  1. Agree that more research is needed. However, would it not be best to come down on the side of caution to protect the health of the players? No one is talking about banning heading, but rather tweaking training to reduce the risk.
  2. Anyone reading this thread would think the game has never changed in a hundred years. It changes all the time... - offside - back pass rule - number of subs both named and allowed - stoppage time - points for a win - teams in each division That's just off the top of my head. I'd probably remember more had I not headed the ball so much when I was younger.
  3. Shorter fights. More protection, like head guards in amateur boxing. I don't understand why people are so against developments designed to protect players? I'm not saying heading should be abolished. I'm saying that measures designed to keep players healthy can only be a good thing.
  4. Suggesting that we either continue as we are or do away with heading is a false dilemma. There are ways to mitigate the damage caused by heading. For example, better design of the match ball or even head protection for the players. People getting angry over this is just a bit bizarre.
  5. Again, it doesn't mean that we should keep heading the ball. The ball has changed constantly throughout time, but the act of heading a ball (even those used today) over and over again is not good for the brain.
  6. *Waits for people to talk about how it was different back in the day when the ball weighed a ton* Just because something happened in the past, it doesn't mean we should keep on doing it in the future.
