The National Football League’s popularity has far exceeded the expectations of the league’s forefathers and that popularity now benefits the players, owners and many, many businesses directly or indirectly tied to the NFL. Yet many of the game’s pioneering players were unable to capitalize on their respective contributions because the economics of the sport were an insignificant fraction of what they are today.
Sadly, many who helped make the game what it is now have not only been forgotten, they’ve also suffered severe physical and financial hardships as a result of their bodily sacrifices. Some have had to liquidate all that they own including their homes, to stave off mounting medical bills.
But now, you can help and in doing so not only can you make a meaningful contribution, you could win a new car.
Toyota is providing the Baltimore Football Club with an All-New 2009 Toyota Matrix to be raffled off for the sole benefit of raising funds for the less fortunate Colts and other NFL Players in need. Raffle tickets are $10 and can be purchased at HelpOldNFLPlayers.com. The drawing is December 26 at 9pm and only 5,000 tickets will be sold. Raffle Rules can be found HERE.
We hope that you can contribute in a small way.
