There is nothing "behind the scenes" about this article. It's not even well researched. Charles, have you ever been to a bout? Have you ever talked to a derby girl?
I'm a recruit with Memphis Roller Derby. I joined a few months ago because I wanted to try something different, to get in shape, and to make friends with some amazing women.
Derby is not a bloodbath. Yes, women can get hurt, but the coaches and players are respectful and try their best not to get anyone sent to the hospital. Derby is a legitimate sport with rules and national affiliation.
Would you write the same type of article about a "violent" men's sport like rugby? Or are you just threatened by the fact that derby girls are women who refuse to keep quiet and be good little girls?
