Props to Sports Center for thinking outside the box and spotlighting something new and different! I am part of a newly formed roller derby league in Lubbock, TX and we had our first public home bout this weekend. We had over 2,000 people come out, which by far out sold out our hometown arena football league who had a game the same night!! The women that are involved in this sport are true

Yes, but the one VERY IMPORTANT thing that Hell on Wheels doesn't cover is that roller derby is very real now, nothing staged about it. The WFTDA leagues (equivalent of our, skater NFL) follow strict rules which don't allow fake fighting or theatrics. This is very important for fans to understand. We are athletes. And the competition is extremely fierce, especially when we play at the

the documentary film "Hell on Wheels" is a from-the-trenches look at the original Austin league that re-launched the derby craze. It was shot from 2001-2004 and completed last year and will be available on DVD soon. It's currently screening in select cities. http://www.HellOnWheelsTheMovie.com

I've followed Roller Derby, closely, since the 60's. The comeback is real, and it's pretty extraordinary. The old Derby had evolved into a sideshow that was made for TV or a crowd that was into a carnival on wheels. The new version is more like X Games, an athletic competition that's mostly for the participants. It's the first time in its 73 year history that Derby has actually had people who

Roller Derby is way more intense than people realize. I can't wait to see ESPN's take on it! This year is my team's first season and we're having a BLAST doing what we've been training for (some of us have been training up to a year before)!

Roller Derby requires an incredible amount of athleticism, and it's poised for an incredible boon in popularity. SportsCenter's smart to run this one.



Oh goody.

I knew a lady that skated on Roller Jam.

I had no idea that roller derby was making a comeback.

When I was in college around 2000, I used to get drunk while watching Roller Jam. You had to drink to enjoy that crap.

I've run a few stories on roller derby because we've got clubs up in my area, and I gotta admit, it's a pretty fascinating type of environment and sport. The placement on SC is kind of odd, but whatever.
