Cover Up Your Keepers

Post by good4nuthin on 09/01/15, 12:08 pm

Having a daughter that has spent most of her soccer experience on the ground, and has spent as much time training on turf as on grass,  I have been overly interested in the conversation below.

Although there have been only 50 reported cancer cases since 2009 in the nation out of the hundreds of thousands, if not millions, playing on turf fields,  my 11yr old GK will be 100% covered from this point forward.

"Griffin has been on the hunt for answers since two female goalkeepers she knew were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. A nurse at the hospital remarked on the rash of soccer players -- goalkeepers in particular -- that had been coming down with cancer. Griffin was already suspicious.

"I just have a feeling it has something to do with those black dots," she said.

That was in 2009. Since then, Griffin has been on a crusade for answers. She's compiled a list of all the American soccer players who have been diagnosed with cancer.

So far, that list has grown to more than 50 soccer players, the vast majority of whom are goalkeepers. Why does their position matter? Because goalkeepers spend far more time in contact with the ground as they dive for balls and defend the goal."

So if that is really the case...what about all the football players that play on this turf all the time. Most of the time the lower legs and arms are not covered.
