Re: What sports work for you?
In reply to Great Bustard, Mar 29, 2013

I was just making an observation of how a type of behavior is communicated in simple childrens' games. As a kid, dodge ball wasn't the problem. It was a type of organized extreme violence against one or two kids by a gang of kids. As I remember it, it could get pretty ugly. Perhaps, it is inevitable and sports are just a way of monitoring chaos and natural violence of young males. But different cultures such as Sweden deal with education in a more balanced way. Just sports without teaching something to counter the group predator instinct leads to something like what happened in the gang rape of a drunk girl in Ohio.
