TSL Sports Talk- Eric Dickerson On Player Benefits And HOF Protest

On Tuesday, our Rob Parker broke the story about the letter issued by Pro Football Hall of Famers detailing the demand for player benefits and compensation and a possible strike at next year’s Hall of Fame ceremony. Today we follow that up with an exclusive with the man who facilitated that letter, Eric Dickerson, and he gives us more exclusives and clarity about the movement and what’s really going on with retired players.

From horrendous on field conditions, like concrete surfaces under the fields, to the undiagnosed, untreated and hidden horrors of concussions and CTE, Dickerson details what former players faced and are now suffering from, including lack of health insurance and pensions. It’s a must listen to interview, one that should open your eyes to the harsh reality of sports.
