With the opt in/out date deadline on Jan 18th 4 the @NHL #concussion lawsuit I wanted to revisit this breakdown from @SheillaDingus on the red flags of the settlement:

1/ A potential life & death situation is noted, in which the #NHL says “live or die...

advocacyforfairnessinsports.org/nhl-concussion…
we don’t care, just don’t ask us for any money.” Players are instructed to file a claim from the Additional Payment Fund—if they live long enough

2/ The NHL control of testing procedure immediately drew a red flag. It is notable that the cost of testing is NOT included....
in the total value of the settlement but is instead an uncapped fund under COMPLETE control of the NHL

It seems odd that no one to my knowledge has reported this

“In the big picture the cost of these exams is de minimus, particularly when the NHL is in control of these exams”

ALRIGHT Y'ALL, OPERATION: BEST BOOKS OF 2018 THREAD IS LIVE!

Here's how this'll work: Each book I mention will have a blurb, a cover image, buy links from @justonemorepage wherever possible, and a @librofm link if I particularly enjoyed the audiobook.

HERE WE GO BUCKLE UP KIDS
WICKED AND THE WALLFLOWER by @sarahmaclean: My favorite book of the year, and my fave of Sarah's books. Thrilling, passionate, sexy as hell, incredibly moving, and a heroine that is EVERYTHING to me. Do yourself a favor and pick this up immediately.

THE POET X by @AcevedoWrites: This won the NBA for a reason, and it's the same reason I cried on the Metro listening to this audiobook at 9:30 on a Wednesday. Even months later this book gives me chills. Listen to it now.

Yes the Men's semi v Malaysia was a let down, but beyond opportunity for a gold, jingoism and flag waving, India lost something far more valuable and of practical utility: #AsianGames winners get ticket to the Olympics. #hockey
The route available now is long-drawn and littered with banana skins. Here's the fruit salad of competitions India must digest to make it to Tokyo 2020. It's the same for the Men's and the Women's teams, differing of course, only in the rankings #hockey
Out of 12 slots available:
1. Hosts - Japan
2. Asia - Asian Games winners 2018
3. Africa - winner of separate Qualifier, #hockey is dropped from African Games
