I believe Rochester Univ. school of medicine is conducting  a study similar to that of Purdue. They are looking at repeated hits vs. concussion type hits.

League of Denial

Wondering if anyone else saw PBS Frontline's League of Denial program last night about concussions, brain damage (CTE), and NFL's apparent cover-up?

Or maybe some of you have looked into the book?

Very interesting indeed. Not sure I should have let my wife watch with me if I want our son to ever play the sport.

Players Just Wore This Startup's New Soft Helmets in an NFL Preseason Game

https://www.inc.com/kevin-j-ryan/nfl-players-wear-soft-vicis-helmets-in-game.html

A start-up company with new technology in helmet design.

We may see this new helmet at all levels of the game in the next 3-5 years.
I am sure that the investors will want the highest level of medical evidence before it gets below the highest levels of the game.

A simple collar might save football players, and our nation's heroes, from concussions

For your consideration...

The physiology looks fascinating and like it might work.
