Concussions in all sports appear inevitable. Uniform designers, helmet engineers, medical personnel try their best to prevent injuries. Mostly, they are successful. However, brain injuries, both minor and severe, still occur. Some are caused intentionally by ruffians on the sports field, but most are pure accident. Nevertheless, the injured athlete suffers and has to miss some practice and game participation time.
I propose that, whoever causes the concussion, on purpose or by accident, be required to miss the same amount of practice and playing time, with no pay.
