This is in fact at the root of a lot of the problem. Both because the players WANT to play for their own reasons AND because they know their value to the employer / team depends on them being on the field. Oh, AND because they’re “thinking” with a damaged organ. Football needs several things, including even better helmets, maybe with neck protection… but definitely a team of concussion specialists paid by the LEAGUE, not the team who won’t let you out of the tent if they have ANY doubt. And fines for not entering the tent if you got creamed.
