If just 2% of people playing football develop dementia as a direct result of heading the ball, is that acceptable collateral damage for our entertainment?

What if the onset was exacerbated by training as a kid when they didn't know the risks?

Should we legalise smoking for 12 year olds as not all will get cancer as a result of smoking?

The press reports may concentrate on the sensational aspects, they always do... but that doesn't make the concerns unfounded.

As for modern footballs, as I said, one train of thought us that although balls are lighter, they travel faster causing a similar impact.

Nobody is saying ban heading in football... Just stop it for under 12s.

Is that really a bad thing if some health issues are addressed as a result?
Most sensible people would acknowledge that 3 times more likely to develop dementia was the headline.
Most would also realise that although only 2% died from the condition, it would still be a contributory factor even though other conditions may have actually killed them e.g. Cardiac issues, pneumonia etc.

Unfortunately you are pissing in the wind with faraway

He's trying to debate with the forum fool

If your taking solace in the forum fool your done. :byebye
He's the most attention seeking clown we have on the forum, but you know that, right? 
95%  of his posts are utter urine, that's from a recent study.

Ffs faraway. Literally read my post. It talks about medical studies
I'm not claiming to be an expert, I'm talking about medical studies into the issue.
Pretty much everyone on here knows better than you though because they research things.

 

 

 

 

 

If you'd left out the last sentence you'd have been fine.

That goes for your previous post.....................research things. :lol:

Of course you didn't Google anything. You don't read anything as you already know better than the experts.
"We don't need experts"
You are a typical Gammon.

You're anger is making you look more of a twat than usual.......................away and eat that chip on your shoulder.

Other than darts and snooker where physical differences between men and women are not a factor in ability to compete, what other sports are mixing men and women?

 

They will be soon. Everything is going to be mixed not just sport!

That's not an answer, you're being generic with no real answer, although I doubt you can come up with one. 

Socceraid had men and women playing on the same park for the first time this year. Strictly come dancing has 2 men dancing together for the first time in ice skating.

My prediction is based on what's to come in professional sport not what's already happening. We are seeing the groundwork for it right now though.

Socceraid is a charity event, I'll wager anything you like that you'll not see womens teams against mens in your lifetime. 

As has been said, physically it just won't work. 

Oh, and women won't be in the same team as men, they would get flattened, outrun, out jumped, etc etc.

F Man  is a donkey.. Only less well endowed in all ways, brain and appendages.

He hits out at others indiscriminately.

I feel rather sorry for him.

He is weak willed and hypersensitive.

You sensationalist! emoji850.pngemoji12.png

You've lost the plot.

Ignoring the other points and focusing on something I pointed out in your attempts to dramatise your view.

Keep it up, dig dig dig. :lol:

PS The forum fools on ignore so his trolling goes unnoticed until I get fed up and pop back on and laugh at him. :1eye

One of the finest sights in fitba

The flying diving heider

Seemed to have died out with Joe Jordan and Andy Gray

When we were decent at international fitba

Most weans are feart to heider a ball until they are a teenager anyway

A fuss over nothing

Derek Johnstone, I think in a Scotland game, and too many to mention from Andy Carroll. 

PS Drogba in the Champions League final, a REAL header.

Every club had a good forward who was strong in the air attacking decent crosses

Where have those forwards went?

Derek Johnstone against Wales 78 you are talking about

Aye, had to generate the power from a wee dink from wee Archie...........................see below.

PS Stay tuned till the end, get the hanky oot. :o

Well dodgy

Gave them a soft penalty where it was easier to header the ball than handle

Useless Taff missed a minute later stick it in ourselves

No one seemed bothered

Bumping up their appearance money with Wullie Hill

That'll have been because they were convinced they were going to win the World Cup. :lol:

Overall a great spell to be a Scotland supporter.

The qualifiers were full of great moments.

Medical studies show that footballers are 3 and 5 times more likely to have Alzheimers and dementia in later life.

Glad the attention seeking know alls on here know better though.

^^^^^^ if Carlsberg did irony! 😂

The SPFL could take over the running of the Scottish Women's Premier League 1 and 2, as well as the Scottish women's League Cup, under a proposal being considered by a Scottish FA review. (Times)

Another step towards introducing women into the mens game.

I'm not sure, is there a rule this now saying that women are not permitted to play in the SPFL?
