Where are these people that think wearing a helmet make them invulnerable to any form of injury? The helmet detractors make much reference to them, yet seem unable to introduce us to a single one.

....anyway, my son is fine after his "off".

The reality is, you will never find a happy medium regarding the yey/ney aspects of this.

I ask you one thing. If I was dribbling and had a hammer, and offered you a helmet shell thick piece of polystyrene to cushion the (non-life-threatening) blow I was just about to administer, would you use it or not?
