    This was published today. There is a 4 minute plus audio with Omalu.

    Adults can consent to the risks involved in any sport, Omalu says, but no child should play high impact sports.
    That's taking it too far... I mean, can play touch football, no?

    I know that even small scale taps on the head repeatedly can cause the same harm as a few high impact collisions.

    It's a tricky thing, you don't want kids living in bubble wrap either.

    I understand. Kids have unbelievable energy. Some a lot more than others. This is a very difficult topic.

    The 'Nanny State' will have us all behaving like good little Gattacans shortly. When insurance companies lobby for safety legislation, Governments wring their hands in glee over the opportunity of increased revenue owing to fines.
