Re: “Blood Sport

If you wish to spend your weekends beating each other up I have no problem, do as you wish. What I would like to know is how many of you have "real" insurance? In an economic time where many struggle to make ends meet, working jobs with less and less medical benefits, and struggling to pay for necessary medical attention, you waste the money of tax payers, the time of medical staff, and the resources of an already overwhelmed medical community. For those of you who may happen to have actual medical insurance, does your insurance company know about these activities? Does the insurance company who carries the policy for the home in which you have your gatherings know about these activies, assuming they have insurance, as the home owner is liable for any injuries that occur on the property?
My next question is whether any of the participants are screened for communicable diseases? Do you clean your "weapons"? Each and every person participating in these activities is at risk of contracting any number of dangerous and potentially life threatening diseases, or even worse, passing it on to their families. As participants, are you so completely confident in the medical backgrounds and social behaviors of the other competitors that you are willing to put your life or the lives of your loved ones at risk? Have you even considered the possible repercussions from your actions? There are countless people fighting every day to stay alive battling disease and illness and you all take for granted the opportunity to be healthy, you beat and damage what so many people would kill to have. Do you understand that it is not the act of you beating each other to a pulp that is the problem, you see, if your actions only affected yourselves it wouldn´t be a problem, but they don´t, they affect an entire community of people. It disgusts me that anyone would assume that this is done for the benefit for our community. It seems, to me, that many of you, competitors, fail to be thankful for all that you have in life rather focusing on the negative events that have altered your paths. May be you all should stop to consider the lives you have the potential to change for better or for worse, whose paths will you alter. The sad truth is that, at some point, something tragic is going to have to happen in order to open your eyes to the severity of your actions and by then it is too late.

In response to previous comments:

You are fooling yourself if you truly believe this is all for entertainment value, or at the benefit of our community. The economical resources alone being wasted on such selfish behavior is atrocious! If you want to do something to benefit this community give blood or volunteer your time to help someone else. You may just learn what true gratitude feels like when you give of yourself to help another who is unable to help himself.
