Sorry if this has already been said but will banning heading in youth football lead to worse technique of heading in adults?

Maybe not ban it, but how about header drills with foam balls?

Completely pointless. May as well use balloons

If they try to ban heading in football then yes, it's very relevant.

To whom do you refer when you say "they"?  Unless we are talking about changes to the criminal law, isn't this a decision for individual governing bodies?

The thing with boxing etc is, of course, the whole point of the sport is to rattle your opponent's brain in their skull.  I'm not sure whether you can do much else to make it 'safer'.  If you participate, you do so in knowledge of the risks/consequences.

Football is a bit different in that there are things that could be done to make it safer (assuming it is not safe).  This may lead to changes at certain levels of the game but it is an important debate.

As said earlier, the game does not stand still and will continue to evolve.

Compounded head trauma. It's not rocket science. Yet I know nothing, as many here like to point out.

Yes, I'm a neurologist now Doh

The Alzheimers Society have quite a good summary of the state of the discussion so far with, importantly, links to the relevant research that has been conducted to date

Because I didn't think you made the distinction between training and playing, at least in kids' football which is where I'd see there is a concern. Apologies if you did, but it wasn't clear to me that you had.

Don't worry, only yanking your chain Cheesy
