Recent Example (one of many) of player self-diagnoses gone wrong: Lappy.
So? If a player is hurt and doesn't come forward, or if they misdiagnose themselves, that is their own fault. If teams want to prevent that, then they should have contractual clauses which deal with such scenarios. If the player signs, then he is bound. That is voluntary.
