"Personally, I think that would be a mistake," Willer said. "All you're doing is putting it [bodychecking]off and putting it off to an age where the players are bigger and stronger and have more testosterone. The injury rates will not only be higher, but I think more serious."
data says he's wrong about the frequency. Anyone can have an opinion. Backing it up with fact is a different story. Now I cannot argue the more serious/less serious as I'm not sure that's completely measureable. How do you meaasure a "mild concussion".
