I know it seems like I'm taking the issue lightly, but I think it is more of the opposite, there is way too much overreaction on this forum in particular.

Richards will get his contract, and he will play the same way he always did. I guarantee it. GMs have access to medical records, we don't, considering Richards medical history, a concussion is the smallest of factors when they decide on his value.
Also his age, small injury history, mostly just ding worthy for 5 or so games but occassional big injuries too, his contract demand both length and cash wise and our history with meeting those demands. All totals up to "Stop giving us reasons to dislike this possible signing" but the hits keep coming.
