Considering how the actual athletes actually made all of the money for the League and it's owners, I find it appalling at the way some of the older players that didn't actually cash in on any fat paychecks, are being denied medical treatment for breaking down their body in the name of the league.

    The NFL is a disgrace. Actually football from the ground up. And it's only going to get worse, given that tackling with the head (as opposed to the shoulder) has become standard over the past 2 decades.
