Pigskin Dispatch Podcast... Pneumatics In Football Equipment
Pigskin Dispatch podcaster Darin Hayes and I discuss a Tidbit from August 2023 concerning the history of pneumatics in football equipment. Starting with canvas-covered thigh pads, pneumatics did not have much success until the 1970s, when helmet manufacturers could use reliable helmets that used air bladders. I also tell a story of some foolishness from my younger years.
