Thread: new helmet technology

  1. #1

    Default new helmet technology

    I really believe this is the future if football is going to continue to exist in anything like its current form. Obviously, costs have got to come down.

    I hope we build a statue to Chad Lunsford one day and he elbow drops us to victory after glorious victory!!!!

    Interesting, thanks for posting. I've always felt that reducing the weight of a helmet extremely important as well. I wonder how this system compares?

    After all, they (the NCAA) are there strictly for the benefit of the student-athlete, right?

    This sounds like the helmet equivalent of the SAFE barriers used in NASCAR.

    Really cool article though.

    They just need to stop hitting each other in the damn head. Practice without helmets. Teach the linemen to do their job without headbutting like rams all the time.
