    We have to see this process first before anything is changed

    IF there is a switch in helments, they better invent the next generation of that mushroom head. Cause that thing is terrible to look at and according to anyone mic'd up it makes them feel goofy.

    Cant roll that version out on future Sundays.

    Feel goofy is ok, feeling uncomfortable is different. I think it’s “goofy” because it’s not what they’ve been wearing forever and are probably worried about how people look at them wearing it. They’ll get over that if it is eventually implemented full time. A couple player advocates on safety would help that.

    I hope a safer helmet limits the rules on bigger hits. Havent been a fan of many of the rules installed under the guise of “safety”. It has led to some terrible calls and eliminated some really exciting plays.
    It also appears to allow some favoritism, ie. Guys like Brady getting calls.

    NFL players are paid handsomely to be human explosive devices…

    There's way too much emphasis on what the players look like. It's not a f^&king fashion show. They should have the best protective gear they can wear while allowing full range of motion and speed. We want to see the best athletes compete against each other without getting injured. If you're more concerned with them not looking like a Roman warrior, then maybe you should focus your attention on MMA or WWF.

    Nah, I prefer meat missiles full speed over the middle impacts, or something like our BDH unhinged head on at full speed against a linebacker begging not to be there! That’s what keeps me interested. Football ain’t duck duck goose. At least it wasn’t a time ago. Monkey Pox sounds more appealing.

    Football is a collision sport not a contact sport....if they can develop technology of the guardian caps, why can't they put it into the helmets for full season benefits not just TC?

    Is that what those are called lol

    I first saw them on some college teams.

    I think Saleh and Watt are right, they make good points.
