Quote of the Day
Rugby is great. The players don't wear helmets or padding; they just beat the living daylights out of each other and then go for a beer. I love that.
The only mystery in life is why the kamikaze pilots wore helmets.
I don't understand American football at all. It looks like all-in wrestling with crash helmets.
Scarily, football helmets, which do a fine job of protecting against scalp laceration and skull fracture, do little to prevent concussions and may even exacerbate them, since even as the brain is rattling around inside the skull, the head is rattling around inside the helmet.
Why does everyone think the future is space helmets, silver foil, and talking like computers, like a bad episode of Star Trek?
Now what do you get in the Army? Bad helmets and Basra. Your guns don't work and everyone hates you when you come back.

If they're lazy, we can tell.
Football helmets were first designed to protect against skull fractures, but users get more than skull fractures. We need to take a look at this to see if there is any way to improve safety. We need to set some standards, because the ones now are not protecting players to the highest level.
