Head injuries have also been the topic of conversation in the NHL as well. Since superstar Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins suffered multiple concussions and put him out for almost a year, it has been talked about more. They have to treat these injuries with more care and attention.

Football is a tough situation because when you are young, you do not care about the repercussions of your actions. That could go for football or any other life decision. It is not until we are older that we feel the results and look back wishing we had gone about things differently. All we can do is try as hard as we can to educate the youth and increase our knowledge and medicine. Great post!

I clicked on the “Notify me when new comments are added” box and now every time a comment is added I keep getting lots of emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can delete me from that service? Thanks!

I’m not sure a new helmet design will be adequate to absorb enough energy. However, might it be possible to adapt air-bag technology to the purpose on a smaller scale? It would require a modular unit small enough to fit into the hand, which would contain the air-bag, compressed gas cartridge, a short-ranged motion sensor, processing circuit and a battery. Four of these modules could be attached to the sides of the helmet, then each will deploy when a sharp impact is imminent. A quick module switch is then all that would be required to get the player back in the game.

Key factors are ruggedness, reliability, suitable miniaturization and low cost. Hopefully, economies of scale would take care of the last, and the other three are reasonable engineering factors.

As someone who played the game for close to twenty years, I still feel lucky to have survived without serious injury. However, with every year that passes and every new headache, I sometimes wonder if I were so lucky.

i played in the eighties and nineties and never had a second thought about going back in after having my bell rung. I too had to block much like Jerry explains.

I really enjoyed reading your post. Thanks for the great information!
