.....maybe for the same reason they've told football players for years not to worry about head trauma, now the focus of lawsuits. They work for the team and their job, in violation of their Hippocratic oath, is to keep the players playing. Football, it should be noted, also involves very little sustained exertion. An ESPN study putting a stopwatch to games found an average of between 11 and 12 minutes of actual action in a football game. (Dividing among offense, defense and special teams, that's about 5 minutes of exertion per player in a game.)
