Heartlander of the Week: Stick up for Yourselves

This week’s Heartlanders are the NFL Alumni who sued the League on their own behalf for failing to adequately protect them from head injuries.  This follows the suicides of Junior Seau and several other NFL retirees (and NHL players) who suffered brain damage during their playing years.

If you love the sport, you love the players.  Even if you don’t love the sport, you should still value the lives and health of the players, your fellow human beings.  There are solutions to this that will preserve the sport and make it better for all.  The common interest is the love of the game, go from there.
