The law has been broken? Doctors can determine concussions a year after the fact? Not without a baseline brain scan prior to beginning football. You know, like from HS.
Prosecution of the HC? JFC.
You are right about one thing, however. The NFL faux concern about player safety is laughable and exists only to help mitigate the risk of a potential lawsuit/Congressional investigation.maindogg wrote:
She said he had one last year. Ok docs should be able to determine the if that happened. Let's get to the bottom of this , she said also that he has one every year. And never has he been diagnosed according to the Patriots.
This is verifyable and the NFL must demand a medical exam . Found to true , the harshest penalties levied. A huge fine, like say 50 million that would go toward the medical costs of the head injury suits. Loss of all draft picks for three years , the immediate suspension of Tom Brady for multiple years forcing his retirement .and the removal and possible prosecution of Bill Belicheck and anyone else involved in covering up concussions that may have occurred to any players on that team.
The league is filthy.they either clean up their act or they are doomed because the law has been broken and that's not cool.
Baseline assessments are cognitive tests issued before the season to establish a baseline.
CT and MRI scans don't show concussions. Currently, diagnostic technology can't definatively determine if a concussion occurred right afterward (unless posthumously).
