    Please, does anyone know why the QB on each team is the only one with a green circle/dot on the back of his helmet? thxs a lot

    no one noticed it but, my 11 year old nephew and he keeps asking me and making me feel dumber then dumb :( he has problems , he reads books during football/baseball games :)

    Signals he has radio equipment in his helmet. Not sure why this is titled osu players.

    I've wondered the same thing, my only guess is to indicate that is the helmet with the headset in it but again, that's only a wild guess.

    hey Bucknutty, where's the Animal gif?

    that thing got me watching The Muppet Show on youtube for hours one day when i had a hangover...

    but umm... yeah. the green dot signals that the helmet is wired.

    as far as the whole Bill Belichick stealing signals thing goes, why don't they just wire the MLB or whoever on D? then they wouldn't have to worry about it...

    Debate over whether a MLB or S needs the headset... or so the NFL talking heads said.

    thxs a lot. Had no clue on that. Belichick lol

    I thought maybe they did it to make the QB easier to spot by the refs as there are special rules on roughing the QB... The wired helmat makes more sense. I now expect to hear about a run on sticky green dots at Staples.

    It's to show who has the wireless helmet for playcalling.

    One per team (offense).

    I believe the helmets w/ the wireless headsets get a green dot.

    Sorry for the delay. I think the green dots might note which helmet has the headset. Not sure, though.

    The green dots are for non-felons. It's a select group.

    :biggrin: thxs

    titled it osu players because, of NFL players from OSU for no reason since, only Troy Smith would count.

    Is this the green dot? :biggrin:

    So, just look at the X in the middle, and you should see a green dot being replaced by the disappearing purple dots.

    Its called an: negative retinal afterimage
