Again, thank you annawrecksya.
Let me take the time to note something that doesn't translate well online: this feature was intended as a photo essay, which is how it appeared in print.
On our website, clearly, the words seem to be the focus. This isn't the case, and I'm afraid this was our best option for presenting the content on metropulse.com.
Perhaps its shifted emphasis online has made it seem to carry more weight than it was intended to.
May I also point out something that truly seems to contradict what you're saying about violence? The names attached to these comments often call on very violent imagery:
I believe you when you say you don't intend roller derby to be a violent sport, but the face that's put on the game with these names truly is one of violence.
Now, this is an *interesting* contradiction, and one that likely would have gotten more emphasis had Charles been asked to write a feature story. Perhaps knowing that he was asked to write content to accompany a photo essay will help provide more insight into the coverage you see above.
