Dear future president,

The number of concussions in the NFL is increasing. In 2015 a number of 271 concussions were reported. There is a 53% increase in concussions in the NFL and it is causing more players to retire and get diseases at young age.  We want the game to be safer and more fun so the players can enjoy it without the worry of getting injured. The Riddell has came out with different helmets to absorb the hit. The helmet is designed to disperse energy, reducing the risk of trauma By switching to the speed flex helmets we can save lives and still give all the fans what they want.
