farker99: You can't take something moving at 10-15 MPH and bring it to a stop suddenly without impact to the brain inside the skull.

Worse- you take something moving at 6m/s in one direction, and change its velocity to 6m/s in the opposite direction and  then a sudden stop when it hits the turf.

farker99: bad sports, in my opinion.

The only thing bad is that people try and downplay the cognitive effects. The "rub some dirt on your brain damage" approach clouds the issue and prevents people from making informed decisions about what they do with their bodies. "Look, you have a very high probability of being turned into a drooling idiot. Which is why we're going to give you millions of dollars."

Popular Science did a great, detailed article on better helmet designs, and how NOBODY will manufacture them, because they are making good money using the safety standards they've rigged for years, and the upgrade to new technology would expose the manufacturers to lawsuits, as well as obsolrting their entire product lines overnight.

So, enjoy your full body paralysis, accident victims, but know that the shareholders for those companies are doing farking GREAT.
