This league has a problem.

A lot of guys get sent back into the game after two minutes. Ask many a frustrated wife on Fark.

I've given up on the NFL. They care little for the players who give their bodies and future health for the sake of helping the League make a buck. I'm glad that many parents are not letting their children play football in high school.

Rumor is that the NFL is going to institute a new rule week five, that an player with a head injury of any kind will not be allowed to return.

These days, the only thing that would surprise me about the Concussion Protocol would be if it worked.

Which means were going to see so f*cking many more upper back and shoulder injury calls instead of concussions. Like Cameron Brate had.

Tua had a head injury. They called it a back injury.

On the plus side, there will be a lot of openings for team physicians.   Chiropractors everywhere rejoice!

Wouldn't him not knowing he got hit in the head, in fact, be greater cause for concern?

I got hit in the head by a fastball once, I insisted it just hit my shoulder and I was fine. The coach immediately pulled me because I got smacked in the head and didn't farking know it.

Right, what I am saying is that if a player is hiat to the head and there is any injury time, they are out. Full stop. 

It's going to be a drastic change, and rightfully so.

This game only happened because the league was incredibly greedy. They already had the perfect regular season scheduling formula and playoff formats that they pointlessly threw aside to add a couple extra pennies to their pockets.

The NFL's overdue for a players' strike.

The NFL needs to be more like your coach. A lot more.

In fact all of us should be a bit more like your coach, and start caring a little more about other people. Even the people who care greatly about other people's well-being, could be better people by caring a little bit more.

Did his coach possibly have a 7 figure contract based off the success of that game ?

Pro sports is a buisness actually pro sports are the toys of billionares  that they are "nice" enough to allow is to watch them play with and imagine we are part of the team by paying for tickets, jerseys, Sunday Ticket and everything else associated with being a fan to include a new stadium cause lets face we can't let our billion play with his toy in anything less than the best stadium tax payers can buy.

I guess what I am saying is the concussion protocol works perfectly fine for those that truly matters the owners and the only change that wilp happen will be the one that ensures the highest profits for them.

Sometimes I can't believe that both mustaches and mullets are back in style, at the same time. Perhaps it's not a coincidence.
