They had not authority there, but as adults they did put an end tothe fight if somebody had not already won.

    Best fight ever there was a girl fight. but it wasnt a cat fight. One of the girls really knew how to fight. She struck the pose, raised her fists and when the other girl charged with arms flailing she just gave her the hook from hell. Knocked her ass right out
    Better than any cat fight i ever saw before or since
    Women are absolutely brutal in a fistfight.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Adult supervision during the fight including a safety ref.

    The only thing I can see wrong with this is abuse of a "fight club" looking to pick fights and have it sponsored by the school. Granted though, most principals are pretty well tuned into this kind of thing. Well, there's the parental consent stuff too but then you don't need parental consent if you're going to get your ass beat afterschool in the parking lot do you?

    When I was kiddo in Texas you could put the gloves on and abide by the rules of boxing. Or you could just take it off campus if you wanted bare knuckled.

    One day I took on the nose guard for the football team bare knuckled....big mistake for me and my bloody nose.

That, and it probably would have been better to use an open space instead of a cage.

    This is still a damn sight better for the students than having them expelled and arrested.

    Still, it makes me wonder what the principal was thinking in the current legal and cultural climate.
    I'm glad some other folks are coming in this thread and asking if this is really such a terrible thing. Two kids want to go at each other, I'd much rather have them do it with safety equipment and responsible adult supervision than out in the field behind the school like we used to do when I was a kid.

    Though I also agree that in our modern legal an cultural climate, you have to wonder what were they thinking.

    I'll run your ****.
    I am just trying to figure out why you have decided to insult me, especially if you have no the **** idea who I am. I would recommend stopping the personal attacks.

    I don't reckon this thread is ready to go to the Basement yet. There's still some valid on-topic discussion to be had.
