    Should Dodgeball be Banned

    View the video and vote. Is the schoolyard game of dodgeball too dangerous for our children?

    Dodgeball should be mandatory at all grade levels, and we should use those hard-surfaced balls that hurt a lot, like they had when I was a kid. It should be a middle school and high school sport with national rankings and Bowl games. Your team should lose points if anyone on your team cries because they got their nose broken.

    In fact, we should make it mandatory in college too. Need something to counteract all that leftist wussification they get from the Prof's...

    Re: Should Dodgeball be Banned

    I'm in P.E. right now for high school. We play Dodgeball pretty much every day. Never has anyone been injured playing. That man's cries of horror as, god forbid, teenagers lob cushioned balls at one another, were laughable. Now probably soccer balls were not a good choice, but that is a bad decision made by the instructor, not an indictment of the game worldwide. America has become a nation of pussies. No other way to say it.

    Just look at this pussy! He has every right to be in pain. This is a rock hard object screaming 90 miles an hour at his face. Dodgeball? Not so much...

    I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.

    No doubt that we are becoming softer.
    But, is this a good thing or not ?
    Have we been too hard in the past ?
    If, no real injuries, and the children want it, then it must continue.
    Many so-called adults can go soak their swelled heads.

    Re: Should Dodgeball be Banned

    When I was in elementary school, dodgeball was banned when someone got their arm broken playing it. I can see the rationale behind that decision, but I still think it was stupid. Note that the boy involved went on to get an arm broken twice more within the next two years.

    They should let the geeks and nerds opt out of games like this. It would be a shame to lose the next Einstein to a dodgeball accident.

    I do not need to see a video to know that banning dodge ball is stupid and that only pussy little bitches want to ban it.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Kids have died playing football. Don't see why dodgeball is singled out as aggressive
