In addition to the "correction" for "double-dipping" which will deduct whatever Social Security award players might receive from their NFL disability checks, there are other provisions equally if not more concerning.
First, to clarify, while some disabled players receive as much as $11,500 per month in disability pay and likely receive about $2,000 from Social Security Disability, this is very much on the high end. Others are only getting around $3,000 per month and about $1,200 in SSD.
This would be devastating to the players on the lower end of the scale, reducing them to about $1,800 per month. Beyond this, the new CBA seeks to begin eliminating SSD determinations as automatic approval.

actual thread image of “slave” woman in #nfl #SuperBowl halftime show by @shakira to Arab music

Empowering (Muslim) women = microfinance to female entrepreneurs

not here to defend religion
however, Muslim women have ALWAYS had the right to own wealth/property & run businesses
If you fund women
AND stop funding warlords (increase safety)
AND invest in education and infrastructure

we can actually save our own darn selves, thank you very much…
My dad may not be a Nobel prize laureate like Muhammad Yunus who pioneered microfinance

like @Yunus_Centre my dad grew up in the village

walked 6 miles to school (boat in monsoon season)

Now, I’m a Harvard grad @HarvardChanSPH and @AKUGlobal grad

A #Browns thread on the Andrew Berry hiring...
1. From what I understand, the #Browns offered the GM position to Berry late last week and the two sides went to work on the contract. The 5-year deal dialing in the same length as HC Kevin Stefanski was of chief importance to Cleveland - making sure the two were tied together.
2. I've been told by a #Browns team source that even before #Vikings exec George Paton pulled out of the process, it was essentially unanimous inside the building that Berry was the right choice for this job and situation. That said, Paton definitely impressed in his interviews.

Also lieber @_Maspo , ich schaue mir wirklich viele Dinge zum Thema American Football an und bin froh das es neben dem GP, DAZN und anderen Networks auch #ranNFL gibt. Wenn mich das schauen von diesem Format zu keinem "echten Football Fan" macht, dann bin ich keiner! 1/x
Sicher hast du recht, das #ranNFL und #rannflsüchtig keine Formate sind, die auf Hardcore Football Fans ausgelegt sind und einigen Content nebenher bieten. Aber der Fokus des Formats ist die Präsentation des American Football in Deutschland. 2/x
Neben dem Sport, der dort Übertragen wird hat es halt einige Nebengeräusche und diese haben einige nette Nebeneffekte. So haben sich über den Hashtag #ranNFL viele Menschen gefunden, die Heute in Fantasy Football Ligen, Podcasts, WA Gruppen oder Fan Clubs gemeinsam.... 3/x

2020 in the business of sport? Consider this A to Z thread of things to keep an eye on as your cheat sheet for a new year. #sportsbiz
A - ATP Cup: Men’s #tennis has yet another team event joining its cluttered calendar to sit alongside the Davis Cup and Laver Cup, as the politics of the sport play out in public. The ATP’s new management have lots to do - hopefully it includes developing a mixed team tournament.
B - Budapest: Quietly and confidently emerging as Europe’s latest major events host, with a trio of @EURO2020 games, the expanded @FedCup finals in April and the start of May’s @giroditalia making this a big year. An Olympic host in the 2030s?

Rut roh......There's a press conference going on now (though looks like I missed some of it) - FBI and DOJ announced indictments against former #NFL players for defrauding an NFL health care program.

I found an article about it here:

A total of 10 former NFL players were charged in a $3.9 Million scheme to submit false claims to an NFL healthcare program.…
Ahhh, more DME fraud. They claimed reimbursements for expensive DME that was never purchased.

A few things triggered the move of the Kaepernick workout:

1.) There was a significant problem with the type of waiver #NFL requested. Kaepernick agreed to sign a normal Pro Day injury waiver. NFL asked for a more complex waiver with clauses about non-guarantees of employment.
2.) Kaepernick’s camp requested to tape the workout alongside the #NFL’s crew. They didn’t trust the NFL being the only ones with the tape. Kaepernick wanted it taped and released in its entirety to teams and the public after the workout. The NFL refused to allow them to tape it.
3.) When #NFL refused to allow Kaepernick to tape the workout and control their own copy, Kaepernick asked that media be allowed into the workout to view/record the session. NFL said no. That’s when Kaepernick felt the league refused to be transparent and asked to change venues.

Pretemporada en la #NFL, momento ver los nuevos esquemas, y anoche, Vic Fangio ya nos enseñó un aperitivo de lo que será la nueva identidad de la DEF de los Broncos, el Split Coverage/Match Parttern.
Normalmente los equipos juegan defensas zonales (C3, C2) o defensas al hombre (C1, C2 Man, etc..).

Y luego, los equipos que innovan, los que buscan renovarse, están jugando defensas mixtas/híbridas, las cuales combinan las 2 anteriores para intentar minimizar sus debilidades.
Os dejo un enlace, donde @NFL_DougFarrar hace un espectacular ejercicio de como las ofensivas están dominando a las defensivas, y que alternativas o nuevos esquemas defensivos pueden darle la vuelta a la situación…

Does the woodpecker-inspired #Qcollar protect the brain & prevent #concussion?

Take 3 minutes to read this fully referenced thread presenting evidence that a jugular compression collar is unlikely to keep athletes safe

Please SHARE, help inform others!

The #Qcollar is based on the idea that jugular compression increases blood in the brain to create a "bubble wrap" effect, which prevents the it from bouncing around inside the skull.

According to the company, this mechanism is found in Nature.

From the company's promotional video, the device is justified based on reducing brain "slosh" by:

1) Replicating the animal adaptations (see 18:00 in video)
3) Replicating effects of "higher altitude" exposure (see 21:57, again at 36:00)

1/ How many times did you have to hear about #Bitcoin before you were ready to acquire some or, at least, explore its significance? This number of "touchpoints" is an important factor in the process of Bitcoin's monetization.

Let's explore the idea of touchpoints in a thread: 👇
2/ We now know that the process of #Bitcoin's monetization is occurring in a series of hype cycles where the magnitude of each cycle is defined by the people "reachable" in that cycle. Which people defined the prior cycles? 👇

3/ The first hype cycle in the #Bitcoin market was dominated by cryptographers and cypherpunks who were already primed to understand the importance of Satoshi Nakamoto's groundbreaking invention.

#NFL Concussion Settlement Special Masters have issued a report this morning which appears to be the first of three. The Claims Admin report has also dropped by the BAP Admin report hasn't as of yet.
SM Report PDF:…
I didn't see anything particularly earth-shattering in the Special Masters' report but there were a few items of interest.
The Special Masters' report on appeals underscores the importance of Judge Brody's ruling which substantially changed the balances in the settlement when she authorized AAP review on the front end. As you can see, the appellee has prevailed in most instances.

Judge Brody just denied the @LocksLawFirm / Class Counsel Motion for Reconsideration of MAF rules in the #NFL Concussion Settlement. This is a devastating blow to retired NFL players.
Herein lies a problem, when MDL judges are given absolute authority. While the "administrative" rules absolutely alter the settlement and place the checks and balances in favor of the NFL, she finds it within her authority to do so.
This order in no way "protects" the class, and this is not an "enforcement of terms" but a re-write of terms without notice to the class or an ability to opt out as supposedly required by FRCP Rule 23 governing class action settlements.

"In so far as the agreements allowed the companies to collect funds from class members only after they’d received funds from the claims administrator, the panel reversed Judge Brody’s order in one appeal involving RD Legal Funding."
Curious statement from Seeger, in that he seems pleased that funders cannot seek to collect from the NFL, while they can seek to collect from class members after awards are paid. It does appear, however, that he plans to continue to drain the common benefit despite the 3CA ruling
More on the funders' ruling from @MMitchellTLI…
