Powerful stuff. Especially when he and his wife comment that it will likely only get worse. She states that she knows she will end up as his "caregiver." Then he says that all he can do is "apologize in advance." Chilling.
The NFL has to come up with health care for these guys. I get that they made good money for awhile. It looked like Leroy has a nice house, etc. However, he couldn't hold a job b/c of neck and back pain and now he has this memory loss w/o health insurance. Is he supposed to brankrupt himself seeking medical treatment? How many of these guys set aside the money necessary to deal with that kind of a condition?
As part of my job I have to understand the costs of retiree health care. I am fully aware that the costs to insure NFL retirees will be really, really high. They retiree early and have lots of health care needs. But I really don't care. The League has to do something for these guys. There is a whole new generation right behind them. (As a Lion's fan, this made me very concerned for Best.)
