Eric LeGrand 'hurt' by Rutgers' failure to explain commencement speech decision | NJ.com

In the meantime, shouldn't the state compensate LeGrand for his disability?  

Aren't athletes entitled to long term disability insurance instead of depending on charity?

Noah, I have wondered this myself. I do not know what the current situation is regarding disability insurance. Everyone wants to talk about the NCAA paying players but I say take care of them first. I mean, we're worried about paying Terrelle Pryor but we aren't concerned with the livelihood of disabled athletes?

NCAA needs to provide substantial coverage for disabilities and pay for treatment for as long as needed. All male and female athletes, not just football.

Pretty sorry that they reneged on the offer.

As for his compensation. I didn't read anything in the story saying he wasn't being cared for by the state and/or the university, or that he was depending on charity.

As far as I know, most athletes that participate in sports that have pro leagues get disability insurance as soon as they get to college; especially if they have pro aspirations.

And, of course, he was probably automatically eligible for SSA and SSI.
