Full StoryDisappointed the owners have decided not to continue our health insurance past march 4. All the talk about player safety and health and it seems money is all that matters. We usually have health insurance for a calender yr starting when a player makes the team in september. Players have sick kids and babies on the way and now our health insurance is being cut with very short notice. Frustrating.
While I understand it's frustrating, I really can't shed a tear over this. While there's a lot of players like Doughty in the league not making top dollar, hundreds of thousands of people in this country who make a fraction of the league vet min. have lost their health coverage in the past few years. With the money many players make, I'm a bit angered that this is even an issue, even knowing Doughty's situation.
Welcome to the real world, oh Gods of the Gridiron...
