It's not about actual impact, it's about playing the role so they can point to all the steps they have taken when the day comes in court that they and other are sitting around discussing how much money they need to pay.
The NFL was all jacked over their reduction in concussions from the kickoff move by saying it cut back on "X" percentage of concussions on kickoffs but I never did see a total number avoided.
If it cuts the concussions on kickoffs from 8 to 4, cool..........doesn't really do anything if there are 200+ per season.
As for this article, this is the 3rd time it's been posted and the main source of the idea was Schiano.
