Nice to see the teammates of the hittee not freaking out about a clean hit for once.

I don’t find concussions entertaining, but I find the celebrating hits that look almost certain to cause a concussion to be reckless. It was a by the book hit, but who really celebrates injuries? The Toronto announcers came off as meatheads.

@redxblack - what are the supposed to do? Diagnose a concussion on the spot or get caught up in the emotion of a big play by one of their hometown players?

Loosen up or go watch a non-contact sport.
