Viewer discretion

Is there any reason why a judge would not sign off on the agreement the NFL has come to with its’ brain-damaged retired players? I think so, but the suffering people won’t see the money they need for treatment for many, many years if this goes to trial. So the judge must sign off even though the evidence of a trial would stir to the top of the public attention might justify a humane pulse and lose the NFL some fans and produce more legislation; perhaps a viewing warning, a viewer discretion notice at the beginning of the concussion-ridden game, followed with further warnings upon return from commercials. Such shows as “The Walking Dead,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Dexter,” “Game of Thrones” (all of which are not real) give their audience a viewer discretion notice several times during an episode.
