The Jablonski thing was just out of control. I got sick of it after a while. It was like, I remember two kids that got paralyzed when I was growing up (one by Mr. Hockey who was just two years older than me playing for the Governors in Pee-Wee. They forced him to move to Bantams after that he was such a dominant player).

But PC has run amok.

However, now that I say that, I am not sure "big hits" are the problem in concussions. I almost see more concussions from a well placed shoulder or elbow to the heads, which you could maybe limit through cracking down on hits to the head.

But there isn't going to be a good solution.
No, there isn't. I do though see the political correctness starting to take grips EVERYWHERE in society. That said, please ban the fighting before you ban the hits. Please, for God's sake.

The know-it-alls that we all hated in grade school now run everything.
Ha, that's true. The wishy washy ones who never threw a ball or took or threw a hit in their lives.
