Re: “Game Changer

I'm surprised it took Chicago and others that long to figure out the "straightforward" style was susceptible to strategy. Roller derby is an amazing, athletic sport, but it is loaded with rules (and SEVEN refs for ten players!) that are just begging to be utilized. To suggest, even slightly, that the "western" style is less authentic would be like saying basketball shouldn't have a charging rule or that football linemen should be able to hold. Like all good sports, in match between two evenly gifted teams, the smarter one will win.
