First we have violence is not good on one hand then on the other we have cage fights with children as young as 8 bashing it out with each other. And just to add when an All black goes gung ho on the booze we are quick to smack him down about his alcohol problem - really is it an alcohol problem? Hes a young guy, experimenting with the joys of getting wasted. If hes still doing it at 40 in the same state of mind then he has an alcohol problem.
So the media have a show day with his "Alcohol Problem" whooo you bad man.  Yet go to a rugby match the next day and see the signs and ads about alcohol! Its BS.

Yeah ok I just got up and discovered I've ran out of coffee.!

Anyways video has been removed, but it involves kids in cage fights! 300 anyone? Spartan training? I think the parents have gone to far with this one.

quote
"It's quite disturbing that some of those involved in the bouts were as young as eight, an age when they are still developing, physically and mentally.

That's nothing, go back 1000 years. The past 100 years of society is about 0.001% of our existence. 100 years ago this would have been fine.
