I don't know if the NFL did get off "cheap," there probably is solid evidence NFL covered up what it knew about concussions and had dirty hands that resulted in players going back into the game too soon.
But the major problem with the lawsuit is if the players even knew the correct information, would they have listened/changed behavior?
I don't think its cheap when you factor in comparative negligence/assumed risk (that the players were knowingly putting themselves at risk).
Anyways, hopefully the players can get some proper treatment and see some improvement.
