Has anyone noticed less helmets off?


Remember beginning of year all the whining about new helmet rule and amount it was called? It seems now it doesn't happen at all in a game.

It doesn't happen nearly as often.

I've said from the beginning it's a great rule because 95% of the helmets flying off were due them not being tight enough and now they have them tight enough.

Definitely a great rule. Players don't want to take the chance of having to sit out a play.

now we just need the NFL to adopt the policy. hard for your helmet to protect you when its not on correctly. great rule, worked perfectly.

Pretty sure they modified the chin straps. The rule stops players from taking their helmets off voluntarily, sure. But the new equipment makes it harder to knock a player's helmet off.

Wrong they haven't changed straps in years. It's guys putting air in the hats now. We never had that trouble when I was at school but we always changed bladders valves and vasolined them every week same night we redid stickers.

Funny that people that said this months ago were called unAmerican bitches. Obviously a good rule.
