Once you've finished your tea you can fight
BBC News - Boys' fight in cage 'very barbaric' says Jeremy Hunt
Reading through the comments on this story on the BBC and other places it seems people are coming to the conclusion that its exactly the same as a kid doing judo or other form of martial art as its well refereed, there is no danger to the kids so why the concern?
My problem is that judo, karate, or anything else isn't done in a working mans club, surrounded by beer swilling fag smoking dads goading their kids on, each bout isn't paraded around by a woman in a skimpy bikini and it isn't in a cage.
Some of the comments from parents are ridiculous too, things like "well if my son wasn't doing this, he'd be throwing stones at buses and causing trouble somewhere....here he is out of trouble". speaks volumes for your parenting there!
also comments like "this is good harmless sport, would you rather the kids go around with guns and knives". oh im sorry its one or the other is it? we can't have kids that neither fight in a cage OR carry guns and knives? again speaks volumes if you are saying "if i didnt let my 8 year old fight in a cage while i supped beer, he'd be out shooting people"
ah i'm sorry, my mistake, i must have mistaken the cage surrounding them as they fought for some sort of fluffy bunny. also the big CAGE banners around the cage gave me a hint it was a cage..
