It’s the Tip of the Iceberg

Did you know that 70% of NFL players don’t even wear knee or thigh pads?  It’s ridiculous.  The NFL is finally mandating it but  this crap has been going on for years (18 to be exact).  Many players also wear child-size pads all in the name of speed.   How about in the name of injury?  Why has the NFL allowed this?   I have no idea.  If you shrink the shoulder pads then ALL you have left to hit with is the head! Compare Ronny Lott and Troy Polamalu and you can see the difference.  Both were the best in their game but the sport has changed and put these players in danger.
