“I don’t know why you try to correct what’s working. The hits are always part of the game.
I had a twitter account a few years ago and you look at guys going over to Iraq and Afghanistan and they’re doing it for their country and they’re not getting compensated near as much as we are so why do we have to take less risks than them? That’s part of the sport. We get paid huge money to do it and most of the time you get paid big money it comes with a lot of risks involved and we’re compensated.
We know that risk when we step on the ice so you go along with it, so everybody just shut up! These guys are going overseas spending nine months away from their wives and kids and risk their lives and do it for x amount of dollars, and we’re going to sit here and cry because one guy’s making $5 million and he’s out with a concussion then shame on us,”.
-Krys Barch of the Florida Panthers on the on-going discussion on how to prevent concussions, etc. More on the Panthers from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel.
