Under the proposed settlement, the survivors of players found to have died with CTE can qualify for a payment as high as $4 million. But some, including the family of Junior Seau , have announced plans to opt out of the settlement. Like Duerson, Seau committed suicide in 2012 by shooting himself in the chest with a .357 Magnum revolver. His family has filed a wrongful death suit against the league, arguing in part that the deal does not include adequate compensation for the descendants of former players. An attorney for the family told ESPN this month that the family was not suing “for his pain and suffering. They’re suing for their own.”
The most critical diagnosis to make early in this group is the femoral neck stress fracture. This is usually found in the patient who is involved in an endurance sport. Another group at increased risk is women with the female athlete triad (amenorrhea, eating disorder and osteoporosis). 14 The typical history in these cases is progressively increasing pain with exercise that eventually becomes pain at rest. Femoral neck stress fractures can progress to unstable fractures and are at increased risk for avascular necrosis of the femoral head. Bone scans are a useful “negative” test because they are up to 100 percent sensitive 15 for stress fractures of the femoral neck. Positive scans are nonspecific and may require MRI or other imaging to be certain of a diagnosis.
Five athletes tested positive for the stimulant bromantan and were disqualified by the IOC, but later reinstated after an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport: swimmers Andrey Korneyev and Nina Zhivanevskaya , Greco-Roman wrestler Zafar Guliyev and sprinter Marina Trandenkova , all from Russia, and the Lithuanian track cyclist Rita Razmaitė . Dr. Vitaly Slionssarenko, physician to the Lithuanian cycling team and team coach Boris Vasilyev were expelled from the games.    The CAS overturned the IOC decision, because bromantan had only recently been added to the prohibited list,  and the athletes and officials were reprimanded.    The Russians had argued that bromantans wasn't a stimulant and thus not banned.
