    Weird world today:

    Given all the fuss about head injuries in contact sports and the introduction of head injury assessments in sports such as rugby, where players leave the field to be checked as to whether they should continue, the spectacle from yesterday is interesting.

    A participant has had a solid whack in the head, the assessment is the ref saying “You okay?” and he continued. Continued so the other guy could try to whack him in the head again. Continued to the tributes later about how tough he is.

    “And Tyson Fury was flat on his back in the boxing ring at the Staples Center in LA with his eyes closed, his 2-metres tall body motionless and his medical condition in question.”
