Virtual Reality is a headset you wear on your head that projects a screen right in front of you're eyes to resemble a look that you are actually there. Quarterbacks are now using this same technology to help them practice drills and plays while not in the field. VR also has its perks for the fans which allows them to watch full games with the view of being right on the field while at home. Some say that the VR will change the way players prepare for a game.
The Workers Compensation Bill has a potentially large impact for the Chicago Bears. Within the 136 pages in the proposed bill there are only a few changes. Of those changes, the section most pertinent to the Bears is the wage differential. The wage differential is awarded until the employee turns 67, or, at a maximum, 5 years after the injury. The modifications to the bill, however, specifically define professional athletes and their differences from traditional employees. Instead of a 67-year-old cap on wage differential, the proposed end to wage differential is when the former athlete turns 35 (the 5 year stipulation still applies).
