New Orleans Saints Brees NFL Retiree Statement Haunts Lawsuit
Written by 

Drew BreesA group of retired NFL players have filed a lawsuit against the NFL


In support of the argument that current players aren't committed to taking care of the retired players, the lawsuit echos this quote from Drew Brees: "There's some guys out there that have made bad business decisions. They took their pensions early because they never went out and got a job. They've had a couple of divorces and they're making pavements to this place and that place. And that's why they don't have money. They've had a couple of divorces and that's why they don't have money. And they're coming to us to basically say, 'Please make up for my bad judgment." The retired players claim that this quote constitutes "antipathy for NFL retirees" from the Saints quarterback

Brees was active in early mediation sessions, but has not been involved in any of the recent talks, which possibly are laying the foundation for a settlement.

The lawyers met for 11 hours on Wednesday in Manhattan, working on the crafting of language that will appear in the new CBA, if andwhen a new CBA is finalized.

Thursday looks to be the biggest day to date in determining whether this deal can be worked out in a manner that salvages the entire preseason and regular season.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
