1. CTE is still a theory. I cite: "cause-and-effect relationship has not yet been demonstrated between CTE and [sports-related concussions] or exposure to contact sport.'
https://www.momsteam.com/alzheimers/cte ... esearchers
It supposedly leads to early on set dementia. In Australia 66% of dementia sufferers are women. The vast majority of them weren't subjected to concussion or impacts to their heads. So you're right the supposed CTE has many many causes. But I repeat: it is not yet proven.
You're backing up your claim with a site called momsteam? A parenting site? OMG
How about an official AIS government site for medical practitioners: https://www.concussioninsport.gov.au/me ... phalopathy
How about peer reviewed publications in respected medical journals, such as: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3795597/
This is only the beginning as diagnostic capabilities grow and research booms. Furthermore, CTE isnt just about early onset of demetia. It manifests as progressive deficits in cognition (memory, executive dysfunction), behavior (explosivity, aggression), mood (depression, suicidality), and motor function (parkinsonism), which correlate with the anatomic distribution of brain pathology
2. The hospitalisation records in Australia re concussions are so close between AFL, RL & RU as to be insignificant per head of participant.
provide some evidence then.
3. Yep. All contact sports will have to adjust. But to think your mess of a sport will be less effected is typical of you're base level partison idocy!!!
AFL continues to address head contact with rule changes, most of which are welcomed by their fan base. The sport also targets athleticism and fast ball movement as key features. The NRL has seen massive resistance to this year's rule changes protecting head high contact. The game is routinely promoted as high collision battle.
4. Grow up!!!!!!!
you seem personally offended by discussion and debate
Good on ya pal. Ya never change lolololololol!!! You do seem to have this black and white view of these two sports. Fumbling in your view can do no wrong. RL in your view can do no right.
This is exactly what is wrong with your mess. Yep, compliant fools like you. It is how rampant racism exists within it. How coaches can say they won't recruit indigenous kids unless one of their parents are white. Others will only recruit snotty nosed private schoolboy boyos. What a game.
The hierarchy will cover up sexual harassment charges and boast about paying people off to do so. They'll have MOU's with the coppers to hide the ugly festering underbelly of the mess. And you will say nothing. In fact you will clap and cheer your dear leaders!!!!!
And it goes on and on and on. Non questioning naïve dills like you just nod in unison and pat each other on the back about the great god fumble!!!
You my friend are a lost cause. You are incapable of breaking free from the bubble.
But at the issue at hand: lets just say RL is doomed. It will cease to be very very soon. Fumbling will march triumphantly through the land - the pristine sport of the un-questioning,the head nodding fools of the south.
There ya go pal!!! Happy now!!!!
What a dill!!!!!
