22.30 tonight with weetabix heed. Should be interesting and might be why we have done away with proper wingers and traditional big number 9s

Dementia from a healthy life?
Lungs rotten from the pit.......asbestosis from the yards.....


I know which was the better odds and life.
 
Over the next 20 years you are going to see more and more research on head injuries in sport.

Football might just be able to escape major change, but Rugby will be subject to huge reform.

To be fair to the rugby authorities they have our steps in place regarding concussion etc to protect players. Most kids wear skull caps when playing now too.

Footballers get a dose of the smelling salts, a bandage on the head and go back out heading the ball again.

There was talk of banning kids under a certain age heading the ball. It wouldn’t surprise me if at some point that heading is stopped throughout football, though I think that will be the distant future.

Sadly an affliction experienced by many a poster.
You sad, sad cunt. Previously you've been banned for taking the piss out of thalidomide victims. Now it's people with dementia.

Sitting there on the other side of the world, posting endless boring fucking insult after another, to people you will never meet (because you wouldn't have the guts to say any of that to their face), while they are asleep.

Fuck knows what happened in your life to make you such a sad, bitter, hateful piece of shit.

I've got to go - I need to check my Mam and Dad are ok. There's probably less than a 50% chance that my Mam will recognise me, but my Dad is struggling a bit to care for her lately, since her dementia got worse, what with the tempers, the incontinence, forgetting who he is, even though they've been married 50 years, throwing things, trying to leave the house to 'go home', etc.

But as you seem to be so self-hating that you spend your days trying to get people on the internet to notice you enough to insult you, congratulations, you got a bite.

You sad fucking wanker.

Shouldn't be taking this long to come up, I remember Colin Hendry discussing this just after Euro '96; so more than 20 years ago.

Reckoned you lost 50 brain cells per header iirc.

Seems he's copped a ban for it, mate, so at least we won't have to listen to his spiteful bilge for a while.

I've had a go at him as well and my comment was deleted by the mods.

Fucking incredible

Ah well that's something I suppose. Still don't understand why comments to him are deleted??

I'm guessing cos your response will include his comments as you'll have quoted him.

It's a serious issue over here in the NFL. Aaron Hernandez, most notably, had massive CTE that -- combined with the drugs he was taking -- likely caused him to go off the deep end as he did. So it's not just dementia to be concerned with.

I know the ball has become far lighter and less waterlogged than the old leather ones from decades ago, so I do wonder whether modern football will show the same injuries.

Well said. Currently experiencing a similar situation, and seeing that smug wankers name pop up in a thread about the topic didn't fill me with hope for an understanding compassionate post.

Wish they'd make it permanent. He's a poisonous old idiot, constantly sniping.
Watch what you’re saying as he has a tendency to run like a little fucking lass to the mods while banned trying to report others and get them banned as well. Wonder what he’s up to now. I can imagine. Just hope it doesn’t involve marsupials ;)

Suppose he had to get his kicks from somewhere. :lol:
