Silly?

That's just plain over-the-top.

Yes, those silly women, thinking they can do anything other than cooking, cleaning, and other appropiately girly activities.

You might want to look into some of your issues, Submitter.

Subby misspelled "hot"

That is about 15% of "Roller Girls". The rest are either 250 lb goth/biker chicks or look like they need to get off the meth

/maybe that is just the teams I see on the Public access channel around here

Hubby would consider a lady arm-wrestler the ultimate handjob challenge!

Step 1: create a league of people who, because of the very nature of their physiology, do not have the potential to do well in the activity around which the league is focused.

Step 2: ???

Step 3: Profit.

===============================================

Of course they can do well... they're arm wrestling other women.

/Though, I imagine that a lot of crazy chicks could beat a lot of men.

X-ARM is so bad it's good. I also love that Cal Worsham is described as an "outstanding performer" in the UFC.

A CLAW event is more performace art than a serious sport. Quite entertaining if you ever get the opportunity to check out.

This calls for the main theme awesomeness of Kenny Loggins!

You GOTTA love it when Sylvester Stallone sits down and churns out a screenplay.

Roller derby. Is. Not. Silly.

/I will crush you.

I used to be the lead referee in the 1st derby team in Dallas, and now I feel an array of shame and embarrassment. In my experience, most of the girls were desperately trying to be something they weren't. It was kinda sad, so I quit.

/No, I won't say the name of the league
/That chit is 'tarded
 
2010-02-27 08:12:13 PM  
Men's roller derby would be sillier.

I think there are derby fans with that fantasy.

My supervisor at one of my jobs used to be in roller derby, so I'm getting a kick, etc.
 
2010-02-27 09:15:48 PM  
I've gotten entangled with a few derby girls... They are more fun than average, a little more formidable than average, all of which is a good thing! But even they would say it's silly. So what? Nothing wrong with being passionate about something silly, fun, and entertaining.
 
2010-02-27 09:30:43 PM  
I dig tough chicks, not gals who are tough on the eyes.

But since my ex joined a roller derby team for exercise, I haveta say it's great about 90% of the time.

No opinion on arm wrastlin' gals, but the idea doesn't seem alluring
 
2010-02-27 10:28:57 PM  
Because the only sporting events that women should be allowed to join, requires them to be hot.

Ah her derrrrr. Any other women should just die!!

*drools*

I just watched a women's roller derby match tonight, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies...

I wasn't nearly as bruised after falling down a long set of stairs as those gals will be by now. Not for the faint of heart.

Or for those who hate seeing women hustle about in tights.

I'm a regular photographer for several roller derby leagues. These women kick serious butt. I'd start wearing a helmet when you leave the house, subby! :-)

I play roller derby. We tend to have good senses of humor, but I wouldn't say the sport is silly. Being out of shape is not an option, and after a couple of games on hard concrete, the "I just want to wear hot outfits and not work very hard" types drop out.

Also, no elbows, no fighting. The rule book is bible-sized.

/Off to four hours of practice NOW, in fact. In less than 26 minutes, because I skate fast.
//Hi, preflash.gordon! I love your photos. I'm one of the Mad Rollin' Dolls. ;-)

preflash.gordon: I'm a regular photographer for several roller derby leagues. These women kick serious butt. I'd start wearing a helmet when you leave the house, subby! :-)

No kidding. I have to go help set up and photograph a bout tonight and I can tell you even though it is just a local league bout those girls are ready to clobber each other.

Silly? Why doesn't American football qualify? It's pretty silly to run back and forth across a field tackling each other. Or wrestling? It's so silly to see two men in tight spandex squeezing each other to the ground!

Come on, all those women could kick your arse, I'm sure.
 
2010-02-28 08:52:17 PM  
Dire: I've gotten entangled with a few derby girls...

... at the same time? I've only entangled one-at-a-time.
