"Non-sport sports coverage"? "Novelty sport"? What do these terms even mean? I'll tell you-- it means that roller derby and its athletes have a hard time getting respect from the media and this article is a great example of that.
Mr. Maldonado, no women that I know want to be called b*tches. I do not believe that someone who calls them self a professional journalist should use that term in an article either. Then again, a professional journalist would have actually researched their subject before writing about it.
Bottom line, to say that I'm insulted by this “article” or “feature story”, whatever you wanna call it is an understatement. (Look, I can use quotations, too!) An opinion piece might be the more appropriate term. As a roller derby athlete, I can tell you that we work our butts off, both on the track and off, to make our leagues successful.
