“Doctors have a battery of tests is needed in order to assess whether or not a player has a concussion, has”, said Gouttebarge, who, in the past, if a player was active for FC Volendam and FC Omniworld. “However, in the present drieminutenregel, there is not enough time for the doctor to put that to test in the field to work with.”

In rugby, it is tienminutenregel has been

Rugby is used as a tienminutenregel. In these sports is the game that will be temporarily frozen, if a player has a head injury and a momentary switch can be used.

“In other sports, such as rugby, it is all handled with the utmost care hersenschuddingen, but the football is running this behind,” said Gouttebarge. “It would be good for the health of football players as a football, this life. We are here since 2013.”

The BOARD welcomed the new rule. “The introduction of the tienminutenregel, it would be very good. But not as a replacement for the current drieminutenregel, but in addition to the existing line,” according to consult a specialised Edwin Goedhart. “There are a number of other situations in which you do it within three minutes, you can decide what is best for you as a player.”

The Link between headers and brain damage has not yet been demonstrated

Goedhart noted, however, that the science is still not able to hardmaken that the brain damage caused by head. “It is not yet scientifically proven. It would be possible, but it could just as easily not have been.”

“On the basis of this study, it may not lead to the conclusion that it is the heads that is the cause of the increased risk of alzheimer’s disease, in the case of ex-professional footballers,” says Goedhart. “There has been absolutely no research has been done into the possible reasons for this. It will also make it possible for people to age in the fifties, sixties, and seventies of the last century, as a football player, have been active.”
