Steve Silverman: NFL Training & Locker Rooms Are Drug Markets
Attorney Steve Silverman, who is representing NFL players such as Jim McMahon, Richard Dent, and others in the class action lawsuit against the NFL, joins the show.
He accuses the NFL of knowingly giving players pain pills and other types of narcotics. Mr. Silverman addresses why this lawsuit is happening, why he feels the players were taken advantage of and lied to by doctors during their career, and why many of them felt that they were not able to just say no.
Attorney Steve Silverman also makes allegations that NFL training rooms have become drug markets and how refers to the locker room as the drug cartel. “The NFL is going to have to change the game and that they have no choice. We are not talking about player responsibility we are talking about a drug cartel.” said Silverman.
