Web Search powered by Yahoo! SEARCH
Has the author ever done a Web search for "ice hockey injuries" or "football injuries?" I guess the author is disgusted with those sports too. I've watched at least thirty roller derby bouts in person in the last three years. I've seen one punch thrown. On any given Autumn weekend, I see more more punches thrown watching college and professional football.
This article is shallow. I suspect the only research done was "Web searching." It is an insult to the mothers, teachers, bar tenders, lawyers, and students who pour their hearts and souls into roller derby. I am from Memphis. As a fan, I have traveled with our team to Knoxville several times to watch us compete against the Hard Knox Rollergirls. I'm embarrassed for Hard Knox. These ladies, which I have personally met, deserve better than this. It appears that the author has never personally met any of them. Next time try getting an interview, you writer, pencil-pusher, whatever-you-want-to-be-called.
