Freak accident happens, of course.
Blaming is easy, of course.
But to have your products on the floor, being cleared of their nagging injuries before they go through proper evaluations to determine the best timetable and highest percentage for any of your body parts to heal close to 100%, that would definitely fall with the medical staff.
Sure, you don't want to blame the medical staff and let's just say it's the players that are responsible for their injuries. Okay, fair enough, now, let's say I am the team doctor and all examination and evaluation goes through me and which the Front Office will get my results once I am done.
I say that Eric Bledsoe is great to play within 3 months after his surgery. I've checked everything and his knee has healed. I give him and the team the "thumbs up". He gets back and play and occur soreness, which allowed him to rest on back to backs game schedule and eventually, tear that same knee again within a 5 game span. Choose your own schedule, will you.
Now, is that the players fault for doing certain movements or going at certain speed?
Or, is that the Medical teams fault for clearing him even though he passed MY health evaluation?
