The list goes on forever. There are ways to fix this problem. We can eliminate the amount of concussions that happen during the football season by having stricter penalties, more stringent concussion protocol, and better equipment for the head. Having stricter penalties is a key part in eliminating the amount of concussions that occur during the NFL season. Referees will be particularly alert to fouls in which defenders purposely use the helmet and/or facemask to hit the passer, or use hands, arms, or other parts of the body to hit the passer forcibly in the head or neck area (“Rule 12 Player”).
"Unlike a broken ankle, or other injuries you can feel with your hands, or seen on an x-ray, a concussion is a disruption of how the brain works”- USA Football (Kuwana, Ellen). You can say concussions are part of human nature; it happens every time, both in sports and daily life. Concussions are fatal injuries with possible long-term effects; it must be taken seriously, should not be stereotyped, as minor injuries and equipment must be improved through science in order to deal with the seriousness of concussions.

For instance, the boys on the football team had a special bond together, but now they were all fighting because of
But rugby has enforced rules that stop people from tackling high or around the shoulders. When a player tackles they can't lead with their head either. Rugby is much safer than its thought to be.

To decrease the number of concussions a year the National Football League must issue more rules and better quality equipment. Despite the tackling and wanting to " knock out " an opponent of the other team, football players need to transition their mindsets to a different objective. Instead of wanting to hurt the opponent or lay them out, just focus on getting them down.

If NFL and other sports organizations create a great mental health program for current and ex-players suffering from concussion, the idea of concealment and distrust of those organizations will disappear by good deeds and create a philanthropic company figure for the

Culture: The organizational culture of the NFL has to make a cultural shift to change the “warrior mentality” of players unwilling to disclose when they are hurt. The stakeholders of these games must think about the long-term implications of their actions. Team doctors and coaches need to rethink the terms of being injured and being hurt and start to think of players in a sense of human beings not as property or assets. As a kid growing up, my coaches often asked members of my teams where we hurt or injured, I never knew the difference.
