Your thought's on this?

This is a pretty big change to Scottish football and hopefully prevent footballers from getting dementia later on in life.

FFS, here we are slating Cammy Kerr not knowing that he is a visionary, not heading the fecking ball last Friday Night against Ayr, he saw this coming. Is he the new Messiah 😂

Given the serious consequences suggested in the very recent medical study, conducted in Scotland, there seems a lot of sense in this proposal from the SFA. If it goes ahead, we should remember it's precautionary....proposed as a temporary ban, until more is known.

I read a daft suggestion in one of the Sunday papers today about introducing a rule that the ball shouldn't be allowed over head-height. All that needs to be done is to treat heading in the same way as handball....and I'd imagine at under-12 level, there's not too much heading in the game anyway?  

It's quite a thought, though, to coach the instinctive cross/header skills out of the game.

 

ps....We maybe should push for this to be introduced by the SPFL asap.....from what I've seen, it might significantly reduce our goals against, while having almost no reduction in our goals for. 😉
