I'm no fan of Ogump, but this is much ado about nothing. Teddy Roosevelt was a man's man, and he forced football to make changes in the name of player safety.


I want to know what Ernest Hemingway had to say about football before I form my opinion.

If they would lose the helmet the game would be much safer.



probably not

more players would die on the football field from skull fractures - and it seems likely that athletes in sports like rugby and hockey will increasingly be recognized as having CTE as well

Rugby players don't use helmets. They have fewer issues with head trauma.

That's probably wrong - concussions have just not been appreciated as a problem in rugby because the culture of the sport discourages it.
