    Literally all your quotes have bad grammar because capital letters are things that exist in the English language.

    I made one throwaway comment, you've been the one trying to get into an argument about it.

    I think that this interpretation of my post is more evidence that none of the lessons you had in school really worked.

    Head protection will only worsen things, not help. Head protection encourages more forceful and wreckless hits and does not prevent concussion or the repeated buildup of small impacts
    Surely kids under the age of 13 aren't as reckless though? I think over the age of 13 that might be an issue but not under?

    Im not sure tbh. I know a lot of the concern with your under 13's group is the size of kids these days aswell. My understanding is that its not just solely protecting the skull so to speak, its the repeated trauma of hits that build up.

    For example if you got rear ended by a car at 25mph you likely will be ok. If it happened repeatedly you would be at risk of CTE

    There are many overweight kids. I reckon some of them could take me out (Knock me out, not on a date).
