this article is more evidence that people do not learn about a topic before they go ranting about it. and for roller derby it seems to be a common theme. (see the passage for roller derby at ehow.com, ridiculous!)but i digress. i have been skating for little rock for a year and it is the BEST thing i have ever done in my life. sports and athletics have always left a bad taste in my mouth due to piss poor attidudes and hypocritical coaches. for many years i wrote off sports and exercise all together. but when i joined the roller derby team all that changed. i have never been more healthy, nor more confident in my life and roller derby allowed me to become this person. what people don't realize is roller derby is a sport for everyone. it is engaging, fun to watch, tactical, aggressive, and afterward everyone goes to the bar for a pint and some camaraderie.i have skated with the knoxville girls and am rather irritated that the author of this article had the balls to pick on them. they work hard, use the space that they have available, and their fans LOVE them. if metropulse wants to show its literary legitamacy i suggest writing a REAL article about roller derby, getting some REAL interviews with players, refs, and coaches, and maybe going to a bout. in other words, actually doing some journalism research.
