The football one you linked to only has little quarter inch little soft foam nubs (more around the edge to try to deflect the impact a tiny bit)... because football players typically play on a relatively soft grassy field and rarely land on their tailbone. I doubt it will protect you much if you slipped out on your edge on a icy patch and slammed straight onto your tailbone. The link you had doesn't have a good photo of the tailbone... here is another link

Yikes you're definitely right! azzpad it is then
