I always wondered how hockey concussions were months long but football players are back a week later 

 

Two reasons. One: hockey hits to the head are generally much more violent. Two: the NFL cares more about ratings than players.

I'm so pissed for Tua the human being.

 

WTF...

 

The people who let him go back out there Sunday and suit up tonight ought to be ashamed of themselves.

 

 

This is true. But Tua is also an adult. It’s his responsibility to be truthful with the medical staff, assuming Miami coaching staff didn’t fully make up the “back” or “ankle” being hurt. It came from somewhere. That said, it’s up to the coaching staff to know when he’s not being fully truthful. The whole thing should be thoroughly investigated. Disgusted this all has been risked for a game.

Decorticate posture

    

Decorticate posture is an abnormal posturing in which a person is stiff with bent arms, clenched fists, and legs held out straight. The arms are bent in toward the body and the wrists and fingers are bent and held on the chest.

This type of posturing is a sign of severe damage in the brain. People who have this condition should get medical attention right away.
 

 

Fencing response is a form of decerebrate posturing https://www.researchgate.net/publication/316747806_The_fencing_response_in_concussions_to_NFL_football_players

Hes had more than his share of hard luck. I too wonder whether he’s maybe just not sturdy enough to play at this level.

He's not.

 

He couldn't even stay healthy on the college level

 

He's small and fragile...just not built for the rigors of football

Why are they more violent? Is it because of the speed? Do they actually go for the head?

 

I've been to three games ever and nothing exciting happened 😂

It's not just a game but a life changing contract. Hate to say it but am sure Tua knows this could be his make or break year.

Looks like the NFL letter of the Law needs to be modified.  I know posters are upset with the TV crews but for me the true

responsibility lies with the NFL.  I'm sure the NFLPA has the lawyers ready to go.

 

The people on TV are indirectly paid to be cheerleaders for the NFL.  The non-NFL affiliated sportscasters will need to do the talking.
