I had suffered five shoulder dislocations and even that I'm not athletic, I can assure you that if you pop it back fast, you can keep going without much suffering. Not advisable, but doable. During my worst injury it took about 3 hours to get it back and it took me 45 days to recover.

I'm so sick and tired of idiots complaining about football players. That's basic principle of game theory : don't blame the players, blame the game. Football players are not fragile, they're just playing on a set of rules where diving and faking injuries has a very positive outcome. You're very rarely punished for it and very often the opponent is punished. Recently, in the UFC, Aljemain Sterling faked a concussion after an illegal knee in the head, so he won the fight. Is he fragile or a pussy ? No, he's just taking advantage of the rules. I guarantee you football player are tough as nails, even the professional fakers like Neymar. They just use every trick in the book, no matter how dirty.

Because you don't win races by getting in your opponents head, but by finishing first. But yeah, soccer bad.

I popped my shoulder whilst playing football once and then popped it back myself and continued playing. However, if this was the supercross guy’s first time dislocating his shoulder, he most likely would have been in quite a bit of pain and not continued. Once you’ve dislocated it once, it’s easier to dislocate from then on. It’s also usually less painful and if set back you can continue doing what you were doing.

A possibility of lifelong shoulder issues for a race no one but him will remember. Worth it? Maybe...

AC 92 has a lot of heart. I'm so sad he has such a bad luck. He deserve better. He should have at least 2 sx titles.

Of course they're not, it's a different sport. It's not like a biker would get an advantage for getting a dislocated shoulder.
