  PHILADELPHIA -- A federal judge is slowing down the proposed US$765 million settlement of NFL concussion claims, questioning if theres enough money to cover 20,000 retired players. Andrew Desjardins Jersey . U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody denied preliminary approval of the plan on Tuesday because shes worried the money could run out sooner than expected. She also raised concerns that anyone who gets concussion damages from the NFL would be barred from suing the NCAA or other amateur football leagues. "I am primarily concerned that not all retired NFL football players who ultimately receive a qualifying diagnosis or their (families) ... will be paid," the judge wrote. The proposed settlement, negotiated over several months, is designed to last at least 65 years. The awards would vary based on an ex-players age and diagnosis. A younger retiree with Lou Gehrigs disease would get $5 million, those with serious dementia cases would get $3 million and an 80-year-old with early dementia would get $25,000. Retirees without symptoms would get baseline screening and follow-up care if needed. "Even if only 10 per cent of retired NFL football players eventually receive a qualifying diagnosis," the judge wrote, "it is difficult to see how the Monetary Award Fund would have the funds available over its lifespan to pay all claimants at these significant award levels." She asked for more raw financial data before scheduling a fairness hearing this year, when objectors can question the plan. The objectors could later decide to opt out of it. Law professor Gabe Feldman, who directs the sports law program at the Tulane University Law School, called the ruling a setback but said "theres no reason to panic." "The question remains whether this gives pause to some of the retired players and makes them question whether this is a settlement they want to be a part of," he said. Some critics said the NFL, with more than $9 billion in annual revenue, was getting away lightly. But the players lawyers said they would face huge challenges just to get the case to trial. They would have to prove the injuries were linked to the players NFL service and should not be handled through league arbitration. They could end up with nothing. Sol Weiss, a lead lawyer for the ex-players, remained confident the class action settlement will ultimately be approved. He said he was confident "that there will be enough money to cover these claims for 65 years." NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said league officials were "confident that the settlement is fair and adequate and look forward to demonstrating that to the court." More than 4,500 former players have filed suit, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions. They include former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett and Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon, who suffers from dementia. The judges hand-picked mediator, former federal judge Layn R. Phillips, led several months of negotiations last year and has called the deal fair to both sides. The settlement would include $675 million for compensatory claims for players with neurological symptoms, $75 million for baseline testing for asymptomatic men and $10 million for medical research and education. The NFL also would pay an additional $112 million to the players lawyers for their fees and expenses, for a total payout of nearly $900 million. The NCAA clause is apparently designed to prevent plaintiffs from double dipping. Feldman said he was unsure why the NFL would insist on that. Given the judges ruling, the two sides could offer more evidence the fund would be stable, change the payout formula or perhaps have the NFL add more money to the pot. Otherwise, they may be left to start over. "I think its a pretty efficient way of doing things, rather than bring it up for the first time at the fairness hearing," Matt Mitten, who directs the National Sports Law Institute at the Marquette University Law School, said of the judges opinion. "Some of these guys need the money right now." Trevor Van Riemsdyk Jersey .com) - The Chicago White Sox have officially announced that the club has agreed to terms with utilityman Emilio Bonifacio on a one-year, $4 million contract that includes a team option for the 2016 season. Tiger Williams Jersey . The Ravens werent about to let it happen again. Carleton picked up its fourth straight national mens basketball title, and 10th in the last 12 years, with a 79-67 victory over its crosstown rival on Sunday. http://www.officialhockeyproshop.com/Chicago-Blackhawks-Brent-Seabrook-Jersey/ . The Detroit Tigers slugger fell short in his bid to become the first player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons.Lynsey Armitage proudly represents Team Northumbria as the oldest player in the Superleague and hopes to make her experience count against Surrey Storm. The 40-year-old former England player is expected to feature on the court when Team Northumbria take on reigning champions Surrey on Monday night, live on Sky Sports 2 from 7.30pm.Armitage admits she could not resist a call to compete in the Vitality Superleague again and the seasoned shooter believes she offers a different attacking option to Team Northumbria. It was too good of an opportunity to say no, said Armitage. I still captain a Premier League side, but to get asked to come back and play Superleague, why would you say no to it?Its a fantastic opportunity, not only to play netball, but also introduce a different style of play to a team that hasnt got a tall shooter. Its a little bit of a learning curve for the Northumbria girls as well, because they are all quite young.  With the experience that Ive got, I stay quite calm and bring a different dynamic to the team. Surrey claimed victory over Team Northumbria earlier this season Armitage enjoys her status as the most senior player in the league, but admits the rapidly developing sport is becoming increasingly physical.She said: I was 40 in January, which was the week I got asked to play actually. I did answer: you do know how old I am?There shouldnt be an age limit on what you can do, if youve got a decent enough ability. It should be about that, more than the age.Reflecting on changes in Netball, Armitage added: Its amazing. Its not just to do with the sponsorshipp and the money. Tie Domi Jersey. Just the physical ability of the players now. All the girls are in the gym and the sheer strength of the girls, I think you have to be more of athlete. Team Northumbria will line-up against Surrey Storm on Monday night Team Northumbria have picked up confidence boosting wins over Loughborough Lightning and Yorkshire Jets this season.Armitage admits the team is a work in progress, but believes they can emerge as genuine title rivals in the coming years.I dont think anyone would have had us down to turn over Loughborough like we did and it was a great day, she said.It just shows the depth in the squad and the mental strength of the team. It was a shame we lost to Celtic Dragons the other week.But this a young squad and they are looking to progress this team, so that in the next few years they are competing with the likes of Storm and Manchester Thunder.Watch Team Northumbria take on Surrey Storm, live on Sky Sports 2 from 7.30pm on Monday.  Or watch for £6.99 without a contract, on NOW TV.
