NFL admits they can't track concussions with helmet technology

According to published reports, the National Football League has suspended a program to track concussions with the use of helmet sensors.  The sensors are ineffective in predicting concussions.

Helmets cannot prevent concussions and current technology cannot provide accurate information concerning the multiple forces being applied to the brain upon impact.  In fact, since it is the brain moving within the skull that causes brain damage, an impact need not occur for a concussion to take place.

Simply put, football is a concussion delivery system. Helmets despite all of the rhetoric on the part of the NFL do not make the sport safe.
