The concussion protocol is a ******* joke...

So last week Keenan and The green bay OLmen with the hardest name ive ever spelled violated concussion protocol, but Percy Harvin gets a concussion.... they say he went and took the test... He's out for a series, if that.....and back in no problem.... Three plays later, whatya know he's out again... with another concussion.... because he shouldn't even be in the game... You hold some teams to a standard, that you don't hold everyone to.... WTF

I would guess its the specific doctor who is the problem, not the protocol itself.

Re: The concussion protocol is a ******* joke...

I feel the same way. I couldn't believe he was back on the field that quick.
Maybe the test went like this:
Doctor: "Percy, what state are you in?"
Percy: "Cannnadaaaa"
Doctor: "Close enough, get back out there."
"No Percy that's the locker, the door is over there."

Re: The concussion protocol is a ******* joke...

I, we, no one wants to see any player hurt by legal hits or not.

Harwin went back out there per their team docs, per the refs, per Harwin, FINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He was concussed?
He faked being ok?
Whatever!!

Harwin might be eating pureed foods and soups by early 30's. His life. Was it worth it to him to be out there at all and any cost and for his team ast any cost, ok, then WONDERFUL!!!! Good for him. Enjoy that baby food in a few years.

unfortunately you know that they are going to call that 99% of the time-
similar to the Brees nonfumble vs SanFran: high hit, head snaps, flag

This is what's incredibly obvious. Different teams have different doctors who quite obviously have different criteria for letting people back in the game.
