Fighting for Themselves, Fighting for the Game

The season is near, but don't lose perspective on the importance of the players’ battle in the concussion lawsuit. And meet Kevin Turner, one of its foremost faces

There’s only one story today, still. I know the season is three days away, and the concussion case settlement is four days old. But this head trauma issue was the nuclear cloud that hung over the game, and I think there are things you need to know—particularly you who would trash the settlement as being too meager. “Chump change,’’ I believe many of you called it on Twitter and elsewhere. We’ll have all week, and the bottom 3,500 words of this column, to trumpet the opening of the league’s 94th season. This morning, you need to hear the story of 44-year-old former battering-ram fullback and current ALS sufferer Kevin Turner, and of the lead plaintiffs’ attorney who woke up more than once at night thinking of Turner, and how men like Turner pushed this case to get settled.

STATEMENT RE: NFL CONCUSSION SETTLEMENT

As you can imagine, we are being inundated with calls for interviews with Kevin in light of the settlement announcement this morning.

Kevin is pleased with the settlement, however, he still has ALS, and its still incurable.

We pray you will continue support our efforts to end this horrible disease and to warn parents, players and coaches of the dangers of repeat brain trauma.
