The NFL Players Association responded in a terse manner to 49ers co-chairman John York, who claimed that a survey done in January that revealed 78% of players do not trust their team doctors was “nonexistent.”
“Coming from the organization that denied Joe Montana’s workers compensation benefits for years, we are not concerned about the remarks about our player survey,” the NFLPA said in a statement. “The day the NFL commits itself to taking care of players who have been injured at work is the day we begin to take these types of comments seriously.”
Not only did the NFLPA refute York’s comment, but they also ripped the 49ers for not paying Montana his workers comp.
I don’t know who is at fault here, but it appears that both sides need to calm down.
