Using Your Head and Your Heart
This is the beginning of your stereotypical essay about player safety in the appropriately dangerous sport of Quidditch. This is the part where I say that we need to be more careful and that the game can be unsafe. This is the part where I say that things need to be changed and that the sport must evolve before it’s too late. This is the end of your stereotypical essay about player safety in the ridiculously and inherently dangerous sport of Quidditch.
This is where I mean it.
This is beyond your sprained ankles and cut elbows. This is about your head. This is about your brain. This is about something that is undeniably important. This is about something that is criminally overlooked. This is something that everybody needs to care about.
But hardly anybody does.
I think Quidditch is too dangerous.
This is definitely something that needed to be addressed. I got a concussion from a Ref training match back before World Cup V when the IQA was first scoping out Randalls Island.
I can personally say that snitches from now on, at least the certified snitches, will be much safer. The primary focus during the certification process is ensuring safety of players and spectators.
