Dementia and Football

BBC 1
An excellent documentary by Alan Shearer on dementia in footballers caused by heading the ball.
Heading the ball is now proved to case brain damage .

Re: Dementia and Football

I heard about this a little while ago, and I am not really surprised.

What about Boxers too, I wonder?

Re: Dementia and Football

Does anyone remember those rock hard heavy footballs, and when you weren't involved in the game in the playground, so your eye was not on the ball, so to speak, you copped an unexpected shot, in the Nape of the Neck, now, that hurt.
