Seems as though those countries would be smart enough to have schools and other teams have parents sign a waiver. That is what happens in the States, parents sign a waver saying if the kids get hurt they will take responsibility.
Huh? Where was this report? Doesn't make sense (ok I didn't expect it to). Surely it's more dangerous i.e. more likely to attract legal action to insist that children play footie without the proper clothing including footwear???
We might not ever win the World Cup again but we should do well at ice skating!
