"Helmets and mouth-guards required (even if you are wearing a face cage)"

Why face caged players still need mouth-guards?

There links between wearing a mouth guard and not having concussions in addition to a helmet.

Same reason you wear one in American football even though your face is caged. Also helps to prevent teeth from coming through lips in a bad wreck or biting your tongue off.

Actually there is no proof that mouthguards help prevent concussions, and Sean walked that language back. Here's a blog post by the mouthguard company Fixcraft is partnering with: http://blog.sisuguard.com/what-do-mouth-guards-have-to-do-with-concussions

But yes they can be good for preventing dental injuries.

This.
I'm all for dental protection but definitely wanted to nip this concussion thing in the bud before it becomes the next big thing and the next NAH safety requirement...

On that note, helmets also do not prevent concussions in any way, and are really only good for localized injuries such as skull fracture.

This comment is completely irrelevant to everything.

I've see more than a few of my peers leave accidents with traumatic brain injury. It is the worst. You aren't wrong in saying that a helmet won't prevent concussions, but to imply a helmet isn't a safety device that can save your life while participating in extreme sports, is just irresponsible. Respect your dome, friends.

Ya but what if you woulda landed one on Tobi, that would have been traumatic brain injury too.

My fault. Want aware of that.
