Not going to get into economics (I have strong beliefs), but I'm not buying it. Sure if you drop the price a bunch, you might get some off the edge, but people freely spend foolishly, and typically more than willing to do it on sports and "fun" when they shouldn't. I think the issue is 90% performance based.
Improved news, if true, yet still not good ( and I haven't seen that verified) ... at least yet. This from Dr Chao-
"This injury has potentially more long-lasting consequences even if it doesn’t require surgery.
Unfortunately, this injury can have long-term implications even without fracture, as the blood flow to the femoral head can be disrupted leading to avascular necrosis where the bone and then cartilage dies out becomes arthritic. Quick action with reduction ( my input- which I believe was accomplished, on field: no anesthesia! ) will lessen this risk."
"In my career as a head team physician, I treated an NFL player who dislocated his hip in similar fashion. We were able to successfully reduce the hip on the sidelines, and the player returned in eight weeks and even caught a touchdown pass in his second game back, but he did not play after that year."
"We will have to see how this plays out, but this injury will almost certainly affect Tagovailoa’s draft position and possibly his career."
Hoping for the best for the young man.
you just literally said
it's well documented his progression issues, lack of downfield success, and open WRs downfield.
If it's constant, it's because there are constant hot takes like yours that defy what is known, and look for every reason in the world to deflect.
