    Regardless they get paid high dollars for a high risk job. There should be a clause in all the contracts that say you can not sue us for injuries that occur from playing this game.

    The thing with most NFL athletes is that they want to be coddled like babies after they retire. They receive millions, blow it and expect to be compensated for injuries they received playing a dangerous game they signed up for.

    You don't hear any of the fishermen trying to get a payout for lingering injuries after they retire.
