Sure are goofy looking contraptions, but if the keep someone from getting their brains scrambled, I'm all for it.

Being totally honest, I miss the gladitorial ( pardon the spelling) aspects of the game from years past, but after reading about former players, like Webby, Strellzyk ( another spelling challenge), Long, now Hinkle, I certainly understand the need for better protection.

That average $2 mil/yr salary comes with risks.   It's sports-based entertainment; the individual doesn't matter - the product does.   It's brutal, but honest.  People don't know who Mike Utley is anymore but Chuck Bednarik still gets mentioned.   
I've yet to see a highlight film released of, "The NFL's safest plays".
