Florio: Stephen Ross doesn’t want to break the bank to pay Tua

Honestly I only mentioned it because I had never seen the word Apeculate before... I thought maybe you grabbed a thesaurus and were trying out new words. Was not calling you out for a spelling mistake. LOL

Then my apologies for being an overreacting tool. I get that way sometimes.

Also, I hadn’t had coffee yet. I’m fixing that now.
 
It’s a message board. Grammar and spelling isn’t usually required to meet AP standards here.

But if you call someone else out, and make mistakes in that very same post….
Yup. Though I have instituted a rule with my 15 year old daughter where I refuse to answer her texts unless she at least tries to communicate with me with something that at least looks somewhat like an attempt at proper usage of the language.
 
As for the concussion issue specifically and the topic of repeated concussions. It has been studied and it took me less than a second to find some.



I will post part of this that directly applies:

University of Pittsburgh’s Brain Trauma Research Center reports more than 300,000 sports-related concussions occur annually in the U.S. Additionally, the likelihood of suffering a concussion while playing a contact sport is estimated to be as high as 19% per year of play; in other words, almost all athletes of contact sports suffer from a concussion within five years of participation. It has been reported that more than 62,000 concussions are sustained each year in high school contact sports. Among college football players, 34% have had one concussion and 20% have endured multiple concussions. Estimates show that 4-20% of college and high school football players sustain a brain injury over the course of one season. The risk of concussion in football is three to six times higher in players who have had a previous concussion.

A study conducted by McGill University in Montreal found that 60% of college soccer players reported symptoms of a concussion at least once during the season. The study also reveals that concussion rates in soccer players were comparable to those in football. According to this study, athletes who suffered a concussion were four to six times more likely to suffer a second concussion. Research such as this has led to greater interest in developing protective headgear for soccer participants, but it is not clear that such headgear actually reduces the risk of concussion.

So yeah... Tons of talented doctors and researchers have done studies and they came up with the same results. up to 6 times more likely to suffer additional concussions.


Remember, The University of Pittsburgh's brain trauma research center did this study.... So they are specialists and experts in the field of brain trauma and injury. This is not some guy getting his friends together in his mom's basement discussing this over beers.


Up to 6 times more likely.
Please take as much time as you need to process this.

Man I need to apologise also.... I could have worded my response better. Yeah I am on coffee #2 as we speak.

Look harder. And you take your time as well.

The doctor who made the statement regarding Tua showed that once the brain is given time to heal (which Tua had plenty of from 2022-23), the is no more likely incidence of additional concussions.

All of the verbiage you’ve posted above pertains to repeated concussions WITHOUT healing.

The neurosurgeon who said all of this was Dr. Joseph Maroon of the University of Pittsburgh’s Brain Trauma Research Center. He’s literally part of the team that did the research you’re quoting.

Ross must have been intoxicated if he made that statement, I went through all of Tua's passes from the last couple of seasons and he is better than at least 6 Qb's as far as what he needs to do to manage this team, ok he doesn't have a cannon arm and may try to force a through here and there but this guy is his own type of gunslinger with the rock, he makes throws that a lots of Qb's don't even try that have excellent arm strength. Look at the throws that matter,ie: crossing, post and all of the underneath stuff, and then with his lack of a cannon arm hits Cheetah, Waddle for 50 plus yards touchdowns, he's the perfect Qb for the Dolphins, every Qb gets dinged up so stop using that for a reason not to pay him, he deserves every nickel he can get from Ross, pay him on the same level as Jared Goff and lets's get this thing rolling.
 
clinging to the concussion issue at this point seems
The anti-Tua crowd need something to cling to in an attempt to see him gone from the Dolphins. They overlook that QB’s like Burrow and Watson have missed more games with injuries than Tua, yet their teams signed them to huge contracts anyway.
 
I wonder if the organization has already determined how long they are willing to let a holdout go on for. This is going to get ugly if it turns out that Ross has decided he wants to be the NFL’s litmus test for what happens when you attempt to curb the trend of ever increasing QB contracts. Which, let’s face it, does sound a bit like something Ross would endeavor to do. I can just see Jerry Jones standing in the shadows, egging him on.
