I have been a part of the Hard Knox Roller Girls from the beginning. We all have put so much into promoting Roller Derby as legitimate sport. We're not paid to play. We do every bit of leg work ourselves. We don't choreograph our bouts like WWE. We're average women, with average lives, average jobs, and a love for a sport that so many people do not even give a chance. We're mothers, lawyers, nurses, cops, business owners, mechanical engineers, and more. We play to have fun, not to maim an opposing player. There is no severed hands, no gouged-out eye balls, and no fighting. There are rules and regulations to keep everyone as safe as possible. Yes, there are risks to playing such a high impact sport. The same risks football players or rugby players take.
Hard Knox was just accepted into the WFTDA, a national organization that promotes and fosters the sport of women’s flat track derby by facilitating the development of athletic ability, sportswomanship, and goodwill. If you had even looked up their website, you would have maybe gotten a few things to talk about instead of pulling BS out of your BUM. You could have come to a bout, interviewed some of the Hard Knox Roller Girls, then you MIGHT be able to call this a "Behind the Scenes" article. You probably don't even know any of their names, how many bouts there are scheduled for this year, who they are playing next, who they've played in the past.... you know, the informative things that would make this article worth a damn. I'm not a writer and never will I claim to have perfect grammer or know how to spell everything, but I could have at least put the 2-3 hours of research in that could have made a huge difference.
