Am I The Only Person

that thinks that Fields finished the game with broken ribs? Am I the only person that thinks Fields was able to finish the game with broken ribs because the Ohio State Medical Staff gave Fields pain killers? Am I the only person that believes this is exactly what happened and that it’s medically unethical?

Got it. So the Coaching Staff and the Medical Staff bare no responsibility for doing what is best for the player? The Coaching Staff and the Medical Staff’s responsibility is to just do what the player wants?

Good to know. I guess we can scrap all this concussion protocol garbage then, huh?

You may be right but you fall short of any evidence.

Well, my eyes saw something and that something looked exactly like broken ribs.

Evidence would be good. Where might that evidence come from? Maybe the Medical Staff? You don’t find the silence deafening?

I also think that they are broken

Why else would the doctors not give him an official diagnosis? Even today they won’t.

They want to be able to play him for the title game

Nope, I texted my buddy late 2nd quarter and said "Fields has broken ribs, can't throw, and we still can't stop Sermon from getting a 1st down". Then all of a sudden he comes out the 2nd half and looks like Tom Brady...

I think so too, but we’re not on the sidelines so no use in speculating. I hope fields is ok. He is a good kid and obviously has some guts to finish that game.

individual if you think that doesn't happen on a weekly basis, at a whole lot of places. Maybe even us. Did you not notice Henry barely making it off the field limping, badly, and then back in playing just a little while later with seemingly little evidence of prior injury?

the green light and the player feels like he can play, then I'm all for it. If we are pumping them full of pain meds to mask a more severe injury then that's another thing all together and they can all go to hayull.

when asked about Field's injury. He said something like "It doesn't matter, he's got to play".

A player's opinion never overrides a physician's opinion.

Am I the only person that is disgusted by the fact that you’re hating on a player for finishing the game despite getting a dirty hit from our notoriously dirtiest player?

Question:

If the kids ribs are merely bruised, is it OK to give him painkillers for the 2nd half ??
