By now, most people know the NFL has made helmets the mainstay of its helmets since the 1980s.
Now, it has the potential to take a more radical approach.
According to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the league is working on a plan to upgrade helmets and make them more durable.
That plan is part of an overhaul of the league’s helmet manufacturing process, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The plan includes:Using a process known as mass production, which takes only a small amount of materials, the NFL is going to invest more money in manufacturing its replacement helmets than it did in the past, Goodell said.
The NFL is working to replace footballs that have been damaged in collisions with a manufacturing process called “micro-fabrication,” which is used to create a very thin, lightweight material that allows for a lot of the material to be cut and reshaped during the manufacturing process.
“We’ve got to be smarter about what we’re doing,” Goodell said in the statement.
“This will be the first time we’ve had a process like micro-fabrics where we can take the components that have already been designed and make a new material that can be very durable and hold up to the wear and tear that you’ve seen in the game over the last 30 years.
The goal is to make helmets that are much more durable and last a lot longer.
The league plans to use the micro-fibers that the NFL’s new “super fibers” are made of to make the replacement helmets.
Goodell added that the league would also be looking to increase the number of replacement footballs in the league and invest more in research and development of the new material.”
Our hope is to have these new materials in our league by 2020,” Goodell added.”
As we get closer to that date, I think we’ll be able to look at the material, we’ll see how it holds up to our players, and then we’ll go from there.
“The NFL’s current “super fiber” material was used to make footballs before the league changed its helmet manufacturing processes in 2010.
That changed the way the league made footballs because it allowed for more uniformity in how the materials were used.
But now, with microfibre technology, the new materials are more uniform and durable.
The NFL says it’s looking to move from using the older “super” fibers to “super micro” fibers, which it says are more stable and will last longer.
