I cant see any tangible benefit to any of that.
Other than of course, its part of the sport.
I see tangible benefit to tackling in football. I don't see tangible benefit in leading with the head as a linebacker or running back.
The key skills in hockey are to promote cardio, hand eye coordination, and develop the physical skills. Teaching a kid to get violently hit to the head promotes what?
At what age in boxing do they allow the removal of head gear?
Do they allow you to put your shoulder into someone's chin in rugby?
The rest of your arguments are ridiculous.
