Description

An NFL player is injured by another player during a non-play moment in the game. Is it battery? Thousands of former NFL players band together to bring a lawsuit against the NFL asking for compensation for the long-term effects of their head injuries. Who is responsible? Did the players know the risk when they agreed to play? What about youth Pop Warner players who have faced the same level of damage?
