After reading his latest column I was excited to share what a brilliant profession we are in and compose a well thought out and professional response. Heck, me waiting 12 hours to let it sink in was a HUGE leap for a guy like me.
I was all geared up about showing the flaw in his example of an ambulance driver and to let the world know that he was egging us all on by BLATANTLY showing disrespect by not using the term athletic trainer, it was going to be great. I had it written and was thinking of a great title……….. But you know what, he is in the minority, he is uneducated about the profession and even though many tried to educate him he continued with the drivel.
He is paid to give his opinion — right or wrong — however there is no need to link his page and give him and The Morning Call the satisfaction of more views. I just hope he does not have the unfortunate circumstance of having a loved one treated by a physician who knows nothing about the assessment and treatment of concussions and is returned to play too soon, just blindly trusting them because of the MD behind their name.
That is all.
