    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Probably the best thing. When girls get angry they go below the belt, as to speak.

    Mother is an assistant principal at a less than ideal school here in Texas. I was there in once (job related) when a fight broke out between two girls. The looked like giant vibrating dust bunnies with the hair flying around. I think if they had to wear gloves it would take away some of the awesomeness of the event. But to be honest it would be alot safer than some of the scratching that happens.



    Do I have to take some people into the ring here to get some "thanks"? Bunch o' thankless newbies around I tell ya.

    I think the school is missing out on additional and valuable educational opportunities.
    They could bundle this a whole lot better.

    There should be scorekeepers and someone booking bets.
    There should be an entrance fee of a quarter.
    The kids could learn something about odds, bets, and why it's best to be the bookie and promoter.

    Lesson 1: There aren't bad bets, only bad odds. You do not have to take bad bets.
    Lesson 2: Not all sure bets pan out.
    Lesson 3: If you pick the easy wins, you might not make money on huge odds, but it will accumulate over the long haul.
    Lesson 4: Long shots are called long shots for a reason. They rarely pay off.
    Lesson 5: If the game seems rigged (dishonest judges), don't play.


    This Euro could do with a few rounds worth of fighting lessons from that high school.

    I haven't seen a pack of Lucky Strikes since the early 90's. I do not believe they are still being manufactured.

    few things.

    1. Rangers suck

    2. this is not a "cage match" it is boxing and I see nothing wrong with it.

    3. More schools should do this.

    4. Rangers suck

    Re: US high school 'held cage fights'

    Anybody who has raised a boy to adolesence (me, for one), and didn't willfully emasculate him with all this modern PC crap, KNOWS that boys (especially in middle school) have a natural degree of aggression that needs an outlet.

    Sports is a big outlet for many. Some anthropologists have compared football, the other football (rugby/soccer/whatever), and so on as a psychological substitute for tribal warfare.

    However, boys that age also tend to get into personal disputes. With all those hormones raging, and the built-in competitiveness and desire to be seen as tough guy, there needs to be an outlet for that as well.

    IMHO, you can do one of two things:
    1. Like most schools today, you can ignore these truths, pretend that all violence is always evil, pretend there is no difference between boys and girls, and try to force boys to act like pansies. The end result of this is stuff gets settled in some un-controlled manner; given the gangsta-wannabe thuggism prevalent today, somebody gets a gang-beatdown or stabbed or shot in many cases.
    2. You can provide an outlet for this anger and aggression, in a controlled and overseen manner, as this Texas school did.

    Girls fight sometimes too, and ought to have access to this outlet when they ask for it; but for the most part girls fight in more subtle ways using social pressures and interactions as their weapons.


    A friend of mine who trains cops in HTH has been lamenting the fact that many of his new recruits grew up having never been in a single scuffle in their adolesence. Their lack of confidence in themselves is devastating to their ability to learn what they need to learn to do the job, and tends to result in either timidity or in overcompensation (over-aggression). To be a man, a boy needs to have tested himself in this manner so that he has confidence that he can handle himself if the need arises in adulthood.

    my two bits...
