My Tua Take: I hope the Dolphins gett destroyed over that they did from top to bottom.

The Dolphins are a nihilistic organization. Owner Ross openly pushed for Flores to tank the year. Flores refused, so Ross fired him.

They bring in this clown McDaniels, who strikes me as a puppet for ownership no matter how much the media blows smoke up his ass.

Last week against Buffalo, the Milano hit was serious and that whiplash on the turf was serious. He was wobbly, his legs weren't wrong, and he was holding his head. Clearly they lied about passing concussion protocol, all for a victory in an early season game. Then they trot him out there on three days rest after the game played six inches from Hell.

They lied on the injury report, they lied to the media, and they probably told Tua he would be playing because, even though Ross is "suspended," his words will still make it to the coach's desk.

So they did. . .and did you see the sack that knocked him out of the game? His body froze. His fingers stretched out disjointedly in an pattern most seizure and stroke patient have. Tua was led to the slaughter all for a W. Tua was used the way most NFL teams use their show monkeys. . .grind them until they break, then off to the glue factory. Usually people get kissed before they get fucked, but not NFL players.

The sad truth is when this happens, no one really cares at next game's kickoff. Alex Smith, Joe Theisman, Drew Bledsoe, RG3, Teddy Bridgewater, Willis McGahee, Bo Jackson, Tua. All played until their broke with catastrophic injuries, all shown the dog food factory.

Player safety is as much a joke to the NFL as that useless Rooney Rule. When it comes down to it, it's a business and the business of business is to make money. Tua being trotted out there was just a symptom of the NFL's terminal illness of Greed while worshipping the God of the Almighty Dollar. The Dolphins are going to have another scandal on their hands. That's the truth. And it couldn't happen to a more classless, worthless franchise.

I hope they lose the rest of the year and everyone loses their jobs over this. . .the GM down to the assistant to the assistant coach over cleaning jock strap's assistant. All for a few more dollars in profit.

Sad how valueless people are. . .but we should have seen it coming, especially when the Personnel Department was changed to Human Resources, and now is called Human Capital. We are no different than a machine in the eyes of businesses. . .and the NFL is probably the worst of the bunch. I hope you recover, Tua, but I would understand if doctors and your family tell you to retire.

Your organization killed you on Thursday. . .maybe you should return the favor by killing their chances this year. There are things more important than football. Potentially permanent neurological damage is one of them.

1. I fear that bringing Tua back in the game.....

could have caused more brain damage.

3. Even being a fan of an AFC East rival

I hope the best for this young man. He seems to be a rare talent and could have a very promising career. After the Dolphins trade him to a decent franchise.

4. "And it couldn't happen to a more classless, worthless franchise."

Pretty much sums it up. I can't believe "back injury" was repeatedly said with a straight face this past week. Everyone in that organization knew the score, and they're all culpable for the ramifications this young man will suffer. Shame on them all.

5. one thing that really infuriated me was

Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit going on and on about McDaniel being a "players' coach" and so "authentic," which can only be true if you believe players want to be concussed multiple times a week and have a coach who's willing to lie about it. It even took Amazon until 10:00 left in the 4th to dust off the ancient video from, oh, Sunday, to show what happened in the Buffalo game. They then cut out the part where Tua stumbles and has to be helped off the field--and Michaels makes it worse by dutifully and uncritically repeating the NFL line that it was merely a back injury.

The post-game was just as bad because Tony Gonzalez has such Stockholm Syndrome that he wanted to paint the league and team working in the best interests of Tua....and then they broadcast a snippet of McDaniel's press conference and behaved as if he should be beatified because he said he was upset by what happened to Tua. (He also said he was glad it was "only" a brain injury, which I guess says everything you need to know about how coaches, or at least some coaches, still think about CTE.)
