    You want less concussions? Simple. dial back the equipment. It is a short term false sense of security. All it does is make an armor meat bag easier to run into another armor meat bag. For all the skill and strategy it still comes down who can hit the other the hardest with what they have on. Dial back the false protection and you will have to dial up skill and strategy. Yes short term small injuries might go up. But the long term weir and tear will go down.

    The Boston University study is scary. I’m glad I don’t have children who have played football, but I worry for my nephews.
    There have been better helmets available for decades, but coaches won’t use them. Perhaps now we can get some change.

    Perhaps this explains American anti-intellectualism.

    Colt made man equal. Why would I want to handy cap myself when 3 home invaders storm my house? Why would I want you or mommy government to dictate how I defend myself and my family? And again please define “assult rifle” and how not having a pistol grip is anyway less dangerous and therefor deemed “safe” by those who wish ban them? I truly do not get it. Historically when such things where banned it did NOTHING!
    I am comparing say rugby to football not a responsible gun owner to say a bullet proof “gun free zone” sticker.

    I say that the game should be less protection to dial up the skill and strategy . You say one side should be required to run around in jock straps while the other side can wear what ever they can take from the fans. Sure right, same argument.

    Harley, I wonder how a psychologist would interpret your intense response to my “false protection” comment.

    Harley, I do agree with your first comment: it IS the “protective gear” that has INCREASED the size of players, and level of aggression in “American” football. Compare the rather minor head and other protective gear in Lacrosse, for example, where they carry WEAPONS!


    Yes there are injuries in rugby and soccer, but nothing compared to “our” version of football, it IS the “gear”.

    You know how the interpretation would go, substitution is the original magic.
    The polite thing to do is ignore that part of his message as he does not realize what he is saying most of the time.

    translation " I agree with part of what he says it jives with what I believe. But I am willing to ignore the rest because he is starting to make since and I could start changing my opinion if I started listening to his parrales, logic, and views on other stuff.

    Don’t know too much about Football, do you? There’s also the “face mask” penalty, which now covers from the face mask all the way to the collar bone.
    .
    I’m not up with college or High School sports equipment, but for the pro players, they have made it safer for most of the body. It costs the franchise major $ if the player they contracted with is either dead or paralyzed due to a preventable injury.

    Seriously, why do you live in a part of the world where that is a possibility?
    Please don’t tell me that you have children or plan to raise them in such a nasty place.

    @Harleyquinn

    Having said that, I really think you have an interesting point regarding over-armouring your sports soldiers.
    One form of rugby is played completely nude, I think in Scotland. Injuries do not seem to be a factor.

    Short term security, traded for long term pain. Most liberal are like this.
