Not to mention the fact that they had injuries where they broke their noses, etc..

    Again, I posted actual research which when into it. You're using an opinion as your argument.

    From my article, which was ACTUAL RESEARCH:

    When it comes to concussions, for 8-13 year old kids, there was a 0.067% chance of a kid getting a concussion.

    When it comes to serious injuries, for 8-13 year old kids, there was a 0.14% chance of a serious injury.

    Injuries in general, for 8-13 year old kids, was 0.26%.

    The risk of actual injury for both tackle and flag football is a whopping 0.27%.

    Again, this is not a small sample size. This is a sample size of 44,164 kids who played tackle football. Flag football pretty much doubles the injury rate though. Something which is still negligible.


    As I said, kids at their ages (the ones posted in the twitter link) are not even remotely close to being able to hit hard enough to inflict actual damage. Basic physics and biology.

    Please go through this article:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5305025/
    I'm sorry, I missed this... I'm not citing opinion. I'm citing experts who both discovered CTE and specialize in studying CTE and other brain injuries.

    "Based on everything we know about CTE, Flag Football Under 14 makes overwhelming scientific sense," said Lee Goldstein, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor at Boston University School of Medicine and College of Engineering and principal investigator for the Brain study, in the release. "We will never prevent CTE by focusing on concussions. Any meaningful prevention campaign has to focus on preventing all hits to the head, including subconcussive impacts."
    I'm not sure if you read my post, but I specifically noted that subconcussive hits were the real concern, not simply concussions.

    [QUOTE]A Boston University study released Thursday provided scientific evidence that repeated hits to the head, even those that do not produce concussion or concussion-like symptoms, can lead to the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

    [B]"We've had an inkling that subconcussive hits

    So while the research you mentioned dwells on concussions and observable injuries, the research has moved beyond that. Also, I'm glad your nephews are doing well, but signs and symptoms of brain degeneration don't generally and necessarily present in young people in their late teens and early twenties. The concern isn't that kids are going to struggle early in life because they played football when they were kids. The concern is that while the subconcussive hits they receive when they are young don't produce any noticeable damage when they are young, those repeated hits will set them up for challenges when they are older.
    From the article you cited:

    "Researchers examined the postmortem brains of four male athletes ages 17-18..."

    Also, unless I'm completely misunderstanding your source, those brains were obtained from kids who passed away a day to four months. I wonder what their actual injuries were.

    We're talking about youth football. Not JV or Varsity football.

    "The risk of actual injury for both tackle and flag football is a whopping 0.27%."

    CTE develops over time. It requires repeated hits over time of both a concusive and subconcussive nature for brains to have and show the plaque buildup.

    "The risk of actual injury for both tackle and flag football is a whopping 0.27%."
    We don't reliably measure sub concussive hits as injuries because they don't present as injuries on the field. The damage from those sorts of hits isn't perceptible, and they add up over time.

    Again, go back and read what I posted. We're talking about 6 year olds here. Also, try going through the research that I posted.

    Except for that fact that we do.

    Read:

    "The risk of actual injury for both tackle and flag football is a whopping 0.27%."

    So, there's a 0.27% chance of ANY injury in youth football.

    Ok, so how do we measure sub-concussive hits. What scale do they use as an assessment when there is no noticeable dizziness or disorientation from a hit.

    READ. It really isn't that long.



    "Contact injuries were defined as any injury sustained due to impact with another player, regardless of whether the injury occurred while playing flag or tackle football. An injury was considered noncontact if it occurred without an external force exhibited by another player, such as those experienced during a running drill. An injury was considered severe if it resulted in a concussion, fracture, or ligament tear. All other injuries were considered nonsevere. The leagues encouraged their teams to use the International Consensus Statement Guidelines for Sport-Related Concussion."

    In short, even sprains, tears, and other possible non-contact relates injuries are considered overall.

    Including all those, the probability of a kid injuring himself was .27%.

    Among those injuries, 27%-35% of the injuries were fractures.

    Another quote:

    "...sprains, strains, and contusions, have suffered from more variability in reporting, with 9% to 69% of reported injuries being sprains, strains, and contusions."


    Supporting my initial statement:

    "Players in grades 7 and 8 have almost twice the injury risk when compared with players in grades 4, 5, and 6."

    "[I] In studies in which athlete-exposures were measured, the injury risk in older and more experienced athletes could be attributed to the more experienced players

    You're a moron. There's nothing scientific about cherrypicking to support your predetermined conclusion.

    So I'm going to ask you again more directly. I'm just looking for a yes or no.

    When a player gets hit during the course of a game, and gets up [COLOR="DarkRed"]without[/COLOR] showing signs of dizziness, disorientation, or any other injury, including a sprain, tear or fracture, is any injury recorded?

    This thread is about Asian women. Why are you talking about brain damage?

    Since you obviously can't or won't read, yes.

    No, I read. Maybe I missed something.

    What injury is reported when a player suffers [COLOR="DarkRed"]no[/COLOR] noticeable injury and [COLOR="DarkRed"]does not[/COLOR] suffer from any dizziness or disorientation after a hit. So a player takes a good hit on 2nd down, but pops right back up and is ready for 3rd down right away. What injury do people on the sidelines record?

    Why don't you email them and ask them?

    Here's the link to the article:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5305025/

    I PROVED my statement to be a fact. Now, you can either hold the L and move on continue with shifting the goalposts.

    And yes, asians are smarter than whites.

    However, I'm pretty sure that whites are more spatially aware, they're more athletic, and they have much higher levels of empathy.

    People in China literally run people over repeatedly after accidentally hitting them with their cars... because it's cheaper.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9h0mNzjSIk

    Asians are not smarter, they just score better on math tests because they're forced to study like 7 hours per day outside of regular school

    Asians are a close seconds behind whites though
