Raiders Game Jerseys
October 11 2018 Raiders Game Jerseys
Lawyers for the NFL urged a federal judge Wednesday to appoint a special investigator to look into what the league said is extensive fraud in claims on the $1 billion concussion settlement.

NFL attorneys said a study by the independent auditors in the claims process showed about 440 claims were flagged for denial based on evidence of fraud by attorneys Raiders Game Jerseys , doctors or former players. Lawyers representing the former players and their estates said most of the opportunity for fraud has been resolved because anyone filing a claim after the settlement’s effective date has to see a neuro-specialist from a list of approved certified physicians.

The settlement, which took effect January 2017, resolved thousands of lawsuits that accused the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of repeated concussions.

It covers retired players who develop Lou Gehrig’s disease, dementia or other neurological problems believed to be caused by concussions suffered during their pro careers, with awards as high as $5 million for the most serious cases.

”We are talking about significant evidence of widespread fraud. We’re not talking about a difference in medical opinion,” said NFL attorney Richard Tarlowe.

Tarlowe showed evidence in fraud designations against eight doctors, two law firms and a former player. He focused on practices including doctors seeing players for evaluation not in clinical settings, but in hotel rooms, law offices or other places. He also cited a doctor who said she spent seven to 12 hours evaluating each patient, but approved sometimes as many as eight patients a day.

”That’s physically impossible based on how long she said it takes,” he said.

Three different attorneys who represent dozens of claimants spoke for the former players Wednesday. Two said they objected to the appointment of a special investigator with subpoena power and the ability to compel testimony.

They said the current structure is more than adequate for identifying fraud and not paying out claims. They also said the rules that became effective in January 2017 including the approved physicians list will greatly reduce the opportunity for fraudulent claims.

League lawyers said investigating the fraud claims has contributed to the slower determinations and awarding of money for legitimate claims. Plaintiffs’ attorneys have said the settlement process is moving too slowly.

The claims administrators confirmed Wednesday that more than $300 million has been paid out from about $439 million that has been awarded through the claims process- nearly three times the expected amount for the first year of the settlement.

They also said they have the ability to determine if a claim is fraudulent and flag it for denial. The power of a special investigator would be to determine if there was purposeful intent behind the fraudulent claims.

Tarlowe said if intent is determined, cases could be referred to the Department of Justice Ryan Suter Jersey , lawyers and doctors could be turned in to professional ethics panels and lose their ability to practice or other punitive measures might be taken.

Judge Anita Brody said she had only seen one case of fraud against a former player out of almost 20,000 possible claimants who registered.

”To be clear we are talking mostly about the doctors and lawyers in these cases,” she said.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Saquon Barkley is everything the New York Giants expected, and then some.

The running back from Penn State who was the second overall pick in the draft is humble, immensely skilled, inquisitive and quite possibly the most popular guy on the team in terms of fan interest.

Forget that the Giants have Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. on the field. When Barkley touches the ball, there is a marked increase in the level of excitement, with ”oohs” and ”aahs” coming from the stands. And that was just at the opening of training camp practice.

If there is any doubt about the amount of hope the rookie has generated after a 3-13 season, look at the number of fans wearing his No. 26 jersey. It is already among the highest-selling NFL jerseys, and Barkley has not played a down as a pro.

Barkley smiled Friday when asked if he was starting to feel like a veteran heading into his second day of practice.

”Far from a veteran. Just excited, living the dream Packers Cheap Jerseys ,” he said. ”I’m a New York Giant, playing football. I’ve been wanting to do this since I was a little kid, to play in the NFL. Just attacking every single day, trying to get better.”

Barkley admitted playing in front of packed stands at the Giants’ headquarters was an awesome, new experience.

”Like you said, saw a lot of 26 jerseys in the stands, saw my family,” he said. ”I got to see my family after, I was able to sign for kids after also, and that becomes part of the game. You don’t do it for the fans, but you play for the fans also, too Authentic Connor McDavid Jersey , and you want to come out there and practice your heart out, and just for them being out there showing love and support, it means a lot to me.”

On the field, Barkley is all business. Whenever he sees something he doesn’t understand, he talks to Manning or fellow running back Jonathan Stewart.

”I’ve been like that since I was a little kid,” Barkley said. ”My mom and dad used to say I used to ask them questions like, `Why this, why that, why this, why that?’ That’s just the approach that I take, and I’m always going to have, even when – God willing – I play 10 years in this league. Asking questions is how you figure it out.”

Barkley said his ambition is simple. He wants to be the best player he can possibly be to help the team win.

If there is a concern about what he can do this season Ryan Grant Jersey , it revolves around the offensive line. It was dreadful last season and has been rebuilt with the free-agent additions of tackle Nate Solder and guard Patrick Omameh, the drafting of rookie guard Will Hernandez in the second round and the shift of Ereck Flowers from left to right tackle. Jon Halapio has replaced Brett Jones at center.

”As a running back it’s your job to set up the blocks, your job to hit the hole square, put your head down and make that guy miss,” Barkley said, noting that much of his film study is centered on how the NFL’s top backs help their linemen.

Barkley also adds the second option of being able to catch passes and use his breakaway speed to go long distances.

Giants co-owner John Mara said Thursday that Barkley has generated possibility even more interest than future Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor did when he joined the team in 1981.

”In speaking to him and watching how he conducts himself, I think he is able to handle that, so I feel good about that,” Mara said. ”But still, you know I’ve used this line a million times before – let’s not get him ready for Canton just yet, let’s let him play some games first.”
