Let me add my take here before I let you read it for yourself. So apparently, a parent suffered a concussion while at a school, after being hit in the head by a soccer ball. The school’s administration
reacted over reacted by banning all soccer balls from said school. Yes, soccer balls that kids play with. Isn’t that going a bit overboard? I for one is getting tired of all these quick band aid solutions to everything lately. Instead of using this to teach the kids about playing safely, they confiscated their ball? Should parents stop attending hockey games now or should they just stop using hard rubber as pucks? I’m done. Read it all here.
