I don’t skate, but I have a lot of friends who do.
And there seems to be a universal concern that the new rule (?) allowing skaters to skate backwards and block can lead to serious injuries, harm to the breasts and chest, and even concussions.
Whenever I post something about the game, I am sometimes attackekd, but when one of my best friends and a great skater for many years says she won’t skate WFTDA anymore because of the perceived danger, that is a strong indication there is something wrong (and it is not just her).
I can’t do anything about it but if you think this is a real concern, you can.
