    Kinda over sized looking to me.. but if it helps and the players choose it.. so be it. Kinda looks like something straight out of the movie "pluto nash"



    The NFL season is over, but Uni Watch is already thinking ahead to next season, because there may be a major new development on the helmet scene. According to the cover story in a recent issue of Machine Design magazine, the upstart Protective Sports Equipment company -- the same firm that brought us the ProCap anti-concussion accessory, which was worn by Steve Wallace and Mark Kelso back in the 1990s -- is working with the league to develop a new helmet concept, called the Gladiator.

    Those seem like they would increase facemasks to me. It's all sticking out like "GRAB ME! CMON! DO IT!"

    And yeah, it's ugly, like a friggin spaceman helmet.

    Any team that wears those doesn't have to worry about playing - because their opponent will die of laughter.

    Yikes. Those things are so ugly, we'll have to make the players wear bags over their heads like the Saints fans.

    Oh my god, those helmets defy ugliness, lol! If they decide to strap those bad boys on our players... well.. think we'll all have to go back to listening to the radio :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    You shouldn't fear change. You're married. That's all you get to keep.

    That thing looks huge!
    The players would probably topple over if they wore them.
