CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: PRO FOOTBALL TALK’s Mike Florio wrote as government “often does when trying to fix a longstanding problem, California may end up going so far in the other direction that an equally unjust outcome arises.” It is “one thing to erase opportunities for abuse; it’s quite another to push the pendulum too far in the other direction, limiting and eliminating otherwise legitimate claims.” Florio: “Here’s hoping that the legislators focus on crafting a fair outcome, and not simply the outcome that the NFL and other leagues are able to finagle” (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 5/3).
