Actually there have been studies and theories based upon worse collisions without pads and helmets than with pads and helmets. The theory is that pads make collisions harder and more violent because you feel more protected. Your not going to launch yourself at a defender if you lead with an uncovered head. That is unless Farney tells you to!
