HEALTH CARE REFORM: In an op-ed piece for the N.Y. TIMES, author Stefan Fatsis lists six changes the NFLPA "should insist on in the next contract." These changes includes that team doctors and trainers "should no longer be employed by" individual teams, doctors "should inform players about injuries before they tell any club officials" and players "should be able to view their medical records whenever they want." Teams also should be "required to report every injury," grievance procedures "should be reformed" and payments to injured players "should be excluded from payrolls" (N.Y. TIMES, 10/12).
