rather be in hades
i've heard there was a soccer player who developed a helmet of some sort. i do think that should be used.
Thanks for your comment! Are you referring to Petr Cech? If so, that was rather different. Cech is a goalkeeper and had a nasty collision with another player resulting in a serious head injury. For this reason, he wears a protective helmet. It had nothing to do with heading.
There are pros and cons to any competitive sport. I enjoy playing soccer, and maybe only two or three times in a game are you called upon to head the ball. In fact, depending on what position you play, you can easily go the whole game without heading the ball. I don't think worrying about damaging a few cells here or there should put people off participating (which is clearly the aim of this small article), but it's obviously a personal choice.
