How do we stop the mass hysteria over the NFL’s new helmet rules?
As we head into the season, let’s consider the state of the NFL helmet rule debate.
We can debate its merits or the lack thereof, but the consensus is that it is a step in the right direction, at least in terms of the number of injuries sustained by players and the number that cost the NFL millions.
As for the safety issues, we’re not sure if it’s a good idea to take out the helmets of all those injured players.
We’re also not sure that the helmet-to-helmet contact rule will deter some of the more dangerous hits and hits to the head.
The question that remains is whether it’s worth the risk.
The answer, it turns out, depends on your viewpoint.
Some, including the NFLPA, argue that the league’s helmets are dangerous, while others argue that they’re a good thing.
There’s even some disagreement about the degree to which helmets are necessary, with some arguing that they make the game safer.
But the consensus remains that the helmets have done little to reduce the number and severity of concussions.
Well, there are a couple of things.
One is that they protect players, but they also allow the hits to be more easily detected.
There are a number of factors at play here.
First, the helmets are designed to protect the head from direct impacts, which make it easier to spot hits.
Second, the helmet protects the brain from direct hits by the player, which increases the chances that a concussion will occur.
Third, the design of the helmet helps protect the skull from a high-impact helmet.
So, even if you think helmets are great, it’s important to remember that they don’t make the brain safe.
The brain is made of many different types of material and is subject to damage in various ways, such as impact from a collision, trauma, or the impact of the blows of a person.
These are the kinds of things that can increase the likelihood of a concussion.
The helmet is the last protective layer.
The second and third layers protect the brain against the head injury.
And the final layer protects the head against the direct hits.
So helmets are a great thing.
The problem comes when it comes to the fourth layer.
When helmets are used as a protection, the brain is vulnerable to damage caused by impacts that occur in the skull.
That’s where things get tricky.
It’s easy to see where this is going: The helmet protects against the high-speed hits to your head that are much more likely to occur in games.
And, because the helmet does this by blocking out the skull, it increases the likelihood that a brain injury will occur in a game.
This is not a problem that can be solved by the helmet.
The rule is not meant to protect players against all types of head trauma, and it’s not the way to do it.
The NFL’s helmet rule, though, has done something it wasn’t supposed to do: It’s put the burden of protecting the brain on the shoulders of players, who have to make the tough decision to wear a helmet.
In the words of an NFLPA spokesman, “This rule has not been designed to reduce head injuries.”
And it’s certainly not designed to decrease hits to head.
In fact, the NFL rules out helmets entirely in the following way: Players can wear the helmet if they feel like it.
But they cannot do so until after the game.
The rules are designed so that the only way for a player to prevent a head injury is to wear the appropriate helmet, which is to say, to avoid the helmet altogether.
In other words, if you feel like wearing the helmet you should.
The idea behind this is to make sure that players are aware of the risk they are taking, and to allow them to decide whether or not they want to wear helmets that protect the face or the skull or both.
In some ways, this is an excellent idea.
The head injury rate in the NFL has fallen significantly in recent years.
But it’s the number hit hardest by the rule that has caused the biggest problems.
When you consider the fact that about a quarter of the players in the league suffer concussions every year, and the average player is struck by a helmet about twice as often as a player who hits the helmet is struck, it becomes clear that the rule does little to prevent head injuries.
It is also worth noting that helmets can also be a valuable defensive asset for the players who wear them.
In a study published in 2010, researchers at the University of Virginia, the University at Buffalo, and Columbia University compared helmet-wearing performance between players who had no contact with helmets and players who did.
In both groups, players who wore a helmet experienced significantly less head injury than players who didn’t wear a headgear.
This indicates that the protective power of the helmets, in addition to protecting the player against head trauma as well, can also increase the effectiveness of headgear-protected players in protecting their brains
