NFL retirees ripped off

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing the NFL players' union of inadequately representing 3,500 retired players. The suit alleged the NFL Players Association and its licensing subsidiary, Players Inc., has done little to secure deals with clothing manufacturers, video game makers and other venues. It also sought class-action status to represent the 3,500 retired players, who it says might be owed "tens of millions of dollars." In a prepared statement Friday, the association said "those claims have now been rejected by a federal judge as having no merit whatsoever as pled."

With the lack of steroid and concussion policy during their playing days these retired players will either commit suicide over the anguish of this defeat, or end up completely forgetting it within a week. Yes, they'll piss their Depends too.
