The mindset that MM has is the same mindset that set Jordan and Ali apart from their peers but as shone through with Ali it can have it's downsides. Most athletes are goal driven and the next goal is always the most important.
Yes, the CTE thing is a case in point more generally in contact sports in regard to the disregard of athletes, traditionally at least, for there own future welfare.

Mick Doohan's fractured leg and early return is another example

I was watching the last dance doco a while back and when Jordan got injured and ended up going back to college he went against doctors advice/orders and was playing basketball, exercising etc. it worked out great for him and but it could have quite as easily gone the other way.

I’ll echo Michael m re: Misfit’s evaluations. Cool having you in house experts on this forum!

I look forward to MM’s return, whenever it is. For sure we’ve never seen anything like him and I hope he’ll make a fortuitous recovery so that we can see more of it!

Man, just read on crash that an infection has been found in his broken arm. Supposedly from one of the previous surgeries?

This is getting darker.

Pseudarthrosis or nonunion is a disease that occurs when a broken bone fails to heal after a fracture unless intervention (surgery) is performed. The fracture structurally resembles a fibrous joint, and for this reason, is called “false joint” or pseudoarthrosis.

I can't add more, as first I've ever heard of the word, and I'm no Dr. Maybe others can elaborate.

Perhaps the newly needed surgeries and infection are from the lack of proper care by Mr MM following his first surgery?
All MM had to do was sit out a few races at the start of the season following the first race, recover and prepare for the rest of the season... instead he tried to be superMM and come back way way before he should have come back.... The buck stops with MM on this one...not the doctors or his management or HRC....

Marquez is far from the first or at current rate the last to suffer. Look at our much revered past champions. It’s not a good look for the sport.

We could take the opportunity to look back and find statistically speaking most of our top and most talented riders have either retired by injury or been lost to the sport entirely, catastrophic included. Sure, we could blame the riders. Alternatively, blame the sport. In Australia we have a highly injury prone sport called rugby league. History indicates if left to the athlete they will tend to suffer injury, even brain damage, simply because the athlete is conditioned to compete at all cost. That’s how you win. Through scrutiny and past player physiological records Rugby League was forced at least in regards to concussion to clean up it’s act.

Motogp I don’t see it, history indicates it can’t be left to the athlete or the team. An independent body, not affected by the financial situation of the sport? I guess it’s possible.

They are a convenient scapegoat for him,but HRC ultimately should have the best doctors on the golden goose.

They let the goose go sky-diving and will continue to pay the price.
