Maybe the padding in the helmets? I know hockey helmets have limited padding in them and its the same in baseball. The helmets in football are bigger and have more room for protection, and can use vastly superior technology for said protection. The padding in hockey and baseball is largely unchanged in the past decade.


Even in 7th grade we had those old Schutt helmets that was an inflatable blue tube surrounded by foam padding.

The helmets my brother used in his senior year are so high tech and vastly improved, the air pumps actually work and they fit so much more comfortably.

The warning sticker is still the same though, anyone who has had a helmet knows which one I'm talking about.

I expect helmets will keep improving.

I know that exact feeling Phire. I hated that helmet so much. Then I got a DNA helmet then a revolution. The DNA was probably the best protection wise.

We had Schutts or the slightly better Riddells. They both fit like crap and did NOTHING to prevent concussions.

Then the Revo became popular, slightly more stylish and comfortable. More padding, but honestly, I'm not sure any helmet can really do anything to save you from concussions.

If you think about it, our skull is our brain's helmet.

Probably the severity of the concussion. Smacking your head into ice or getting hit by a ball coming off of a bat at 115 mph will probably result in a more severe concussion than typically seen in the NFL.

Aside from that, MLB and NHL players generally take more time to come back from just about every kind of injury. Not because they're not as tough, but because each individual game is less important, so there's usually no pressure to come back until they're absolutely 100%. QBs play with shoulder sprains that would sideline a pitcher for a month or more.

Shaloin Monks train to strengthen their bones. One of the exercises strengthens the skull.(Side Note)

Revos have all those padding and no shock protection like DNAs and all the other advanced looking helmets(Its the blue stuff under the padding) Its supposed to be the latest in concussion prevention.

I never played with DNAs.

Anyone who has done an 'Oklahome Drill' has had a concussion participating.

I like 3 too, it was my baseball number.
But Kafka stained it.

I think I like Foles with a two digit number, 17 would have been cool, unless someone has that.

Never have had a real concussion from football, I was diagnosed with a mild one freshmann year but I've felt that it was more a safety precaution then me actually having one just because of friends I know who've since had them and had actual symptoms. I've worn the Xenith X1 every year of high school football, although I had to purchase that on my own as the school provides cheap schutts which plain suck. Seems 4 or 5 guys got concussions from the angle tackling drill every year, those are too fun though.
