So we're talking just about player safety now in accordance with the NFL and not athletes going broke because of personal decision making right? You seemed to lump the previous two together in your statement before last, which prompted my last response.

I never placed blame or praised one side. That seemed to be you:

For your point of view, from what I understand, the blame goes all to the players. I simply implied that it wasn't one sided.
