Raiders’ WR Antonio Brown is scheduled to see a foot specialist today

Recommended Posts

The helmet that Brown wants is on the banned list because it doesnt meet the safety standards of the NFL, correct? Assuming that's correct, arent they doing the right thing by denying him the ability to use a helmet not deemed safe enough to use in games?

No, because his helmet wasn’t technically on the “banned list” since it didn’t get tested until just recently. Once the other players’ helmets got on the banned list, they got a year grace period. That’s what Brown wants. 

But yeah, all the NFL would have to do is say that the players were given until 2019 to use one of the approved helmets (worded specifically that way, opposed to not using one of the banned helmets) and then Brown loses his argument.

Fair but he knew that he could not wear his current helmet because of the 10 year rule.  His first argument should have been to get the newer helmet certified but he was not ready for that.  The Manufacturer of his helmet said it was not made anymore because it was less safe than current models and that was in 2013.

You’re right, he knew the rules that were coming unless he just ignorantly assumed they wouldn’t apply to him (very possible tbh).
