I think people are forgetting when comparing common sports injuries (tendinitis, achilles sprains, knee pain, overuse injuries etc) to CrossFit rhabdo and SLAP tears... Rhabdo takes 6 days of intensive medical care day and night in a hospital, SLAP tears cost what, a $20,000 surgery bill (guess)? That can't be compared to common sports injuries of triathletes that can be healed with 3 weeks of inactivity. If someone's arms swell up like balloons and they ignore it for 2 weeks they're dead.
