In every sport, people should always put safety first, especially head safety. Head safety is very important because people could obtain brain trauma or they could possibly die. People should also be aware of the safety gear in all sports. The most common piece of sports safety gear is a helmet, which is also the most important piece of all. Helmets play an enormous role in sports; and they can save lives.
In the 2017 NFL season there was only a few players actually approve to where the zero1 helmet (Richard Sherman, Alex Smith, and Jadeveon Clowney are among the NFLers expected to wear the Zerol this season.) Other sports are redesign helmets for other sports, such as lacrosse and hockey. Tackling should not be banned because concussion , football dirty hitters should be ejected for that game. NFL dirty hitter can be sued or either sue the league if it is really bad head injury such as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).Yet the prohibited keeps happening and, it seems, to a higher degree, because the referee are not really doing their jobs ejecting players that are breaking the NFL
Some changes have been made but are not enforced. There is room for more though. The prohibition of the double layered helmet should be enforced more often. Though they sound more protective, they actually defeat the purpose of the helmet and can create vulnerability for an injury. Radios in helmets should also be banned because quarterbacks usually have them and can get blindsided (Plaschke).
The athletes beg the health care provider to allow them to return to the game when really, there is much more at stake. Most coaches just tell the kid to shrug it off and return to the game, which is totally unacceptable. The athlete may not realize that this has gone from a sudden injury to a potentially life changing one. Some may say that the health care officials have the knowledge and know what 's best for the greater good of the patient. Also, the helmets have been made to absorb shock, but even so, why risk it?
Physical sports can sometimes be quite dangerous. Especially concussions, Concussion is a temporary loss of brain function typically resulting from a relatively mild injury to the brain, not necessarily associated with unconsciousness. The problem of concussions is it happens to often. I say physical sports make rules protecting you from concussion.

Concussion “Smack”! “Bam”! That 's the sound of two helmets colliding. This can result in serious head trauma and concussions. I believe that concussions are being continuously being prevented in sports like football and that the argument of concussions not being prevented well is not completely true.
Concussions are a big fear in any sport from ice hockey to cheerleading. That is why sports players should get a regular check-up for concussions. One of the main problems are that deaths are occurring from unaware parents or trainers. A young man that played in maryland died at the prime of his life because of head trauma.

Topic: Why schools should spend more money on equipment to protect athletes from concussions and other injuries. In today’s society sports rule the lives of kids of all ages. Football, being one of the most popular, is on the decline because of the recent studies of NFL players having CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) causing early death and brain/memory problems. WIth these studies parents are starting to pull their children from playing football at a young age to try and reduce the risk of head injuries in general.
Many parents, including mine, are becoming weary of their children playing soccer. This sport, just like football, is gaining this reputation because of the risk of concussions from heading the ball. Also, like football, there is equipment being developed to make this sport safer. Instead of helmets, it is headbands to reduce the impact from the ball. In Delaney’s study on the effect of headgear in soccer, he showed showed how this protective equipment in soccer does a lot to help prevent against concussions (Delaney) There were a couple different results that he found in this study showing this.

Every winter sport has a big risk of hurting your head. “Helmets reduce the incidence of any head injury by 30-50%” according to Jasper Shealy, professor emeritus at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, N.Y.
