Just like David Wright from the mets and the minor leaguers. To hell with the look, a guy with his history of concussions he needs extra padding for that noggin.

That helmet does look odd, but if it makes things safer... then I'm all up for it. Safety is first in everything, just not sports.

In this pic Ben looks like the guy from the burger king commercials with little hand syndrome.

Good Point!

This is from Bouchette's chat.

Quote:
lOSE_WEIGHT_: ED: Ben talked about looking into a better concussion helmet last season. any news? or his lawsuits have proved too distracting

Ed Bouchette: Actually, I did find out he will wear a new helmet this season. it's called the Speed by Ridell. Last year, he wore the more traditional USR4. He wore the new helmet during his two OTA practices Sept 19-20.

If it protects his melon, do we really care about how it looks?

I mean people made fun of bebe for his helmet, but the man still played the game!
