    Impossible to remove heading from the game imo, ridiculous.

    So the Shearer documentary was inconclusive, as it was always going to be given the lack of data available regarding ex-pros with dementia. It was interesting all the same though, and good to know that research is going on into the issue.

    They should ban kicking the ball as well really. Remember when Van Persie was nearly killed?
