What can Roller Derby learn from World Cup futbol?


Soccer is the world’s game, whether we like it or not in the US.

To some it may seem slow, complex, but really it is a very simple game. And they are smart enough not to muck it up.

Continuous action (note they do not allow television to have commercials during the play, except for a small visual of a product by the score); the one referee doesn’t slow things down……for some reason the fans don’t like officials huddled and the players not playing….and not excessive rules.

The fans know that any one score can mean so much so the anticipation is tremendous.

And if anything, there certainly is not an excess of cheap points.

the players don’t stop and just stand around.

And continuous effort and speed, and the fans love it.

That’s all I am saying.

Obviously if your attendance is maintaining and growing don’t pay any attention to the above.
