    Until I read this, I was a Bruce Matthews fan. If you look up the amount of money he made while playing in the NFL, it is sickening. He made over $40 million in the NFL, yet wants workers compensation benefits?! He is still a very highly paid coach in TN and has medical insurance as well.

    You can use the above link to see how much he made in his playing days, or any player in the NFL for that matter. Want to know what is wrong with society? How about a guy who has made over $40 million, still has a salary in the $400,000 per year range including full benefits, and he files a workers comp claim. Really?! I applaud CA for this decision.

    He played 19 years in the NFL! If you play professional football for that long I am sure you will have some soreness and pain. Football is a violent game and he knew the risks. I am tired of all the political correctness out there with football now. It is a violent game and you might get hurt. Nobody is holding a gun to the players heads forcing them to play for more money than they could make anywhere else. I love football and I am afraid that the game I grew up watching and the game that I love is gone for good thanks to people like Matthews and others.

    Are they not Contract Employees? Kick him out of the hall or at least move him to the wall of shame. Greedy SOB he is. Hopoe Tenn cans his butt and they bar him from the NFl for life. Pete Rose his butt.
