Its obvious the former montreal player being refered to is Hefney
that Hefney injury was brutal. i was watching that game. it not only ended his career but basically was the beginning of his downward to eventual prison, where he is now. the surgeries he required were unreal.
Agree i read about his story / the injury . Cflpa have improved benefits since then i'm pretty sure
they have somewhat. but of course could still be better given the short length of the average pro football career (applies to both leagues, but more the CFL).
After a career-ending injury, then time in prison, ex-CFL player Jonathan Hefney is finding peace in life | Ottawa Citizen speaking of hefney just found this recent article which even talks about the improvements to cflpa benefits
yea i saw that story yesterday. i still think the CFLPA needs to push the league for more post-career benefits in the next CBA.
