So, 12 years old or older now no longer have a risk of getting dementia from playing football? This is asinine.

This is asinine.

But they have done, SOMETHING.

And this is as versus American "football" and/or "soccer".

I think that it's a good change although a slightly weird one. Watching a football match where people aren't allowed to head the ball is going to be slightly weird especially during corner kicks but I guess it's good. There's no reason to risk increasing the chance of getting dementia.

There is a whole debate with a lot of people angry over the "war on masculinity". In fact, there was one book in the bookstore claiming American football head injury negatives came from a minority of doctors.
