    Ummmm How are y'all completely disregarding 1983 Daingerfield? Best defense to ever step foot on the field in my opinion. Zero defensive or special teams points allowed in 16 games National record 14 shutouts 76 defensive points scored PF 631 PA 8 8 points allowed all season 6 points on a pick 6, two points on a safety snapped over the punters head.

    CTE at high school level

    So now with all of that data I think we can come to the conclusion that yes better helmets will marginally improve the rate of concussions. However I believe all of the above info has a far greater impact on rate of concussion then helmets. But you start changing and taking out all that stuff now you're changing the game completely and watering it down which will have unimplied consequences. Whether y'all want to admit it or not, violence is what get most fans' attention. You take that out of the game and fan interest will wane. Once that happens all those scholarships you think all of these players are entitled to will dwindle. Every action has a reaction. Here's the answer in the most simple form. Football is unsustainable to play without the risk of concussion.

    CTE at high school level

    Physics is my proof, an unatural playing surface is proved to make players faster. Higher speeds = more momentum. More momentum = bigger collisions. Bigger collisions = more concussions https://concussionfoundation.org/sites/default/files/Learning Center/The Role of Synthetic Turf in Concussion_0.pdf Spread offense, less players in more space = a wider window of closing space resulting in bigger collisions. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4687838/ HUNH offense = defensive players fatigued more often = players not being able to protect themselves as well. Also more plays = more chances for concussions. https://www.al.com/sports/2014/02/what_does_science_say_about_hu.html Punt/punt return = A lot of players running at each other at a high rate of speed with a lot of space in between. High potential for peel back blindside blocks Kick/Kick return See punt above Plenty of data there, read away.

    Why are we just relegating this topic to equipment? Contributions to concussions: Field turf Spread offense HUNH offense Punt/punt return Kick/kick return Interception returns blindside hits

    Maybe they should start?

    CTE at high school level

    It's almost like you forget that this game has been played for 150 years, sometimes with no helmet, leather helmet, suspension helmet, etc. Yes some of those guys died/fucked up their brains. A whole bunch more didn't. I mean we're talking about Millions of men that have played football vs maybe 1000 confirmed CTE cases. Maybe those numbers will change. What to you is an acceptable % of CTE vs non CTE retired players? I'm fine with you wanting players to wear the best equipment available. But to somehow force the league to subsidize that is ridiculous. Put on a car wash or a fundraiser and buy it as a team.

    How is it hard to figure out running into people as fast as you can over a long period of time is probably bad for your health? When you sign up to play, you accept those facts imho.

    Nobody knows yet.

    CTE at high school level

    The problem with your premise is most players develop CTE in the higher levels of the game (College/Pro) and that's using (by your theory) better equipment. So it really didn't seem to make much of a difference.

    CTE at high school level

    Ok say they get new equipment CTE may be mitigated but it's never going to be a non factor. So you're basically saying you have an acceptable level of CTE. And since you have a sliding scale it will essentially never be satisfied no matter the measures teams take for player safety.

    There isn't a single helmet on the planet that prevents concussions......
  13. Exactly! Unless the NFL has some sort of secret formula to not have the law of physics work against its players brains ain't much good some equipment is gonna do. Not to mention the cost would be unobtainably expensive.
