ALBANY, New York (AP) -- The high-energy school yard game of dodgeball is getting kicked around a New York courtroom, where questions are being raised about whether it's just too dangerous for young children to play.

My weights coach found out that he's going to be fired at the end of the year, so all we've ever been doing is dodgeball. It's fun as shit and you use a lot of energy.

It's funny to hit the fat kids.

Good point.

Golf can potentially kill someone, yet I have never heard of a scenario where a child died from dodgeball-related injuries. At the same time, do you think any of these judges are shutting down their country clubs out of public safety fears? No way.

Maybe spontaneous dodgeball games were breaking out in the streets between the Sharks and the Socs or whatever those gangs are, and by banning them, less serious violent acts will occur instead - like random shootings.

I hated dodgeball, but I was good at it. Mainly because I'm light on my feet and I always hid in the corner.
It's kind of stupid but it's good exercise. I don't see the point of banning something just because you could get hurt-that's like banning the swings because if someone jumps off they could bust a leg.

Whenever we used to play we had a rule that if a player hit someone in the head they had to sit out for 3 minutes or something. And that's a hell of a punishment when you see all the frenzied dodgeball action going on and you can't join.

The only sport other than dodgeball that gets most of the kids actually breathing hard (meaning they get into it) is frisbee. Frisbee kicks ass.

We just had the 'headshots don't count' rule. It was pretty efficient.

This is beyond stupid. People are too politcally correct and get up in arms to fast over things. Damn in 1987 playing dodgeball if you took a bad hit you got right back up and played the next game looking for blood, hell even the small kids loved it.

We have a society of idiots with no focus or attention, and sue at the drop of a hat. KIDS ARE SUPPOSE TO BREAK BONES AND GET CUT, its what they do. I got numerous stiches in elementary school from playing on the play-ground, no school adminstrators got sued, cause kids do this kind of thing.

We used to try and bean each other in the face, as hard as we could. I felt a little sorry for the kids with glasses, but it was more fun that way. We were all like haha broke your glasses. Then the teacher would make the RULE of no face hitting (even accidental) or your automatically out.

I never doged I always one of those kids who caught the ball. There were like ten kids who regularly caught the ball. Kids always seemed the most scared of the kids who caught the ball.

Ban Nova?

Kids these days are pansies. I remember when people got hurt playing dodgeball in our elementary school gym class, if they cried, the gym teacher would be like "get up keep playing, wimp, you're not really that hurt" and they never cried in gym class again.

I'm happy and also sad to see Nova banned. I'm happy because Nova being banned is cool, but I'm sad because I was very excited when I saw the thread tag and wanted to ban him myself.

i think we should ban everything from life that has potential to cause or play a role in causing (even if not through its own fault) any sort of harm, pain or discomfort. starting with gravity, wind, electricity, fire and anything not made of velvet and foam. we can all adopt a sedentary life style where our daily nutrients are rationed out by the government and fed to us by soft, happy puppies as a non offensive, neutral colored warm liquid.

I hate yankees and this is one reason why. Just because you can't pay for 3 hot dogs doesn't mean that the economy is bad and ya'll think that bush is an idiot because he's from Texas. Well f you because he saved your ass from people like Sadam Houssein and don't go thinking i'm just a minupulated trailor trash illiterate for taking up for him because I'm smarter than 90% of the world.

Frightening social changes continued! And then the religious right began a righteous backlash! First they accused gays and lesbians of being promiscuous! And when this failed, they began accusing them of having long-term committed monogamous relationships and wanting to get married!
