When they do, we have EMTs standing by. We also have
insurance. If a skater goes down, we ask that you be
respectfully quiet until they are back on their feet or out
the door on a gurney.
If it looks painful, it probably is. Injuries happen.
YES - IT IS ALL REAL.
We don’t want to hurt you.
If you said those guys skate like girls, you’d be
right. Tonight’s event is played by the Women’s
Flat Track Derby Association’s rules. It only
makes sense, since the male skaters ar
referees, husbands, and fans of the women’s
leagues. Men’s Derby is still in it’s infancy, with
only a dozen teams nationwide, but it’s growing
every day. It probably goes without saying that
Women’s Derby is flourishing, but the men
would like to say that they are humbled, and
proud to share the track this evening.
No, fighting will result in expulsion. But this
doesn’t mean there aren’t going to be big hits.
There will be huge hits. Seriously, the guys
may skate like girls, but they hit like guys.
Guys with something to prove.
Let’s call the front row “Suicide Row.” Ok. Now you
may have noticed that Suicide Row is a very empty
10 feet from the action. Our guys and gals are moving
very quickly, and not necassarily in full control. By
sitting in the front or the second row (they’ve been
known to jump over the first row) you agree that we
will not be held responsible for any damage that may
occur, or any spilled beer for that matter.
Kids under 18 are not allowed in Suicide Row.
I Thought Roller Derby was a girl’s game..!
Aren’t you going to fight?
