Lately I have been really entertaining the idea of joining a Roller Derby team! So I thought this might make for a good, non-emotional (lol) debate :D

What are your thoughts on this sport? (if you even consider it a sport) Is it too violent? Have you (or anyone you known) ever played it? Are you a fan?

I have a friend who does it. I also entertained the idea but, I didn't have insurance so, I figured that would be a dumb move on my part. I personally think it would be fun though.

I have a friend who does it too...and yes...she loves it. I don't think I'm a strong enough skater, personally, but I really should go watch her sometime :)

I never tried or watched it. I know someone who joined about a year ago and she loves it/praises it.

My oldest niece plays it. Be careful, it's a dangerous sport. She's had more broken bits than my friend from high school who became a professional wrestler.

I love the idea, I've been thinking of joining too. I'm in a Drunken Knitting Circle with a girl who is on our local team and she loves it. The sport is so popular here we've gone from 1 local team to like 5.

And who doesn't want to wear fancy roller skates and have a kick ass roller girl name?
