True, and I understand your love of contracts now but you can't contract out of fraud and the attempt will open a counterclaim that the CBA negotiations were not undertaken in good faith if negotiated with an eye on this outcome.

Any thoughts on why the NFL would have picked Pellman if they really wanted the best answers medical science could provide? Does it not appear, just appear, to you that the NFL wanted a certain answer so they picked the guys to give it to them? Sure others do that too - tobacco etc...but it being old hat doesn't make it right. What do you think on the merits here.

All generalizations are dangerous.
