It doesn't matter how good the medical staff is unless the culture changes. I'm torn between helpless sorrow for the family and friends of this young man and anger that such a wasteful death occurred when there was so much that could have been done if there had been adequate communication and solid priorities. I hope there is some serious outreach and education going on. Nobody needs blame. We do need action. The stupid thing is that most concussions can be recovered from well unless you go out and reinjure the brain while it's trying to heal, and that's what happens. And concussions themselves can influence decision-making and ability to rationally think through the big picture so it can't all be on the kid. Even if they didn't, they're very young men who rely heavily on the approval of others. We need to recognize and reward decisions that lead to long-term ability rather than conflating toughness with willingness to play no matter what.
But without practical solutions, mostly the anger just serves to distract from the sadness. This is unbelievable. It shouldn't have happened. I'm so sorry for everyone involved.
