NFL Hall of Famers speak out against poor benefits
Question of the Day
WASHINGTON (AP) - A group of NFL Hall of Famers is backing a class-action lawsuit against the NFL, demanding better benefits for former players.
Defensive end Carl Eller is one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. He says the league has not done what is “fair and right” in supporting the financial and medical concerns of former players.
He was joined at the National Press Club on Monday by Lem Barney, Elvin Bethea, Paul Krause and Joe DeLamielleure, among others.
The former players want their concerns considered in any forthcoming deal between the locked-out players and NFL owners.
Eller says “football is a game; life is not.” He adds: “We are suffering from the game.”
