Tabitha's records will tell one way or the other, but I believe this year
had fewer injuries than previous ones - on the field and off.

Lots of injuries?  Worked quite a bit with the chirurgeonate this year and
don't recall that many injuries.  Definitely nothing above normal it seems.
Now if any others out there know of more injuries I would like to know for
our records.  There was one person who was hit excessively and knocked
unconscious for a bit but I don't know that he did end up with a concussion
since I don't think he went to a medical facility for an x-ray.  The one
person we thought might have had broken ribs didn't end up with anything
other than bruising, thankfully.  I don't know the results of the second
injury in the rib/abdominal area.  
But other than a few minor incidents I really think this war came off with
less injuries than in the past.
Please note that these are my opinions and mine only.  They do not reflect
an official statement from the chirurgeonate and in no way should be
construed to represent any statement by the chirurgenate.   If someone has
other information I am more than willing to be proven wrong.  But I hope I
am not.  I prefer to think we are actually getting better at preventing
injuries in this game :)

caused by excessive force. There were several concussions, cracked ribs, and
at least one broken hand. injuries like this are un-necessary. We do this
for fun, and while minor injuries are bound to happen, severe injuries
should not be expected.
