Sports Edge (Channel 8 News) follow up to the YDN article magnifies the dissatisfaction expressed by Varga and others.

The longterm fallout from this is the Yale athletes will be taken care of better in the future. The short term fallout could be an impact on recruiting.

I recommend reading the full article from the Yale Daily News. Looks like we're getting closer to solving the football injury mystery thanks to the excellent reporting of the Yale Daily News.

I find it very concerning that a QB struggling with arm pain wasn't sent to get an MRI immediately. What's even more concerning is that surgery was the first plan of action after finding a rotator cuff tear in the throwing arm of that QB. This has nothing to due with staff size, and much more to do with the athletic specific experience possessed by team doctors.

Uh oh--is Yale going to get sued by a bunch of these poorly treated kids?

For a student athlete, sports medicine is an easy problem to get caught up in. You really don't know the quality of care you will receive until something happens. The article makes it seem like negligence occurred.

In Varga's case I sympathize with the issue but as I recall, he did not go to Yale for the chance of an NFL career. He had plenty of other offers, including scholarship schools with top sports medicine facilities. What he experienced was unfair but if he really wanted to roll the dice he could have gone for an independent second opinion. If surgery was needed he could have made some kind of financial agreement since he probably did not have medical insurance beyond the university.

If I am gearing up for an NFL combine and a shot at millions, I am doing everything I can to get my body ready. That is unless Varga just planned to go on to med school like he originally stated when he committed to Yale.

I can't believe some of you are defending this. Extraordinary numbers of our athletes are being injured, and it seems like this was partially due to inadequate care.

Yale has the resources to provide the best care, and should have provided the best care possible. What's the point of having 26 billion dollars if we can't look after our students?

I thought Yale New Haven hospital was supposed to be world class, I would think they would have a specialist or 5 for each type of sports injury. I guess it must be a long drive from campus to get there

Agree with Bulldog1234. Still no response from Beckett, Reno, et al on this troubling situation exposed by the YDN. Is there no one accountable for this?

Yale would have been much better off losing the Harvard game and seeing Reno get fired.
