Deion Sanders was a great NFL player but he may have to learn about some of the effects from it. On Sunday, Sanders blasted the concussion lawsuit brought on by former players and he labeled it as people just trying to milk the league for extra money.
Deion Sanders just said there’s no concussion problem, that it’s just ex-players looking for money. What a complete and utter moron.

First off, this is one of the dumbest things that have ever been said. There is proof that there is a concussion problem in football. Sanders is ignoring facts and logic to make such a statement. Then again, Sanders is not exactly the most logical person on the planet.
I may not be able to speak about the concussions in the NFL, but I can on problems in football. I had a few concussions in high school football and they do have an effect. The short-term stuff is bad but the long-term makes it even worse. It is not fun having random headaches or times when you forgot fairly obvious things.
Sanders needs to be blasted for this statement. It is an insult to the players that are struggling in their life after football because they gave everything they had on the field. They played when concussions weren’t really studied and no one wanted to know what they could do. Saying this lawsuit is simply for cash is just stupid.
Maybe if Sanders would have played towards contact, he’d be singing a different tune.
