    The teams in this sport should compensate their players, because of the fact that this sport is very physical, and there is a high risk that players will get injured. Even though these players can pay the treatments for their injuries, their teams and the league should still be liable for it.

    Players of any kind of contact sport should know their rights as regards worker’s compensation benefits. The potential for injury is high for people engaging in these kinds of sports. In addition to safety gear, it is also a good idea to invest in some form of insurance to protect them against any eventuality.

    They have to fight for their benefits, despite the fact that they’re famous football players. American football is a very dangerous sport, even with the heavy safety gear. That is why they should also receive benefits and insurances. That way, they won’t have any problems if they get injured.
