The folly of the proposal is evident in the first few grafs of this story.
Look, folks: concussions are VERY serious, especially with young people. Nobody wants to see it happen; nobody wants to make it worse if it DOES happen.
But note well: the player here did NOT tell his coach that he had suffered a concussion--the player didn't know it. Further, even though he told his father that 'his head hurt,' his father told him to 'take an aspirin.' Was the father an un-caring jerk? Not likely, folks.
So the Legislature would make this kid's father a lawbreaker? And what then? Put him in prison?
The Legislature cannot write a law requiring kids to self-report concussions. It's folly.
But it's "Feel Good", ain'a?
