PHILADELPHIA - A lead scientist studying the brains of deceased athletes with brain trauma has criticized the proposed NFL concussion settlement, because it would not compensate retirees who exhibit mood swings, aggression, depression or other aberrant behaviour. Philadelphia Phillies Store .Boston University researcher Robert Stern said that many of the 76 deceased NFL players found to have the brain decay known as CTE would not have qualified for awards had they lived. Some never developed the dementia, Alzheimers and other neurological problems covered in the minimum $765 million settlement.CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, can cause either cognitive or behavioural disorders, or both, according to Sterns research, which includes interviews with the families of 33 deceased athletes. The behavioural and mood problems can include violence, social isolation, drug overdoses and suicide, Stern wrote in a court affidavit this week.Thats what started the whole discussion (of NFL concussions) and its not compensated, Stern told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday. Repetitive hits to the head do not lead to Alzheimers disease. They lead to CTE, if anything.A federal judge in Philadelphia plans to weigh final objections to the settlement next month. However, the nearly 20,000 retired players eligible must decide whether to opt out by next week.I dont want to play an adversarial role, Stern said. I want a settlement to go through, I just dont want a settlement to go through without people understanding what it truly means.In his affidavit, Stern, of the Boston University Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, noted that individuals with impaired mood and behaviour can still experience devastating changes in their lives, even without significant cognitive impairment.(They include) ... the inability to maintain employment, homelessness, social isolation, domestic abuse, divorce, substance abuse, excessive gambling, poor financial decision-making, and death from accidental drug overdose or suicide, he wrote.The NFL would pay $765 million under the plan to fund claims over the next 65 years, and more if needed. The individual awards would reach $1 million to $5 million for the most severe neurological problems, such as Lou Gehrigs disease or Parkinsons disease. The average award for moderate dementia or Alzheimers disease is likely to be $190,000.The settlement also provides up to $4 million for CTE-linked deaths through July 7, when Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody granted preliminary approval. However, they will not be covered in the future, in part out of concerns about financially-motivated suicides.CTE can only be diagnosed after death at the moment, although Stern expects that to change within five to 10 years.The proposed class-action settlement, which may cost the NFL an additional $112 million in plaintiffs lawyer fees, followed more than a year of negotiations between the NFL and the lead players lawyers.Lead players lawyers Christopher Seeger and Sol Weiss on Wednesday again called the deal an extraordinary settlement for retired NFL players and their families a€” from those who suffer with neurocognitive illnesses today, to those who are currently healthy but fear they may develop symptoms decades into the future.Only nine ex-players have formally opted out of the settlement, signalling they will pursue individual lawsuits against the NFL. Lawyers representing hundreds of others have raised various concerns about the deal a€” especially given the NFLs nearly $10 billion in annual revenues. Some have asked Brody to extend Tuesdays opt-out deadline.Stern attached his concerns to an objection filed this week by seven former players represented by lawyer Stephen Molo.CTE is the industrial disease of football, Molo said, and CTE goes effectively uncompensated in this entire sham of a deal.

Cheap Phillies Jerseys .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final. https://www.cheapphilliesjerseys.us/ . - The Clippers have signed guard Dahntay Jones to a second 10-day contract.Arsene Wenger praised Arsenals spirit after they climbed above Tottenham to finish second in the Premier League following a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa on the final day. Before kick-off the equation was simple for Wengers men, who needed to pick up all three points against bottom of the table Villa and hope Newcastle could beat Spurs. An Olivier Giroud hat-trick and an own goal from Mark Bunn handed the Gunners victory and after Spurs demise at St James Park, Arsenal finished runners up for the first time since 2005.The win, coupled with Tottenhams capitulation at Newcastle, also means Arsenal have not finished below their neighbours since 1995. Arsene Wenger said second place was reward for Arsenals spirirt It was difficult to predict, especially a few weeks ago, but we kept our togetherness, our spirit, Wenger told Sky Sports.I think its now 10 games without defeat and thats reward for our spirit, our mentality and also for our quality.Arsenal had entered 2016 top of the table and looking in good shape to claim their first title in 12 years.However, their title challenge fell away after a difficult second half to the season but Wenger was keen to praise champions Leicester. Arsenal players mob Mikel Arteta to celebrate their fourth goal We had a difficult second part to our season because we had many difficult away games, Wenger said.We had to go to Tottenham, to Man City, to Manchester United and to Liverpool so I knew our position was a bit artificial in December. We needed an exceptional second part to the season and we didnt deliver that, but overall we finished second in the league and you have to congratulate Leicester.They lost only three games and two against us. Overall, they have been exceptional. Barcelona and Real Madrid lost more games in Europe. Its difficult to explain it but it is a fact.Meanwhile, Arsenals victory against Villa saw Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky bid farewell to the club and Wenger insists the midfield pair will be missed in the dreessing room. Phillies Jerseys 2019. Arsenals squad gave the departing Tomas Rosicky a guard of honour as he said farewell to the fans It was very emotional, Wenger said. They are two exceptional players, two leaders as well and they are extremely well respected in the dressing room.Well miss that because they have weight in the dressing room.Every manager knows its important to have this kind of spiritual quality in the dressing room and they were exceptional players but they had exceptional spirit as well. Olivier Giroud scored a hat-trick in Arsenals 4-0 win Looking ahead to next season, Wenger revealed he will look to add two to three players to his squad in the summer as they look to win a first title since 2004.He said: Well try to keep the squad together and then strengthen with two or three more players.Weve lost Danny Welbeck for nine months, so I count it for the season. That means we need one more offensive player but well try to add three players to the squad.
