But, but, but, he's had 1000 concussions! His family clearly doesn't have his best interests at heart. What about the fans? Doesn't he care about what we think? I'M concerned for his well being! And I am not fully supportive of his decision! Ya know, cause I care about him so much...
Anyway we definitely should have gone with Hossa back in 09. Kenny sucks.
These reports are making Franzen sound far from lazy...
The sarcasm and straw man fallacies from the Franzen police are getting old.
Switch out Cleary for Franzen in these discussions. Cleary still thinks he can contribute to the Red Wings. He likely has the full support of his family too, so I guess we shouldn't express any hesitation or criticism of his wishes. After all, he and the team know better than we do. And he's been training hard this off season after all.
Heaven forbid someone state an opinion about a player on a Red Wings fan forum, even if it contradicts the wishes of the player himself or his family.
Okay I don't know what beef you guys had in 2009 about Hossa/Franzen, since I didn't join here till 2013 but apparently this is some deep seeded stuff.
S*** must have gone down bad in these forums the last half decade or so.
Can we stick to the matter at hand please.
Do we know of any athlete who has done this similar type of approach? It sounds like he's not cleared but he's pushing himself. What I'd like to know is, if this has worked in the past.
And I mean specific to traumatic brain injury, not "I hurt my back" or "my knee is bad"
I've not heard of any athlete who's done this kind of approach, not to say it hasn't happened.
Though honestly it seems pretty stupid on Franzen's part if he's not working closely with a neurologist throughout his rehab. I understand the reasoning he's using but is it based on any evidence or sound medical reasoning? He may be delaying his recovery instead of accelerating it.
