NFL | Seven players suing NFL and NFLPA

Margaret Cronin Fisk, of Bloomberg News, reports seven present and former professional football players have sued the NFL and the NFLPA, claiming the organizations recommended unfit financial advisers that caused them to lose $20 million. Both organizations approved the services of Kirk Wright and Nelson Keith Bond, heads of the bankrupt hedge fun International Management Associates LLC, without doing background checks, the players said June 23 in a federal court suit in Atlanta. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the claims are unfounded and added, "We will review the matter with our attorneys and look forward to responding as directed by the court." The plaintiffs are former NFL S Steve Atwater, S Blaine Bishop, DL Marco Coleman, CB Ray Crockett, DL Clyde Simmons and LB Al Smith. New York Giants LB Carlos Emmons is the only active player involved in the lawsuit.
