But to blur the picture -- by the media, the NFL, the NFLPA and the legal experts --   and to not make a clear distinction between the pre-1993 disabled NFL retirees and those post-1993, is but a disservice. And in light of these recent lawsuits, it but adds more salt to the wounds of these elder players; seemingly cast aside, time and time again.

And not unlike the federal government, which has become the master of the art of deception, derision and dominance of its constituents, the NFL and the NFLPA have but attempted the same such feats. And their ideology that football remains "just a game" is disingenuous at best.

If indeed the NFL as well as the NFLPA claim that players' health remains of the utmost concern, then both entities should begin with the bedrock of the game; its heroes of yesteryear, before it is too late.
