    Doesn’t really make sense logically. Why would the protocol not keep guys out longer. It is certainly a step forward. My concern is that even after they can pass the protocol, their brains are still vulnerable to the next hit for a while. Then again, there could be some circumventing of the protocol going on.

    The concussion protocol is a farce. It is only used for PR. The tremendous velocities and force leave the brain zero protection. The analogy is it is like an egg, in jello, in a car accident. Zero protection.
