instead of investing in new technology for their equipment, the NFL is simply changing the rules which will ultimately end up changing the way the game is played.

imo the NFL needs to investigate not just new helmet designs for aesthetics, but for safety as well. There's a TON of new material in development or already on the market that, if the NFL would back, could be hugely marketable.

A lot of players are wearing helmets that were designed over a decade ago, in the 90s. Instead of changing rules, how about the NFL open up its check book?

here's one of the materials the NFL should investigate..

In collision type injuries, It's not just the impact of the helmet hitting the head, but also the brain hitting the skull. Improving the first doesn't necessarily improve the second.

no, but it can seriously lessen the impact, which in result would lower the speed in which the brain does bounce around in the skull.

short of wiring the brain to the skull so it doesnt move, theres nothing you can do to completely stop the movement of the brain, but you can absorb and disperse the energy of the impact to give the brain a surviving chance.

this goes along with firefighters having "too safe" of equipment. they no longer can sense when a fire is dangerous, unlike the past, and take dangerous risks.

that is why the no helmet concept was proposed. if these guys have full body armor, that will only allow them to play with a more reckless abandon, which isnt safe at all.

the behavior needs to be changed along with the equipment.

right, and lets drive cars with no airbags, seatbelts or steel frames.

that'll teach the wreckless drivers!

Agreed.

Let's be real, the only way to end the really bad injuries is if you take off the pads.

Taking off helmets will remove 100% of helmet to helmet collisions
