Good news buffy .... rugby miles ahead in that respect for a few years now

A head knock should be treated and assessed immediately

Or tie a bandage round it and play on ??

Hope you are well

I’m fine grandpa 😉 hope you are too x

I agree with the instant treatment of concussed players (can’t imagine clubs not having this already) and not being allowed back on; however, imo, the football governing bodies are avoiding discussing the issue of heading the ball / going to for a challenge, in the first place. The substitute could quite easily also injure themselves in the same way and surely that just means more injured players with possible long term problems.

Other competitive sports have headgear - Boxing, cycling, ice hockey, winter sports - to avoid serious head injuries - why not football?

Under-12s have been banned from heading in training.
