    As far as my tag .... if you'll notice the avatar it's a play on Ren and Stimpy.  I feel really bad for you if you either can't get that or have so little brainpower that the best comeback you can make is calling me stupid or an idiot.    I like intellectual conversations with evidence and and a point ... if all you're capable of is calling people names please feel free to go to the Nickelodeon or Disney  bulletin boards and argue about Hannah Montana or the Jonas Brothers or something.

    Who in the hell are Ren and Stimpy?  Ironic that you talk about wishing to have intellectual conversations, and slam those you consider incapable of them by referring them to the very networks that likely provided YOU the content for your cartoon avatar and board name.

    Further, how in the world would you expect anyone to consider you intellectual when it is clear that you so easily let your fandom get the best of you.  Your words:  "As a matter of fact, teams oughta start airing that play in the stadium everytime they play the Colts to emphasize how the league makes consistent bad calls in favor of the Colts (especially their passing game)."  How insensitive is that? 

    Finally, Samuel was not even involved in the play.  He was playing "man" on an outside receiver.  He started complaining within 5 seconds of the hit.  Then, more than a minute later Samuel prances angrily within a foot of Collie's injured head and the medical staff attending to him in TOTAL DISREGARD of the situation.  Incorrect call or not this dude needs to check himself. 

    And because you seem unwilling to get this yourself ("As far as Samuel's reaction....Samuels makes a good play and celebrates and people are on his case cause he's a DB." - your words), you need to as well.  You don't even have the details of the event correct.

    I see your negative spin here TP, so I have to respond. 

    Mayo Clinic defines diagnosis of concussion by doing a neurological exam checking, memory, concentration, hearing, balance, coordination, reflexes.  Further there is the question of recurring headaches. 

    If Collie passes those tests and all others required and says he hasn't had a headaches, etc., then why wouldn't he be cleared to play?  As you know there are many players that are willing to "mask/deny" symptoms in order to get themselves back on the field.  Collie seems to me like that kind of a guy.  And we don't even know if this is correct.  The fact is Collie may actually have been in good shape to play.  He took some good hits on his catches, which may have retriggered the symptoms. 

    The point of this is that you are making a claim ("the circumstantial evidence seems to clearly indicate that Collie was rushed back before he was ready to play") that you have zero ability to substantiate. 

    Collie's not out there saying the colts made me play with an injury.  didn't a patriot once claim this about Belichick?

    The bottom line is that, once a concussion has been diagnosed, Collie's ability to play is no longer a decsion the team can make. If the league is bringing in "independent neurologists" (as the new rules indicate) and players are either bamboozling them or they are simply continuing to be schills for the team, that is another discussion entirely. But the leage has, in fact, taken steps to prevent teams from "rushing players back" (or players from rushing themselves back, if you believe the doctors really are "independent").
