As the NFLPA has started its investigation into Tua Tagovailoa’s concerning injury, 7xSuper Bowl Champ – Tom Brady spoke about the life endearing injuries and blows NFL athletes have to endure and sustain throughout their career. He even went onto condemn the medical staff for leaving the same athlete in a miserable state, in perhaps the most physical sport.
To those who are not fully aware, Miami Dolphins’ marquee QB sustained a brutal blow in the team’s showdown against the Buffalo Bills. Although he was visibly shaken and could not stand up upon his feet promptly, the medical staff gave him the green flag to continue in the game despite concussion fears.
After which the Miami Dolphins sensation suffered another hard hit in the very next encounter against the Cincinnati Bengals. Which he surely could not endure for long. Tua Tagovailoa was immediately taken to the local hospital. Which made many, including Tom Brady wonder upon the thorough safety measures taken by the respective medical staff.
What was opinionated by Tom Brady?
Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ main-man – Tom Brady put forward the idea of the medical staff and personnel working in a way that injuries could be sustained before they actually take place.
He quoted, “I think we athletes have been educated so poorly. And the people are educated poorly because there’s a system that’s in place that makes a lot of money from things when they go wrong. That’s the reality of life.”
Tua’s injury is just a wakeup sign for the rest of the league, and Tom Brady is only making everyone aware of it. Given that Brady is already in his 23rd NFL Season, he surely has more knowledge that the entire modern-day players combined. Having witnessed several career-ending injuries and tears to respective teammates and opponents, perhaps it is time to take Tom Brady’s advice a little more seriously.
