    It's still around, although flat track for the most part. Some of the associated drama might be fake, but the injuries are real, at least in the small leagues.

      The injuries are most definitely real as they are in wrestling. These people take a beating and in some cases for very little remuneration. But the outcomes are known and much of the action scripted. As a youngster finding out that Yukon Eric, Killer Kowalski and the Zebra Kid were faking it came as more of a shock that finding out that Santa Claus was not the one giving me all those toys i found Christmas morning. i had suspected something was a miss with roller derby when it seemed like every contest was decided on the last jam-and the home team always won. But as a 7 or 8 year old-you just believe everything you see on TV.

        I think roller derby is actually on the short list for Olympic exhibition sports in 2020.

          That makes me want to puke. I had heard ballroom dancing was on the list also. I would rather they remove most if not all of the sports where judging plays a role. I want most everything there to be timed or measured. And put back baseball and softball. They can take out diving, gymnastics, boxing(unless you knock the guy out), figure skating, trampoline, synchronized anything (swimming or diving). Put them all in another venue and called it the Judging Olympics. I might watch that but only if they kept those girls who do the rhythmic gymnastics on TV most of the time.

            Pole dancing is also under consideration.

              From Wikipedia:

              The 2020 Olympic program will include a maximum of 28 sports. At the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, the IOC will vote on whether to include one of the following sports in the program: baseball, karate, roller sports, softball, sport climbing, squash, wakeboarding, wushu and beach soccer.

                      Not mad about the outfit. But sometimes you just never know!

                      I was kind of partial to Ann Calvello in the old days. (only kidding)

                        Didn't Assault City Roller Derby and Oz Roller Girls take them out? (Syracuse's and Oswego's derby teams in that league, respectively)
