Cassandra Thompson's comment, February 8, 2015 3:48 AM
i agree that we are focusing a lot more winning than just enjoying the sport we play which does lead to all the fights that some younger kids look up to and think its okay. i believe that we should be focusing more on the game itself and enjoy doing something we love rather than giving kids the impression that it is okay to fight someone if you lose

Robert wilson's comment, February 9, 2015 7:08 PM
The way sports has changed through violence such as from the codes of state of origin in the 90s where the referees were much more lenient to fights and violence in state of origin to today's rules and referees which are much more harsher on player engaging in physical and violent acts outside the game itself on the field it will be a lot of help for talking about how violence is changing in sports from the perspective of player of the 90s to today's players in how violence in sports changes the game itself
