I like the part where the Miami coach said, "I would never put a player in harm's way." Dude, it's football. Every game is like being in a car crash.
Literally, could happen to anyone. Think he's just a bit scared of the repercussions that can happen if something serious or in the future will happen. If im that player I'm 1000% playing in the game because those are my guys. But you need to have better evaluations.. and guidelines that they the player or doctor have no control over. I.E. have the NFL know the situation and to take care of the kid.
Let's not be disingenuous about what is meant by this. I think everyone knows the inherent, initial harm that comes with playing football. This is in reference to nothing further that isn't necessary. Making sure any injuries or damages that have already occured aren't further exacerbated

I am a Bengals fan and after seeing Tua lock up like that I was furious. Couldn't even enjoy the rest of the game. I just hope Tua is able to recover and live a normal life.
same as an Eagles Fan. I picked the Bengals to win and wanted them to, I still believe they would've won whether Tua got hurt or not, but I couldn't even enjoy the game after. I don't think I'm gonna enjoy the NFL like I used to just last week. And I'm only 19, but man it's sickening what happened. I hope Tua doesn't play another Down this season just for his own Safety. his life matters more than a Week 5, 7, 13 Victory.

Bart Scott hit this out the park! When Tua stumbled, shook his head repeatedly, grabbing his head/facemask. I immediately went back to my last concussion, I did the same things! It was as if I could actually feel that pressure in my head, the foggyness, the spinning (of the field). EVERY football pIayer knows this is what a concussion looks like. I also lectured on traumatic brain/spinal cord injuries. When i heard he was playing 4 days later, i was angry and very concerned all day yesterday because I knew if he took another hit his symptoms would come back WORSE than on Sunday, even if the hit was LIGHTER than the hit on Sunday (Just like Bart said). SIS (Second Impact Syndrome) can result in death... basically it's getting two concussions close together which leads to swelling of the brain. Thank God this did not happen. This made me sick to my stomach because it did not have to happen. The desire to win a football game was more important that his health because EVERYONE on that field knew he had a concussion. And for those people (some were former players) who said it might be a back injury or spasm! Back spasm? When someone gets a back spasm the pain is sudden and intense, there ain't no walking, no moving around (except for writhing in pain), there is no standing up from wherever you are, it's impossible because you can't move, the pain is so intense. You could have offered me a million dollars to get up and walk around from the chair I was in the last time i had a sudden back spasm and you would have had to give that money to someone else! Nonsense!

I have been a legit Dolphins fan for 7 years now . I am completely heartbroken for my guy Tua . When everyone out there talk down on him I never did !!! They have a lot to say about people, comparing him to his draft mates and Tua has a better winning record than Justin and Joe . Joe did his thing taking his team to the Super Bowl I give him props for that but WINNING is what Tua all about ! Tua won over my heart to be the Miami Dolphins QB1 . I have a lot of faith for him never doubted him. What I saw last night maneeeee I shed some tears. Wow ! Things happens so fast when that happen I didn’t care about the game no more . hoping for an fast recovery for him and I hate that this maybe messed up his whole career I am heartbroken 💔
I agree. The flexing of the hands was scary. I've seen it before with head injuries. They allowed this to happen by the reaction they had last week. The concussion checks were supposed to prevent this! This is a young man, and this could be a life-altering injury!! No one wants to see this!! This is why Giselle wants Tom to quit! Because these injuries happen in seconds, and there's no getting your brain back.

As someone who went through multiple sports related concussions over a few months 20 years ago, the most overlooked part of concussions, in terms of injury and consequences, symptoms etc. are soft tissue, ie muscle and nerve damage at the top and base of the neck, which looks to me like what might be a significant part of his injury
As a diehard Dolphins fan, I was excited about this season! After what I witnessed regarding Tua and his injury, I don’t care if they make the playoffs or not! This incident just put a huge stain on the season!
You can’t blame Tua, the pressure of being a player and showing your toughness, the player will always say they’re ok. You can’t blame teammates for speaking up cause they won’t be on the team much longer, that’s called insubordination and out of favor. The blame is obvious, it’s the so called team doctors and upper team brass, the head coach and all coaches should be fired even though they:he answers to the brass, speak up and you’ll be protected. The doctors should loose their medical license, they take an oath. The organization and top brass should be fined up the wazzule. The nfl should let all teams know that this is the accountability.
This kind of back to back head trauma is going to have lifelong implications for Tua. The organization needs to be held accountable for letting him play.

I think it was more of the whiplash that caused the concussion than the actual head hitting the ground. He got swung pretty fast. Like they're saying, it's a lot easier to get a second concussion within a few days of the previous one. It didn't look like he hit the ground that hard. But either way he shouldn't have been in the game in the first place. I hope he's going to be okay.
@thomashoad3433 Yıl önce
This is exactly it. Bart explained it perfectly: the concussion happens when the head has a sudden stop, but the brain keeps moving and crashes into the side of the skull. So when Tua was brought down against the Bills, you see his head whip back and forth. When his head hit the ground and had a sudden stop, his brain would have smashed against the back of his skull. Bauer was working on a piece of experimental equipment a few years ago that went around a player's neck and applied mild pressure so that there would be a larger blood barrier between the brain and skull, thus theoretically limiting the potential for concussions. This was tested in hockey and football players and unfortunately was not as effective as they hoped and never really caught on.
After watching Tua on Sunday, fall down, get up and down again, there were definitely cobwebs going on in his head!! They never should have cleared him to come back on the field. Prayers for his health🙏🏾🙏🏾

Shame on Miami and the NFL for letting him even have the choice to go in there.
Dude my excitement & enthusiasm for this football season is way down after seeing Tua’s injury last nite! I hope he’s doing better.😞
I had a neck injury that had me acting and moving EXACTLY like Tua did after the hit at Buffalo. Even so, if it were a neck injury, he should have been out. I lost my college wrestling career after that sophomore injury. I had what they THOUGHT were back to back concussions within 48 hours of each other. The kind where you hit so hard that you can't see for a good 5 or so seconds but aren't KOd. Turned out I was acting and moving funny over a slipped disk in the neck. College career ended with the fusion surgery of two vertebra.

Some people are just not physically up to this violent sport. Sam Bradford anyone? IT does not mean the leaghue should do more to protect players dfrom themselves, absolutely they should but again if a player loses a £250k performance fee because someone decided they were not fit to play who compensates that?

The fault in that was the dolphins letting him back in the Bills game and letting him play thursday. football has been going a long time and a small minority of players have had really bad long term injuries from it. Its not everyone. Sometimes it happens because in anything there is risk. Anytime anyone gets into a car there's a risk of some drunk fool running a light and killing someone. There's a risk in everything just about it. Living by what ifs isn't really the way to go either. But the situation in this case was he was obviously concussed. anyone that had watched football or pro wrestling long enough to see concussed people. that was a concussion and the Dolphins either lied about it to override protocol or were incompetent in diagnosing it. He wasn't recovered from the previous concussion so the second time the injury was worsened. But there are a large majority of guys that went 14 years or more with barely a scratch playing the game. What happened with Tua is more of one of the freak cases that happened because of that teams negligence.

We love the game in great part because of the big hits, as a matter of fact the number one reason why football is a multibillion dollar industry and the most watched sport in the United States is because of the violent element in it. I for one am a huge football fan and have been since as far back as I have had the ability to reason but seeing Tua get injured the way he did i must admit was pretty disturbing, it gave me chills. The libertarian argument to the violent element within sports like football, boxing, mma, rugby etc is that human beings should be allowed to do whatever they want as long as they are not hurting others in the process unless those others are consenting adults. But if consenting adults want to participate in Gladiator games were they fight till death like in the days of Ancient Rome should they be allowed to do so? I personally would say “no” and I think most people would agree with me but when it comes to football or boxing which you can argue is a form of long term death those same people would tell you it’s okay. So I guess its a matter of degree. How much danger is too much danger? And who should decide how much danger is too much danger? Should it be the players, the coaches, the referees, the GMs, the fans, the owners, the politicians, the voters, the family members of the players ? Or a little bit of everyone? Well whatever the answer the truth of the matter is that this problem is not going anywhere. The only way you completely eradicate concussions and CTE from football is to completely prohibit any type of tackling and go with flag football or touch football or something along those lines and thats not going to happen, at least not in my lifetime. So we might as well get used to these type of injuries because the sad truth is that we’re going to be seeing them for the rest of our lives. GET WELL SOON TUA!

This just pisses me off!!! He should NOT have went back out there to play again on Sunday, or play again on Thursday! This is serious $hit! I was really shocked to see him back out there! And I am a Bills fan, but regardless of what team, where is the care for these players???!! Hope this opens the eyes of everyone ! I get it that every team wants to win games, but this is just not worth it!! Hope he's going to be ok 🙏💖

I got a concussion in high school that put me out for 1 min on the practice field and I passed all the test right after. But I took myself out of practice and the game the rest of the week just to make sure I was ok. And to be honest for 5 years after that concussion I would have blackout moments randomly. Concussion need to be taken seriously by everyone even the players need to do a better job

Stephen A and the media deserve a medal for this level of audacity. One day it's Tua's head is fine the NFL and Phins came to the conclusion he passed the protocol. It was a "mobility" injury. (Which even Stevie Wonder and my unborn son could see was a head injury) now it's this and everyone pointing at the Dolphins lol. I don't agree with how the Dolphins handled it but it's wild how these "expert analysts" couldn't see the potential of this happening in a game just 4 days after they played the BILLS, where he's now up against one of the best defensive ends in the league and their d line is allowing less than 90 rushing yards a game so you know the pressure is coming.. All they did was justify the Dolphins decision at the time now they're backtracking. Get mad at the protocols not the team
Concussed people alot of times will not remember the event .It is like time stopped for them .I have seen it. Do not blame or questions Tua .Support this great guy. Fins up.

The defender who tackled him didn't have to slam him so hard after the tackle, that should have been an unnecessary roughness foul. It would have been smart for the team to rest him given that they had only 4 days in between games, but if the doctors cleared him we can't really blame the team, and he wanted to play too. Let's just hope he recovers fully.

My oldest is 11 and he's gotten bitten by football fever. We don't root for either team but he wanted to watch some of the game before bed. I was out of the room and heard him yell that the quarterback was sacked and broke his fingers........My wife was also watching and knew right away what had happened. She has always been adamant our kids will not be allowed to play football for this type of reason and witnessing that pretty much solidifies her stance.

@evan4158 Yıl önce
Bart Scott is spot on-"soft pressure- no one is directly going to say something..."-- as well as stating they know what they are signing up for- like the military, etc. this is a dangerous code of quiet that has long term and devastating consequences- the game has stop gap measures that are to stop this mentality- and the coach and medical team as well as the NFL blew through these measures--at this point--more than once. There is no set pace for a head injury recovery- some are minutes, days, weeks, months, years--every brain heals as fast as it is able-- the NFL, coaches, medical team--let this man down. (Tua- sorry bro- your "I'm OK" does not count- as you have a legit head injury-get better at your own pace.)
@paullittle9187 Yıl önce
I seem to remember Bart Scott making some reckless comments last year about Joe Burrow after the Bengals beat the Ravens handily in a game. He talked about the Ravens players placing a "red dot" on Burrow and doing things like bouncing his head off of the turf when they sacked/hit him the next time they played. Scott is an ex-Raven and seemed to think the Bengals had violated some unwritten code by showing the Ravens up. Am I the only one who remembers hearing those comments?
Right on Stephen A.!

I’m not really an avid NFL follower but do watch every now and then. With limited knowledge and knowing he had a hip injury in college, will Tua miss many weeks? If he was able to fly back that night and had all movements in extremities will he just be placed in concussion protocol?
@DD-sr9xm Yıl önce
SAS is right. The loophole to “gross mobile instability” is if it’s non-neurological, eg a back injury. So they said back injury. Then let him play 4 days later and a standard tackle causes “posturing” like we saw with his fingers?! Then, THEN, they put him on a plane the net morning risking brain hemorrhagimg? It’s really dangerous.
@RaymondGOAT Yıl önce
My people that watch combat sports knew what it was…I knew it was concussion…and clearly he shouldn’t have been out there…and yeah he got the knock of being injury prone but being real anybody…can get a concussion frfr…but like Bart said everyone knew the risk in that building…including the Tua…respect and I’ve seen plenty of concussion shid one of my friends in high school…was out of it and we never knew…until he hit head tryna make tackle and got up ran to the sideline and sat down and was looking off in tho space…
