Dallas school accused of staging fights
I want to make a napoleon dynamite joke so bad...but I can't word it right ;_;
i was in the a.v. club and spanish club never tried the fight club.
They broke the first rule of the fight club
Ah, so there IS something to comment on.
[/double negative trap]
I wonder did the school sell popcorn and drinks during the fights or taking bets?
I wonder if they had any awsome nunchuck skills?
So, for homework did they have to pick a fight with someone and then lose?
did the chemistry teacher make them burn their hands making soap?
did the fat kid with man-tits eventually quit support groups?
there is an awful lot to comment on....
Sweet, if only my High School had MMA fighting or a fight club in my days.
Also, I wanna say that the name of the kid whose mom pulled him out of the school is Robert Paulsen.
Not believing it until I see pics of the "cage".
ugh MORE problems with dallas schools......this is just not funny anymore...
it is wrong yes, but it might be an effective measure to settle differences. i think boxing instead of bare knuckle should be allowed in schools to settle differences.....crap like peer mediation (what we got now) just won't cut it anymore
Alright, that is so f***ing wrong.
Boxing? Are you serious? Not a chance in hell. If kids/parents want to do something like that after school and off the school grounds, more power to them.
Gym teachers are some of the worst eachers you'll ever run into. They'll go out of their way to pit the fat kid against his worst peer (claiming it'll make him a better person and teach him to shape up) and you'll see more kids get beat up (and allowed to do so!) than you'll hear of anyone learning anything out of it.
Boxing is a sport that requires skill. Sure, it looks like anyone could just step in the ring and take or throw a punch or two, but that ain't even the half of it. It's hard work, it's potentially dangerous, and it's not something to be taught in schools, it will be abused, much like the kids who'll be thrown in the ring.
Would you want your kids coming home all bruised up and battered because the curriculum forced them to throw on gloves and (some) protective padding and made them fight one another? I don't think so. (At least I hope you wouldn't.)
What the hell happened to schools? Kids were safe and learned something. They were protected, kept warm, and fed. Now...we throw them out like trash, allow them to carry guns to school, and let them beat the hell out of each other or use box cutters on one another (two girls at a local school, few years back. Yeah, a box cutter.) and they're learning nothing.
Anyone who would seriously support this, needs to be thrown in the ring and have Ali or Tyson just work them into a puddle of shit.
Yeah, you have to worry about someone who AS A CAREER decides to spend their life around sweaty children in their underwear.
AF's right. Even if they sparred like a couple of friendly gents, school is not the place.
Hell I wish they could strap the kids to their damn seats all day until they make them A's, this stuff's getting out of hand.
Im also worried about the good kids who come to school to actually learn, but can't help but to get distracted or scared from the intense atmosphere.
It's those small nerdy kids that get stepped on and ignored that usually grow up to become the big bad dog, don't piss them off.
alright i get what y'all are saying
.... but still....it's an option
High schools like to have popular sports.
Plus...who wouldn't want to see that annoying high school jerk assigned to detention in the cage?
I think they need to go about this the right way- permission slips, waivers, etc...but don't see this as an entirely bad thing.
I sense JR Ewing's hand in this.
Wow. Super old school reference ftw. (Dallas for all you youngsters out there.)
