Players Association tells the league to put their money where their mouths are.
"The issue of player safety is bigger than just hits on Sunday," Smith said in the statement. "Players understand the difference between aggressive, split-second actions and dangerous play. In addition to this sudden new emphasis on player safety, players call on the NFL to fulfill its obligation to health care in a lockout, end nasty litigation against nearly 300 players' workers compensation cases and stop saying 'no' to the disability benefits of NFL legends.
Reaffirms my belief that the owners don't care what happens with the players once they can't play anymore and really just passes these rules so the league doesn't lose it's money-making offensive stars.
