Is it a barbaric out-dated activity that should be banned, or just a sport that has acceptable risk?
All sports have risks. People know what they are getting into when they do it. I don't believe that the government should be as involved as they already are in our personal lives. If someone wants to box, they are only hurting themselves.Is it a barbaric out-dated activity that should be banned, or just a sport that has acceptable risk?
I like your style ! Roman Gladiators it is (but with untrained murderers!) - i also favor the idea of the the animals given a fighting chance - change it up a little - make it INTERESTING!Actually, we could combine this with another thread - the Death Penalty - and have a win-win situation for society...
Instead of boxing, let's take convicted felons charged with the most heinous crimes like premeditated murder and murder committed during child ra** and murder commited by terrorism. Put them in a large arena. They get blade weapons only. The more heinous the crime, the smaller the blade. Televise the event on pay-per-view. The rules? Survivor lives another day, and even gets first-aid for any cuts. That we, we take care of the death penalty and televised violence for the masses at the same time. If they survive 10 such bouts? For their 11th bout give them a pen knife and the other guy gets a machete.
