Ok. Maybe the penny hasn’t dropped yet because this is the first time head protection has been mentioned. Seems like a sensible solution, although players will have to learn to hard the ball again as I suspect that it’ll need a new technique.
Yes that was what I was thinking too. Just too Sunday-lazy to post!! Something like what Peter Cech wore? Sure someone could design something. Same for all so no advantage plus freedom of choice to wear or not? Or protect for training but not games?Head protection is the solution. Not sure how long it will take for the penny to drop.
If someone wants to get their head punched in on the name of sport, that’s their choice, let them crack on. Football is different as it’s a team sport and choosing not to head the ball effects the whole team.Seriously, heading is part and parcel to the game of football.
Why don’t the authorities, do something useful, by banning boxing. Because that so called sport, is dangerous to every participant. Almost every boxer, has had serious brain issues and dementia, because of this.
Nothing short of thuggery.
