Discussion: SG Helmets and questions about the NFL ban-2018
I was discussing football helmets with a colleague and he told me the NFL banned the SG Helmet for future use. He said, "It didn't make the cut during the testing".
I asked him if he had read my article about how to explain what happens to a players brain to produce a concussion and he said, "No but I liked the pictures". That is my point exactly. Read up on the subject and discover the truth. The headlines often skew the data, include bias rhetoric, and/or promote a service or product by endorsing a certain opinion or brand.
This promotes popularity and name brand over quality. This is the American way. If I started a shoe brand that had the best fit, comfort, and durability this would not automatically become the go to product. It takes time to develop a product for sustainable growth and word of mouth produces the best results. The problem is with the concussion epidemic the game does not have time to waste.
My mind immediately shifted to the comic relief and constant joking we do on a daily basis. I said, "If the SG failed then the test must have been bias in some way, rigged, and/or a false media report. When I got online I was almost confused by the reports. The reports mentioned old helmet models that are to the best of my knowledge out of circulation.
