Fair enough. Then Matto should seriously consider his options because it doesn't look rosy for him if he continues playing.Concussion results from the brain moving a little. It would be a hell of an investment to create a device that holds the brain steady when there’s impact.
And some people were/are happy with Kaufusi's two week suspension. How is that a deterrent to what can result in this type of injury?
There is no way in the world that he would have followed through with his forearm/elbow as if Matterson had no head if he knew that the penalty was a 10+ week suspension.
Something tells me his tackle technique would have been totally different.
The two week suspension is a joke. I wish that a player would sue the NRL for not having strong deterrents and protections in place to prevent career and life altering foul play injuries. They deserve nothing less. Hopefully Mattereson is the litigious type and he does just that. With suspensions like that the NRL is just playing lip service to head trauma injuries.
Nothing like the threat of litigation to get them policing and charging players for foul play correctly.
