I think that those of us who were fortunate enough to have watched the finals last weekend from Milwaukee saw in the final 4 games what modern Roller Derby aspires to.
And WFTDA really got it right.
From the Divisionals to the Finals, generally the best leagues made it through. And the quality of the games showed it.
The semifinals were astonishing; I personally thought no team could come anywhere close to Gotham, but the BAD girls proved me wrong, and Texas almost pulled off the impossible. It is so good for the game that there are leagues that can play that way.
And people were able to see what active pack players add to the game. And next year if the new rules in beta testing are approved, I think you will see the game on a huge new level.
I can hardly wait!
