Several former NFL players have recently filed a lawsuit against the NFL claiming that the league doctors improperly prescribed them painkillers. The athletes now claim that they have endured lasting drug addictions because the league did not provide adequate warnings about the drugs.

Arthur explained that while the NFL has an employer/employee relationship with the athletes, they must provide safe working conditions for the athletes. However, the biggest issue is how the athletes are going to prove that the league doctors did not provide warnings. Many of the athletes are claiming that the drugs were prescribed in the 80's. Finding records and doctor witnesses will be a challenge over 30 years later.
