    The coal industry is multiple companies... NFL is its own entity.

    Can't expect coal company "a" to pay for company "b"'s retired worker.

    The amount of retirees from the NFL is huge. No way in hell the NFL could afford to pay every single retired NFL player or a deceased players family. The amount would be absurd.

    Seems pretty clear that he doesn't qualify. I'd suspect if he did suffer from a neuro-cognitive impairment he could get a doctor to testify as such.

    He can look on the bright side: at least he doesn't have Alzheimer, Parkinson or ALS and if he did he would qualify.

    But they can afford to pay their executives tens of millions every year in salaries? Give me a break. If they wanted to make it right they could.

    So guys like Rolando McClain who have played 2 years and now considered "retired" could collect a retirement check? Or any guy who complains could collect a paycheck for life for saying they have headaches? These guy make plenty of money to take care of themselves and it's their own fault for not investing and blowing it all.
