Outside the Lines: Second Impact Syndrome

The best comment I hear in this video was the one at the end - If you can't afford to have a certified athletic trainer on site then you shouldn't have the sport." We would not allow the players to participate if we could not afford helmets - would we?

If we "the taxpayer" are going to pay JaQuan Waller's mother a couple million dollars (like she deserves yet will not be sufficient to replace her son) then we could have paid 35 years of an athletic trainer's salary at $57,000 per year. And just imagine, that ATC would be on site for other injuries also.

Love to hear your comments. Enjoy!

All I can say is Amen, Scott.

I posted this on my blog and quoted you.

Also, making 57k a year would blow my mind (in a good way).
