In searching the Internet for NFL stories that may interest you early on a Saturday morning, we found one about concussions that, frankly, makes us feel like we’ve had a concussion.
According to the Associated Press, current helmet technology cannot prevent concussions.
As if all the concussions in football suffered by guys wearing helmets based on current technology weren’t enough proof of that reality.
But, still, the AP conducted a “series of interviews” aimed at proving the obvious. It’s not a bad primer for someone who just emerged from a 20-year slumber or who just discovered football. For folks who have been paying attention to the sport, it’s the equivalent of assembling a panel of physicists and other folks with advanced degrees in science to identify for the rest of us the color of the sky.
