Mundy said after the game that he did not intentionally lead with his helmet and felt bad that another player was injured.
[Raider coach Dennis] Allen said he did not believe there was any intent to injure on Mundy's part.
"It's the game of football," Allen said. "I don't think people are trying to go out there and hurt people. The safety was playing the game fast and physical. It's a tough game to play when you're making split-second decisions on how you play the game. It's the unfortunate things that happen in this game but we move on from it.
The NFL might want to reconsider that argument that "It's the game of football" and that they should "just move on from it" in light of the recently filed lawsuit on behalf of former NFL players. Actually, football leagues of all ages might want to take a look at the data.
If the objective is to really prevent serious head injuries, remove the helmets. The safer helmets seemingly reduce the cost of lowering your head and slamming into an opposing player. Take the helmets off and there's an obvious known cost to lowering your head to hit an opposing player. If safety is really the concern, make it more like rugby.
