I guess you have that sort of analogy with other jobs though, ie "if you're a truck driver there's a chance you're gonna fall asleep at the wheel, deal with it", "if you're a bricklayer there's a chance you're gonna root your back, deal with it" and so on.Surely there's some sort've accountability on the player for signing up to the sport to the first place. If you're stupid and play sport there's am obvious chance you might get knocked in the head and become stupider
Those jobs offer a lot of compo, does the AFL? Apparently not, "At the moment what they [the AFL] are doing is not working. How they've been able to get away with that for so long is what we are about — hockey and cricket offer workers' compensation," he said."
We can use the whole "well players get paid a lot" but I can't imagine Barnes and a lot of other players for that matter retiring super rich; and even in Oz quality care for this kinda stuff is damned expensive.
