    Where were all those murder/ suicides in the 30's through 90's when concussions were more frequent and often... Just an excuse.

    What? They didn't tell him he might hurt his head playing football? I wonder what they thought THE HELMET was for.

    I wonder if it is in his contract that he can get hurt... sorry, but this is just a poor excuse for Belcher's mom to try to get money from the Chiefs.

    Can anybody explain to me how someone with a college education could be unaware that repeatedly using your body as a battering ram will cause long term harm? To suggest that players don't know the risks and accept them willingly is like suggesting that someone who starts smoking cigarettes today doesn't know the risks. Every player in the NFL knows the risks and that has been true for a long time.

    Maybe Belcher's daughter should sue grandma for not raising her son to be a more stable person.

    I had two bad concussions falling off different bikes when I was a kid. So I guess Schwinn and Huffy had better hope I never go postal.

    I don't know what Jury will side with her. Yes most people would likely stick it to the company with pockets, but this guy killed his girlfriend, after cheating on her, then killed himself once the cops showed up at Arrowhead.

    His mother lost custody to his daughter, in which she then exumed his body a full year later to test for CTE just so she can sue the Chiefs. I hope the Chiefs don't settle with her and fight this money hungry excuse of a mother.

    Because they don't earn that degree and take classes that ask "which of these is different from the others; Cat, Dog, Bird, Boat?"
