    Haha! It's ok. We covered the bases. That may be a first!

    So Carolina's luck is not a new phenomena? :)

    The way I heard that story was that the UNC punter, realizing that the oncoming rush was going to squash him like a bug, threw the ball into the air and ran from the field screaming like a little girl. Luckily for UNC, a teammate caught the ball thrown away in panic and scored. So UNC "invented" the forward pass in the same way Isaac Newton invented gravity by letting an apple fall on his head. :)

    think would be needed to teach them a lesson. Skipping all that lets just grant that they will get something. Most likely this will NEVER go to trial. They will settle. Part of the agreement will be a certain amount of future money allocated to each player for future health care, etc. Let us say that this is 150K. That is likely a very low number. This is what will effect NCAA fb. Why would that number be any different for each NCAA fb player? Could your school or any school afford to spend that amount of money for every player? Doubt it.

    The NFL will certainly survive this.
    College football may not.

    Addressing your earlier quote, now that it is a class action suit, there will only be one lawsuit.
