I'm surprised the amount was that low. I was expecting it to be in excess of a billion or two considering, according to Kevin Mawae, the No Fun League's estimated revenue by 2025 will be in excess of $27 billion. I was kinda hoping it wouldn't get settled because I wanted the NFL to disclose some of their reports and findings, not to mention explaining why the league's Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Committee was led for more than a decade by a rheumatologist.
The players are so stupid. Why would they settle.... without taking out fees, divided evenly, each player gets 42.5k
edit: I was doing the math using 18000 players because that was how I originally read it, but apparently it was only 4500 players? That changes it to 170k, which still isn't much. Plus they are opening it up to players that weren't on the lawsuit, which will drive the amount/player down.
apparently the lawyer fees are in addition to, so they wont take a cut.
