I will definitely concede this point. We don't as a group have enough long term study data to ensure that we won't see a big jump in Bantam concussions based on this decision. Whether this study is accurate or has enough sample size remains to be seen.
I hope it not the case and this decision allows for kids to grow and develop their skills up to the age of 13, then be well prepared for bodychecking at that time.
