PHILADELPHIA -- A second petition has been filed asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reject the $1 billion settlement of NFL concussion lawsuits because of how it treats current brain injuries versus future ones.The former players who filed the petition complain that chronic traumatic encephalopathy diagnosed before the April 2015 cutoff can bring $4 million while future CTE diagnoses arent compensated. They say that violates Supreme Court rulings that insist each subgroup in a class action settlement be treated fairly.The petition, filed Monday, echoes earlier complaints that the lead players lawyers in 2013 signed with the NFL a quick deal that favored their clients over thousands of others.Lawyers on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee, who negotiated the deal, reject those arguments and say the appeals are holding up payments that ailing retirees need. The NFL declined to comment on Wednesday.The 31 petitioners include a number of men who played for the Dallas Cowboys, including 1996 Super Bowl MVP Larry Brown and Hall of Famer Charles Haley.Washington lawyer Deepak Gupta, who represents them, said the Supreme Court had not reviewed a case involving the disparate treatment of subgroups within a class action case in about 20 years. Meanwhile, he said, the federal appeals court in Philadelphia that upheld the NFL settlement has a different view of the issue than its counterpart in New York. That could pique the Supreme Courts interest.According to the petition, the family of former Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson, who was found to have CTE after his 2011 suicide, can seek an award of up to $4 million while the family of former Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler, whose CTE was diagnosed after his July 2015 death, cannot.CTE, a degenerative disease found in people such as boxers and other athletes whove suffered severe hits to their heads or repeated concussions, currently can be diagnosed only at autopsy, although scientists hope to diagnose it in the living within the next decade.The settlement covers future cases of Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, Lou Gehrigs disease and dementia but not CTE.Seeking to head off a tsunami of future claims, Gupta wrote in the petition, the NFL pushed for a global settlement of all current and future claims -- while compensating only current CTE claims.Supporters of the settlement say it compensates future cases of dementia. But the payout for dementia is expected to average $190,000, compared with $1.44 million for CTE, the petition said.Gupta and other critics also complain the plan does not compensate the depression, mood swings and memory loss they consider precursors to dementia and a CTE diagnosis.The family of former Buffalo Bills fullback Carlton Cookie Gilchrist filed the only other Supreme Court petition. The deadline has now passed. It could be months before the court decides whether to hear the case.The Plaintiffs Steering Committee lawyers on Wednesday pointed to the 3rd U.S. Circuit decision that found the award scheme fair, reasonable and adequate.The Fund is uncapped and inflation adjusted, protecting the interests of those who worry about developing injuries in the future, the judges wrote in April.The settlement would resolve thousands of lawsuits that accuse the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of football concussions. The settlement, overseen by Senior U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody, is designed to cover about 21,000 retirees.

Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. http://www.diamondbacksteamproshop.com/diamondbacks-gregor-blanco-jersey/ . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Fernando Rodney Jersey . The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Paul Goldschmidt Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said.TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have been at their inconsistent best this season. The optimism that surrounded the team at the start of the year was nearly snuffed out by a terrible start. An 11-game winning streak brought some much-needed relief and got people talking again. The 43-45 Blue Jays are hovering near the .500 mark and need a second-half surge to get in the playoff mix in the American League East. This is a team that has as many question marks now as it did in the spring. There have been some big disappointments and some intriguing surprises over the first half of the season. The new-look starting rotation has struggled more often than not. The bullpen -- thought to be a soft point by many observers at the start of the year -- has been dominant. Sluggers Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista are posting big numbers again but too many weak points remain through the lineup. First baseman Adam Lind is enjoying a bounceback year and shortstop Jose Reyes has impressed with the bat and the glove. Injuries have taken a big toll and forced manager John Gibbons to be creative with his lineup. So is this the squad that was among the worst in the major leagues over the first six weeks of the season? Or is it the one that looked as if it couldnt be stopped last month? Its hard to tell. "Well that little run we made in the last few weeks, were resilient, we could have disappeared," Gibbons said in a recent interview. "Were still on that fringe, we can go one way or the other so we need to play good baseball from here on out. "It would have been easy to really just disappear but they didnt do that. They show up to play every day and thats all we can ask for." The rotation looked so deep in early April that there were several candidates for the ace title. However, the performances have been so uneven since that the team doesnt have a clear No. 1 starter. R.A. Dickey has only shown flashes of his Cy Young form. Josh Johnson missed seven weeks with triceps inflammation and has yet to get on track. Mark Buehrle soaks up innings but often allows a lot of earned runs. Brandon Morrow was mediocre before going down with a foreaarm injury and J.ddddddddddddA. Happ saw limited action before taking a liner off the head and injuring his knee. As a result, stop-gap measures on the mound have been the norm. Without the stellar crew of relievers, the Blue Jays would really be in trouble. Closer Casey Janssen has been excellent and left-hander Brett Cecil has posted all-star numbers. Steve Delabars strikeout totals are top flight and Juan Perez and Aaron Loup have also been quite effective. Injuries have been a factor throughout the lineup as well with Reyes and Brett Lawrie of Langley, B.C., missing significant time with ankle injuries. Melky Cabrera has battled hamstring issues all year and his range in left field has been significantly hampered. While the big bats of Bautista and Encarnacion have come through, centre-fielder Colby Rasmus and catcher J.P. Arencibia have yet to fully hit their potential. Munenori Kawasaki was a pleasant surprise as a fill-in for Reyes and outfielder Rajai Davis has been solid but newcomers Emilio Bonifacio and Maicer Izturis still look unsettled. The wild-card race remains a possibility and if the starters give the team a chance, the Blue Jays have the potential to be playing meaningful baseball in September for a change. "We just have to keep the momentum going our way and just focus on whats allowed us to win games and thats been great pitching and timely hitting," Bautista said. The July 31 non-waiver trade deadline is fast approaching. It will be interesting to see if general manager Alex Anthopoulos decides to be a buyer or a seller. Gibbons remains optimistic that his team -- which is 10 games out of first place in the AL East and 5 1/2 games back in the wild-card race -- can still move up the division standings. "Weve got to play better than we did in the first half but I expect us to stay in this thing," he said. "But weve got to be solid. Weve got to get really good starting pitching and weve got to swing the bats. "We really like where our bullpen is at but it all starts on the mound with our starting rotation. If they pitch good, weve got a shot." Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys From China ' ' '
