Here is some food for thought. I am in no way trying to excuse Tootoo's act, but let me just submit this question posing as an armchair psychologist.

What part of Tootoo became an instinctive self-preservational act?

Hmm, no wonder Modano isn't the captain anymore? Morrow would have pounded Tootoo

Just by looking into an issue, it brings attention to it" Dr. Johnson, neurologist
What kind of professional advice is that. The problem with these so called "Concussion experts", is the only players they ever see are in post concussion. They have no clue how to prevent a concussion.
The TooToo hit was clearly a blow to the jaw. Marvin Hagler endured thousands of blows to the jaw of similar force and was never knocked down. A medical device he helped develop creates a class three fulcrum on the back molars, rocking the mandible away from the skull.( get out the physics 101 book). Preventing a concussion from a blow to the jaw is not the work of a neurologist. The NFL and Riddell have determined 70% originate from blows to the jaw and 30% from blows to the crown of the head. Both having different symptoms and severity, you are more likely to be knocked unconcious by a blow to the jaw (boxing). Even more serious, Parkinsons, Alzeimers and brain desease are found to be linked to blows to the jaw (pugilistica demetia, boxing).
You only have to see the neurologist to find out how bad your concussion is. The most unbelievable thing about the Shanahan situation is, his hometown of Duxbury MA is where we certified one of our first dentists to make this retainer like mouth guard. The world will soon wake up to this ground breaking medical discovery. Until then the "concussion experts " will vasilate on and on about how bad the injury is, it 's absolutley disgusting governing bodies aren't open to new ideas. www.mahercor
