Is this real? It "looks" weird and very clumsy. If it helps, good, but, I don't see too many wanting to use it.

It reminds me of the MLB pitcher from a few years ago (Padres, I think) that wore a different, padded type of hat to protect his head while pitching. He was the only one that I ever saw wearing it, although there may have been/are others? Looked weird, but not nearly as weird as the football one.

Yes they are real. They started using them in camp recently... mandatory for some players and optional for the rest.

Is that only official now? I thought they mentioned this trade during the draft.

In January, Andrew Marchand (then of the New York Post) reported that the NFL and ESPN were in “advanced talks” that could result in the NFL taking an equity stake in ESPN, and that would give ESPN control of NFL Media.

Nearly four months later, there’s a growing belief in industry circles that a deal is coming, as soon as next week.

As one industry insider put it, the agreement is “all but signed.”

That would help explain the NFL’s recent slash-and-burn approach to NFL Network. If ESPN is going to be taking over, why should the NFL renew contracts?

This just plain stinks.

BTW, is Good Morning Football dead? Feels like it's been off air forever.

Watching the UFL and the DC kicker played a game for AZ in 2018 and was 3 for 3 on extra points. He's 11 for 12 this year with two 58 yards fgs. I'd bring him in to compete with Prater. His only miss was from 56.

kind of superficial if you ask me. these guys put their brains on the line every play. I would kind of compare it to the NHL visor. it makes too much sense to protect their heads at all costs. for the old hats, maybe just need to figure out how to put a logo on the padded version to make it look more appealing for the fans that aren't the ones crashing their brains.
