Damn. That is a sad story. He was abandoned by the league after making them a lot of money by putting people in the seats and unknowingly destroying his health while doing it.
You can easily judge the character of a man by the way he treats those who can do nothing for him.

I'm usually on the side of these athletes but c'mon man.At some point you have to take responsibility for yourself.I have borderline high blood pressure.My doctor has told me to lose 15 lbs and cut back salt and booze.I've made the choice to start doing that or pay the consequences.I find it hard to believe this guy didn't have warning signs before it got to this point.I feel sorry for him but he has to accept some of the blame....

You are right. I guess I look at a guy with not much education who was doing what he thought was best for him to make a living. He certainly should have known he was putting his health and future in danger when he kept abusing his body like that. I guess I just hate to see him homeless and broke.
