NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith and Pro Football Hall of Fame President David Baker, along with 20 other Hall of Famers, signed a letter insisting that they deserve more benefits out of being inducted into the museum.
Brooks is a member of the Hall of Fame Board. For instance, a baseball player who spends one day in the majors gets health insurance for the rest of their life, while someone on a roster for 43 days gets a pension.
The letter goes on to state that players "sacrificed our bodies" to help build the National Football League, but many Hall of Famers are struggling physically and financially. To build this game, we sacrificed our bodies. We write to demand two things: "Health insurance and annual salary for all Hall of Famers that includes a share of league revenue".
"The total cost for every Hall of Famer to have health insurance is less than $4 million - less than that of a 30-second Super Bowl ad, or about 3 cents for every $100 the league generates in revenue". It also raised the subject of the construction of a $1 billion Hall of Fame Village in Canton, Ohio.
The NFL earned an estimated $14 billion in revenue during its 2017 league year, according to multiple reports, more than any of the four major US sports leagues. "Our long careers left us especially vulnerable to the dangers of this violent sport, especially those intentionally hidden from us", reads the letter.
Liverpool-PSG (2-1) — Résultat (mi-temps)
Liverpool sera en tout cas un sacré morceau pour des Parisiens pas encore toujours souverain dans le jeu. Mais après tout, si ça peut lui servir pour la suite de la compétition, ce n'est peut-être pas plus mal.
The Hall of Fame Board consists of Pro Football Hall of Famers and they are seeking what they feel will help the greats of the game live a fulfilling life. "Yet the league always seems to have plenty of money for other priorities", the letter said, noting that Goodell earns $40 million annually under the terms of his recent contract extension. Why should *only* Hall of Famers be eligible, instead of the ordinary joe that did his job in the league for a decade and retired without honors?
"The time has come for us to be treated as part of a game we've given so much to", the letter states.
The players noted that they will not attend next year's Hall of Fame induction ceremony, which would fall under the NFL's 100th anniversary.
The players say there has been a deliberate attempt to divide active and retired players.
