You really don't like the sport if you think that. Just a troll stirring the hornets. Would change the game too much and with soccer politics, would never be accepted.Ha - you're trying to understate dangers of your favorite sport. Soccer can remove headers, but something like afl will always be a heavy contact sport
You can remove it in kids sport. Plus do studies to see if heading the modern ball does affect CTE plus further ways to limit it in the future. But we are talking about a sport that doesn't even have a concussion rule sub atm. Sluggish doesn't even cover the response by FIFA for our updated knowledge of concussion.
I have no doubt that CTE was a factor in the 1960s with balls that weighed twice as much as the current generation. There are too many sick players from the 60's and 70's. I hoping that the current balls have a much healthier effect on players long term well-being
