This new helmet, made by a company called Schutt, is designed to ELIMINATE concussions. Does it work? According to doctors and people smarter than me, yes it does.
But the NFL doesn't require all players to wear it...actually, they don't WANT players wearing this helmet. No, it's not about them wanting players to get concussed, it's about one thing...MONEY.
Like I said, this helmet is made by Schutt, not Riddell, and since the NFL has a contract paying them money to require players to wear Riddell. So once again, like most health care providers, the NFL has put profits ahead of safety and well-being.
