Chris Stopleton doesn’t have the same access to home insurance as the rest of us, but he’s got the right to take out a home insurance claim if the NFL were to shut down the stadium or if he needed to evacuate his family.
Stapletons new home is a house in Las Vegas that he bought with a friend and his wife after the NFL ended the season.
He is not covered by the Staplets policy, but the insurance does cover him.
“I live in Las Vegas, so I have a home in Nevada, so it does cover me,” he told KSL-TV in Las Angeles.
“I am still on the team, so that is a no-brainer.”
Stapleton said he has always been a fan of the NFL, so he doesn’t mind being a part of a protest if it makes him feel better.
“I am not a huge fan of it, but I’m willing to do anything I have to to support the league and the fans,” he said.
“They are good people, and I think they do a good job of keeping the game going.”
Stallings father is a retired NFL player who works as a personal trainer.
He said he was hoping to buy a house that he could afford to buy himself and that would be good insurance.
“The thing about the policy is it does not cover me in case the NFL shut down,” he explained.
“So I am not going to pay out a policy, just because I am on the NFL.”
Stapletos insurance policy covers him, but that’s not the only thing the Staps have to consider.
Stamens son, who is in college and not enrolled at the school, is also insured under his dad’s policy.
The insurance will cover the family when the family is away from home.
That’s because Stapley has not been able to get insurance for the family since his son went off to college.
“It is kind of scary that I can’t do it because it is his father,” he recalled.
This is the third time in the last 10 years that Chris has had to pay for his son’s medical care.
He said he wants the Stalls to have access to their home and medical care for the duration of the season, but is worried that the NFL could shut down at any time.
“You don’t want to do that, but you also want to get a fair price,” he added.
KSL-LA reports that the Stavles are still hoping to get an answer on when the NFL might resume.
