No don't need a study to tell me the obvious, you asked if I needed a study on injuries in lacrosse and football. It would certainly help me make an informed decision if I knew the frequency and severity and what medical experts were saying! Knowing the facts always helps. But my kids don't play the sport so I don't advocate for or against it.
But there's a difference between qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis. When you see the numbers from quantitative analysis in the hockey studies its mind boggling that people still want hitting in PeeWee. Any idiot knows hitting causes injuries - its the frequency and severity of post concussion symptoms that made me say its not a bad thing to ban it in hockey.
