      Many NFL players end up with neither fame or a lot of money.

      You're statement is too general, however there is a class action law suit out there signed by many former players that says the NFL know about CTE and has tried to cover it up.

      I have even heard of high school age players having signs of CTE

      Aaron Hernandez had stage 3 CTE and he was like 27 years old.

        The number of high school football players who break their necks is still disturbingly high.
        Hail Homer! Blessed is he among men and blessed is the fruit of his loins Bart.

          Obviously, there no guarantee for fame or fortune, um hello. If your a pro player, your making at least $3m a year. Fortune for any

            It's not just football either. Not long ago a kid was paralyzed from the neck down during a HS wrestling match: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/high-sc...-after-injury/. It's rare--this is the first time it's been seen AFAIK--but it does happen.

              Minimum salary for an NFL player is around $500,000 a year. Yes it's a lot of money compared to the average Joe but the average no. of years in the league is less than 4. This hardly constitutes a "fortune".
              Workin' for the woman with money in her hand.

                $500,000 for three years is $1.5 million before taxes, say $1 million clear. Maybe not a "fortune" but I could get by for a while on that.

                  Understandable, but it's not even that good.
                  feds get a cut, the state gets a cut, SS gets a cut, Medicare gets a cut.

                  Remember you will not pay taxes on the 500k as there are some exemption you can take.


                  About 864,000 for 3 years.

                  But even if you don't pay, you get some pretty fine seats on game day.


                  Ever wonder what William "The Fridge Perry" does now?
                  Well he lives in assisted living house, on a monthly disability ss check.

                  Sports Illustrated once estimated that 78% of NFL players end up broke or under financial stress after they retire.


                  I know a guy that was bound for the pros in baseball. I worked with his dad who is know retired. Anyway something happened and the kid was selling sneakers at the local sporting good stuff. I asked the dad about his son and he is doing well. Seems he and his a buddy started a van business that hauls addicts back and forth to rehab for pee tests.

                    Plus, brain trauma is much more serious to a teenagers brain. They are lowering their IQs when they need their brains the most.
