With recent research about potential brain damage when heading the ball. The majority of this edvidence indicates that as a defender you are more than five times likely to suffer from dementia.

Will we see headguard protection or maybe heading to be ruled out in the game all together - whatever the decision there will be changes to bow down to health & safety demands.

Genuine question, has anyone been diagnosed with dementia since balls got lighter, ie anyone from the late 90's (I think) onwards?

Not answering your good question. I have found (quickly) an article regarding 1980's footballers.

The foundation is aware of more than 300 ex-footballers who were diagnosed with dementia, including the first cases from those who played in the 1980s.

Artificial pitches and ban over head height balls and the game will be more fun to play and watch.

Obviously won’t happen and not a serious suggestion for the game. But I am serious when saying it would be more exciting because it would mean faster more on the ground play.
