Does rugby pose a risk for those lacking strong cognitive functions?
Scientific Study says Rugby poses minimal risk for those whose cognitive functions already don’t work that well. To the reassurance of those who aspire to play Rugby or already do, top scientific expert, John Smith, has recently released a scientific study, claiming that the act of playing Rugby presents no real threat to people whose brains already don’t function too well:
“Full-contact rugby has deterred people due to its reputation as a very physical and dangerous sport, which could cause life threatening injuries, but let’s face it: some of these players are proper lads, so why take away their fun in life? What do they have to lose?” Said University of Leeds Beckett science expert John Smith, whose astute research led to his argument that the risk of long term brain damage, caused by soul-destroying head injuries, is alleviated in most cases if the affected persons have already showed signs of having minimal cognitive abilities or reasoning skills. “concussions and long term brain damage are the fundamental dangers when it comes to playing rugby. But does it really matter? The symptoms of the aforementioned – memory loss, loss of balance, and mood swings – will already occur when you’re fully drunk at a rugby social event or, quite plainly, a halfwit.
John Smith also stated that the same conclusion applies for those whom play Field Hockey.
