|Clinton Portis and Joe Horn are the 2 biggest names facing up to 20 years in jail for defrauding the NFLPA of a combined $3 million in fraudulent health care costs. The players blatantly made up health care claims and submitted them for reimbursement to a fund that is supposed to help retired players with medical expenses. Some of the claims immediately raised eyebrows, such as expensive hyperbaric oxygen chambers and electromagnetic therapy devices that are primarily used on horses. The NFLPA ordered an investigation and the players’ stories quickly unraveled. The Dept. of Justice was called in and say that 4 arrests have already been made with 6 others expected to be in custody shortly. The investigation is ongoing and could bring down additional players.
This thread was great before AA ruined it.
