Yes, I strongly doubt it's going away, though it may wane somewhat in popularity. Football's been thru bad times before. Hard to believe it'd suffer horribly for long compared to skateboarding, bicycling, or psychedelics.

Remember the X-Games were supposed to take over the world and hardly anyone pays attention to those sports. Football is going no where.

If these youth and high school coaches were held a little more accountable when they give their team equipment out too, a good portion of this would go away, IMO...along with teaching proper techniques.

Athletic trainers are working at high schools in our area and are now fitting most kids. The youth programs you still have kids picking out their favorite facemask pattern, regardless of how the helmet matches up on the kid and coaches are letting it slide or are too busy to follow thru with correct fittings. That stuff was going on even when I was a kid playing in the early 80s.
