I know of many people who have waited for this piece, excited that after several years our own alternative news source was finally looking at our sport and doing an article. Hard Knox has worked so hard to get where the league is today, eager to join the hundreds of leagues that also work hard to make this sport recognized as a sport. We are excited every time we think someone is helping us get one step closer to the recognition and respect that roller derby and the women (and some men as volunteers) deserve.
Alas this was not the piece to do it. I'm insulted as a fan of roller derby and as a man in love with so many women and their sport.
Novelty? Non-sport sport? Mr. Maldonado, shame on you. Would you write a restaurant review without actually dining at the restaurant? Did your research only involve You Tube? Do you even care that you've done such a disservice to so many people?
I was excited to show my children the pictures of their mother and so many strong and amazing women that I'm proud they and I have the honor to know, but I won't be reading the words to them.
So thanks for the novelty of your non-journalism journalism.
