If that response is directed at me, then your are missing the point BIM. One of the greatest players the NFL has ever seen has trouble getting his legitimate benefits from the NFL. What does that mean for the average player who plays three years and makes 1.1 million and has less than 20K left when they bust out of the league? These guys do not qualify for the pension and Full medical plan that Montana has.
He has full benefits and has to sue the NFL to get them to pay what is his. The average player does not, and getting the league to pay for Workman's Comp after they have been "cleared" by team physicians is almost Impossible. That is why injury settlements occur. And the players, lose a ton of money in doing that.
I hope you never have to deal with Workman's Comp BIM. It sucks. And, if your employer wants to stick it to you, you have to sue them to get them to do what is right.
