Saying some just got their bell rung in sports today is tantamount with calling a tranny by the wrong pronoun on a college campus. People legitimately lose their shit like you've raped their kids.  This will be treated very seriously and I imagine Balor will be out for about a month. 

I wish people and coaches were more attentive when I played football. I've had around 7 playing football and another 2 playing hockey. Concussions aren't the joke you are making it out to be. I'm assuming that you never played sports and got hurt by the way you are making fun of it.

You missed the point of my post. Probably because of the concussions.

LOL

Seriously though, Rossi has a fantastic point.  Concussion protocol comes into play now whenever there is a potential head injury with grade school students, which is a good thing.  HOWEVER, there are scenarios happening now where little Johnnie bumped his noggin and a doctor has written him a note saying he doesn't have to participate in almost anything cognitively challenging, cannot take tests, does not have to do any work at school for weeks and weeks at times.  It has gotten a little out of control in some circumstances.  For every kid with a legit concussion, there is another milking the protocol.  And yes, I played football for years.

On a side note, I too have witnessed someone being hosed for screwing up the pronoun of a transgender individual in their 20's.  The sensitivity to that one almost scary.  You can make an honest mistake, and the next thing you know, you are Hitler.  Even the "Ze" and "Zir" can't bail you out every time lol.  It was like reverse bullying in that situation.

As much as it galls me to say it, I agree with Rossi here. Making light of concussions is like denying the Holocaust.

I'm not saying concussions are a joke but I believe that they are the cost of doing business in a violent sport even if it is scripted. As much as people want to try you usually can't make something violent safe.

I also think that people need to take responsibility for themselves. I had my bell rung more than a few times playing football in high school and I accepted that because I chose to hit with my helmet. Everything isn't always someone else's fault. If someone gets their bell rung and doesn't want to have it happen again they need to stop playing that sport.

PWInsider:

Finn Balor is in Columbus, Ohio and will be at Raw tonight to undergo medical testing to see where he stands following the concussion he suffered while wrestling Jinder Mahal last week in Long Island, New York.

Balor would need to pass an Impact test in order to be cleared to return to action. Balor was pulled from the WWE live events over the weekend due to the concussion.

I agree about taking responsibility for themselves. I also think that as time goes by people will learn that the human head was not designed for contact sports. This is coming from someone who was very physical, and was involved with contact sports up until recently. 
Now in my early 40's I notice things being off in my brain. Things like dizziness, getting light headed and having a hard time focusing at times. I've been told many of these issues are direct from brain trauma. 
I loved playing football and wrestling when I was a kid. Had a few visits to the doctor as a kid from head injuries too. But the truth is the brain is very delicate, and while we're all fans of watching wrestling even at it's safest is still a very dangerous profession in terms of brain trauma. Simple back bumps can be very damaging in itself. 
Getting your bell rung is no badge of honor when you have to stop, hold onto something stable because you've gotten so dizzy you feel like you'll fall if not. Kid's in high school or younger won't understand those consequences until it's possibly too late.

Had 18 (documented) concussions as a kid/teenager. Most from football, but some from Stupid Kid Shit. It's different for every person. For me, I'd hit my head and wouldn't feel different right away... then about 30 minutes later I'd lose sight in one eye. Usually my right eye. Sometimes my motor functions would dim. Had my speech slur a few times.

Of course, when I complained to my football coach about not being able to see; he slapped me on the helmet and told me to go see an eye doctor. He thought I was trying to get out of running the daily end-of-practice wind sprints.

The first three or four concussions of my life (pre-football), I remember I'd get hit, feel dizzy...then puke about 2-3 hours later. Felt fine after that.

I've also had times where I'd get hit hard in the head (like getting a breadmaker to the dome while working retail in the mid-90's) and thought: "oh crap, here comes another concussion", because the impact was so intense and felt the same. But I'd continue on with no effects. So in some cases, I was simply "hit in the head" or "had my bell rung", but not concussed.

The point is, you (or a doctor) often times can not immediately tell when a hit results in a concussion.

I stopped playing football my senior year, because of recurring concussions. I remember saying: "I'll only have football for six more weeks, but my head for 70+ years". Became a big joke at school, of course.

Concussions weren't a "thing" for my generation. If your head got hit hard, everyone usually focused on a potential neck injury. Every time I'd complain about symptoms, trainers would immediately examine my neck.

Do I notice any long term effects, now? I'm inclined to say "yes". Since age 14 or so (so almost 30 years), I see stars or get light-headed when I bend down to tie my right shoe. I remember having the light sensitivity issue that Al Toon spoke of (spent about 3 months in late '91 in a dark basement, because of it). There are other more serious symptoms, but not worth listing on an Internets Message Board.

Everyone doesn't need to be treated like a delicate little snowflake, but we need to be aware of potential symptoms.

I have had 2 that I know of. The last one I didn't get treated. For 2 months I would have waves of nausea with shooting stars and difficulty remembering easy things. Like my dogs name. This was probably 7 or so years ago. I know if it ever happens again, I will follow the prescribed method for getting well - a dark room for a couple of weeks. No reading, no TV, no stimulation. The shit is not a joke.
