    if I understand the local radio deal FW owns the show and the other 2 guys work for him


    Not a radio guy and I could totally be wrong but that is what I think that deal is.

    I don't think it is about the money.

    Frank was beat up with concussions back in the early 2000's before he retired.

    It seemed like he was always missing time because of his head towards the end.

    CTE requires an autopsy. Wycheck can get his money if he lets them cut out part of his brain to examine it. Otherwise, everybody can claim the symptoms he is claiming.

    These old guys who used to play the game are a complete joke. They are just bitching and moaning because they didn't get paid as much as the athletes do now and are jealous. They knew the risks when they signed up. They should just be happy they made any money off of some game and should have saved their money they made better.

    My whole hang up in this thing is if they simply wore the provided equipment so many of these injuries would have never happened. I took hundreds of head shots during my time playing, never had a single concussion or neck injury. I wore my mouth piece, I buckled my chin strap, and more importantly I wore a helmet that fit. I see so many players with loose helmets and tiny ear pads, they bring this on themselves.
