    No way.. its interesting, a study found there was a rise in concussions when helmets were improved- at least according to Steve Levit the freakanomics guy.... but the real problem most footy players have are shoulder and knees.... the field is so big, all of them are runners. In the off season, before the game became truly professional, they were garbage men.... because running beside a garbage truck to collect bins from houses with 50 foot frontages was the best traning they could do.. i think the round took 4 hours... but could ask, my brother in law was a boxer and did it for the same reason...

    ( oh, and if u look, some players wear soft helmets but it would be like asking a marathon runner to wear one, most would rather risk a hit than heat exhaustion)
