Dr. Gerald Maher the Tufts head and neck specialist, who has worked with the N. E Patriots medical staff for over two decades, will be in Atlanta to present his theory on concussion prevention to the Arena Football equipment managers. The Maher mouth guard is the official mouth guard of the AFL, we intend to market a concussion system, helmet, and mouth guard. The difference behind the Maher mouth guard is that it is actually a medical procedure that corrects diagnosable cartilage damage, the Dean of Tufts dental research says its use is inevitable, an irrefutable study is needed in order for the NFL to listen. Dr.Maher is now in talks with the NFL on a research project, its methodology is being questioned, and their objective. A positive finding will give former players grounds for suit, when you know something for years and withhold it from the players you should be protecting, that's negligence. Tufts is prepared to do that independent study, please go to our web site to read the latest stories on the subject.

I am so tired of the retired players. It seems that the NFLPA has made vast improvements to players retirement packages as a whole. I also believe the NFL and NFLPA are working to make things better all the time. I just don't understand how a guy who works only 3, 5 or 10 years feels he deserves a pension for the rest of his life....for playing a kids game, that they choose to play. I wish my Chief would see it that way when I compete my 6th year for the NYFD.

disability on any level - private ins.- gov't ins.- whatever - is notorious for trying not to pay. why would we think the NFL would be any different? or any more honorable! insurance people's job is to NOT pay a claim and anyone who thinks differently is naive. unfortunately if the person is not fully "all there in the head" and can't afford legal help, they are not going to get paid what they should.
