"If you're serious about concussions, shouldn't you have a "punishment fit the crime" consequence?"

You just made a statement that treated, as an assumption, the idea that everyone is serious about about concussions. Why?

Posit: Not everyone is serious about concussions. This is why initiatives to date have been slow, piecemeal, and half-hearted.

We are certainly not about to see the NHL ban all hits to the head. A certain amount of violence, and tolerance for the odd player's career flaming out as a result of head hits, may be considered acceptable by the self-appointed Stewards of the Game. It's a blood sport mindset.
