If you want to keep selling ear protecting head gear, find a way to add concussion protection. MY suggestion is to incorporate something like the old bicycle "hairnet" helmet.

Pretty neat. I take it most of the structure is a very firm "rubber" with plastic over the ears.

Yes. This headgear will also provide a degree of concussion protection as well as preventing cauliflower ear. This would be good for our sport.

We should just remove headgear from wrestling in general. It's a waste of time and extremely uncomfortable. The beginning of cauliflower can be stopped with rest, ice/heat, and potentially draining if needed.

I wore head gear for every practice and match in high school and college.

Never thought it was uncomfortable.

 

As far as your comments on cauliflower ear.

 

1.If you begin to get it during the season,how do you rest ?

 

2.Draining has a number of potential issues,including infection.

MRSA loves openings like injection sites.

 

When I was wrestling in high school and college concussions weren't an issue.

I don't know how prevalent they are today.

 

Cauliflower ear was a big concern.

When I wrestled, we were required to wear headgear,whenever we were on the mat.

Not one person on any team I wrestled on got cauliflower ear.

That says it all for me.
