Last quote by Thomas Demetrio

Unfortunately these players don't die on the playing field in a sudden-death fashion. They die a horrible death later in life, and leading up to in many cases, suicide. This is not a badge of honor for the gladiator who played 13 years in the NFL or two weeks. It's a real problem. The macho, tough-guy mentality has to change.feedback

We have to figure out, United has to figure out, the airline industry has to figure out what do we do? We take money from people, we let them sit on the airplane, seat belted, are we really going to just start taking them off then? Is that what we want as a society?feedback

Are we going to continue to just be treated like cattle? Bullied? Rude treatment? People have asked me, Well, why don't you just file the lawsuit?
