That spot (and I think they cut it back a bit last night) has aired in several NFL games this past season.

Great to see that the NFL is taking seriously ways to make the game safer.

There is a New Yorker magazine article on football safety in the last month or so, I don't have it at my fingertips.
The tackling dummy/robot is mentioned. My recollection from the article is that it is not quite everything it has been cracked up to be, but obviously an effort to enhance safety in a useful way.

I think one discouraging possibility is that because this device is not a perfect solution, some people will tend to discount it, which would be unfortunate if it nevertheless contributes a partial solution.

Never let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

The MVP is getting a very strong initial reception. The first run of units this fall was completely sold out, mostly to NFL teams. The device just won first place at the NFL's "1st and Future" Technology Competition in Houston this past weekend. Still much work to do with it, but it is off to a great start.

I find this aphorism to be invoked most often by people who don't want to listen to suggestions and comments by others.
