National Football League and NFLPA ban the use of specific helmets for first time

National Football League and NFLPA ban the use of specific helmets for first time

The phase-out of all 10 helmets will be complete in 2019, according to NFL.com's Tom Pelissero.

The NFL and NFLPA announced that 10 different helmet models will be prohibited from being worn by players following the results of laboratory testing.

'We think that is an important move, and we think that will improve player health and safety.

Brady switched over to Ridell's Speed model for two games during the 2012 season before returning to his original helmet.

'The prohibited helmets perform poorly in laboratory testing, have been discontinued by the manufacturer, or were produced by companies no longer manufacturing football helmets, ' read the release.

The goal of this study, as it has been in previous years, is to determine which helmets best-reduced head impact by using lab conditions that simulate concussion-causing impacts that could occur in an National Football League game.

The lab test includes rotational velocity and acceleration as part of a "combined metric" in helmet evaluation.

Delhi Daredevils beat Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in IPL match
The general thumb rule of batting in the T20 format has been to double the score that you have reached in the first 10 overs. Australia's Dan Christian claimed 2-35 and New Zealand's Trent Boult 2-39 as Delhi restricted Mumbai to 194-7 from 20 overs.

Players who wore the prohibited helmets during the 2017 season will be allowed to continue to wear them in 2018 but not beyond that season.

The decision was based on the latest annual laboratory tests used to assess helmets, from best-to-worst performing.

"The goal of continuing to rank the helmets, and the objective of the joint decision to prohibit certain helmets this year, is to increase that continued movement into better-performing helmets".

The announcement comes amid a push by the sport's leaders to reduce the number of concussions suffered by players after data showed an increase last season in concussions.

In March, league owners agreed to a significant rule change regarding head contact on the field of play.

The NFL and NFLPA have been ranking helmets for safety for four years, Jeff Miller, the NFL's executive vice president of health and safety initiatives, told ESPN he's seeing players choose better-performing helmets.
