"Derby’s a combination of parody, athleticism, post-modernism, third-wave feminism, sex, violence, and a maybe put-on attitude"
How insulting. I've played this sport for over 3 years. Beginning in Memphis as part of the original founders/organizers and a skater. We built a business from scratch, with grassroots efforts and at the same time trained to be athletes to play the sport, as do all the leagues around the WORLD. It's not about feminism, sex, or violence.
It's about women & men, coming together to bring a fresh, new sport to their city, and have fun doing it. Memphis has embraced roller derby as a sport, with the positive support of city officials & local media. You've disgraced the hard working staff of Hard Knox, they deserve a sincere apology (after you study more about what you are reporting)
It's truly a shame your article is so misleading. I'm glad so many people have schooled you on the true sport of roller derby.
