Ex-NFL players team up to sue league over brain injuries

It is definitely one of the top most violent sports in this country. Along with football comes tackle after tackle. And helmets and all of that padding sometimes is not enough. Specifically, a group of former NFL players blame the helmet manufacturer Riddell for supplying them with helmets that didn't effectively protect them.

But the ex-players are not only going after Riddell; the 75 of them are also suing the league, claiming that officials did not provide players with enough warning about or treatment for the long-term effects of the rough play in the game. The players involved in this personal injury suit allege that they suffer from various serious symptoms of brain injury, due to concussions they sustained while playing in the NFL.
