    I agree with Watts take. I don’t think moving the “shock” of the first hit to week 1 (of the preseason) will really have any bearing but it does seem odd they’re super worried in training camp but not at all concerned during games.

    they do look funny, but if this was pushed as the norm all the time, people would get passed that quickly, and really F the people calling for “wussification” of the NFL. Head trauma limitations are good. Hands off rules and don’t touch the QB rules are bad.

    It was weird when hockey started with shields. Now it’s the norm.

    The league seems worried about uniform colors and such, I’d think they’d see issue with penis helmets all over

    I think this opens the door to that happening.

    Apparently the NFL is funding this all too.

    Not sure if its to cover their own asses after ignoring the issue for so long or if this is the future of football.

    Probably a little bit of both. I honestly argue their liability historically in a profession built around physical combat, but I know the story is there that they “knew” but did nothing.
    We may also be seeing less kids pursuing football because of parental concerns for head injuries, so it will affect the future. Plenty of other factors there, but I think that’s a legit concern for NFL.

    Parents are already holding their kids out of football.

    My town had 6 middle school teams they were forced to merge into 1 city team and change leagues because of parents getting scared off when that movie Concussion came out.

    So it would almost be beneficial to rip of the band aid of goofy looking padded helmets and just implement. Could mean the future of the sport.
