Deion Sanders Is 86 Percent Impaired, Workers Comp Claim Says

Deion Sanders, who has accused other NFL athletes of faking their head injuries for money, is cognitively impaired, four doctors have determined.

Sanders has had no problem using his pedestal as a Hall of Famer and television analyst to talk shit about other former NFL players suffering brain damage. "The game is a safe game," he said during the Super Bowl telecast last year. "I don't buy all these guys coming back with these concussions. I'm not buying all that. Half these guys are trying to make money off the deal."

But perhaps that was just the behavioral/emotional disorder talking. He apparently has that too.

In total, the four different doctors who examined Sanders found him to be suffering from 13 medical conditions. Sanders reported the grim diagnosis in a workers compensation claim he filed in California.

The Los Angeles Times discovered the claim, part of a nifty database it's been working on. According to the paper, more than 4,400 claims of head injuries by professional athletes have been filed in California, because the hippie state is much more generous to injured workers than other states.

Sanders' case is pending, according to the Times, so he hasn't won any injury money yet.

Doctors also reported that he is suffering from arthritis and "arousal disorder," an innocent sleep disorder with an unfortunate name (before I looked up what arousal disorder actually was, I assumed that was the cause of the arthritis).

The LA Times couldn't get a comment from Sanders. I reached out to him for comment on Twitter. His response: "u are ignorant and the worst journalist EVER! TRUTH"

Workers Comp? Doesn't he have enough money?

The real shocker here is that Deion is 14% un-impaired.

This the result of government negotiating and administering unemployment claims.  Deion Sanders games the system.  

No wonder the unemployment rate drops.  The workforce is the smallest in thirty years since even a Deion Sanders can stop looking for work.

And the Left declares we are out of the recession as a result.

As long as he is in the news he is happy. Not enough mustard in the world for that hot dog.

Wasn't it just 2 weeks ago that Deion said that Amy Silverstein was a good reporter and offered her a cameo on his new television show?  How quickly things change. Sorry Amy; no TV stardom for you.

Deion is black. According to liberal standards, that's 50% disability from the git-go. Give the man his money.

I was not aware there was ever any question about his mental deficiency.  I'm only surprised at the seeminly low 86%.

You don't think an upstanding servant of the court such as Larry Friedman might use this report against him in his divorce fight?

Well, he did use TRUTH!, so it must be true that you're the worst journalist ever. Sorry.

In short, Deion Sanders is to blame for all of America's problems.

@ruddski This is as ignorant a comment as the sewage that flows from Deion's mouth.  By your own standards, it safe to assume that you are black too.

If Deion got a blow job in a church, and it was covered in UP, would the net collapse?

@Bob Kendall Deion has not donated one dime of his money to Prime Prep... not one.  But he does collect a paycheck.

Yes. It's a bandana + visor, but someone should tell him a baseball cap serves the same function AND it can be turned all crazy sideways, too.

@Dawn Wildfang You probably should have thought about that for a minute or two before you posted.

@Dawn Wildfang:  86% of "arousal disorder" still leaves 14% of pleasure.  Isn't that enough?

@Rumpunch1Please dear Lord don't let this spur another custody battle where we get another years worth of every day local news segment killing courthouse 'he said/she said' coverage.
