Depends, you are comparing apples and oranges. There are MANY people that play football as oppose to not so many people that do what you do. Tough to compare....

That's not really a valid arguement Falcon, if many people jumped off cliffs, that still wouldn't make it a bright idea.

I never got American Football myself, it seems a bit brutish. Although don't they have some sort of medical personnel present most of the time? Yoyr fight club wouldn't have a medic.

A question I just thoguht of, which in no way is meant to insult. How old are you AK? I'm just curious to what age group this fight club would be taking place in (keep in mind I know very little of the US school system, so high school tells me nothing).

Also, noone is saying you're WRONG. We're just saying that in our OPINIONS there are more practical, and safer ways to achieve your goals. If someone came in here and argued that american football is completely safe, he'd get the exact same response.

And still nothing on recruitment...

We recruit only our friends, just to keep the environment less  aggressive, I suppose. I'm 16

actually, there really is no recruiting process, you fight if you want to, and you can leave at any time. Which explains the quotations around 'club'

Okay, personlly, I think that dancing around and punching each other in the chest sounds kinda silly. However, to each their own. I mean, if everyone is happy, there of their own will and no one is getting (seriously) hurt, then it sounds good. No different than, say, a rough game of tag.
Chances are, these kids aren't going to hurt each other any more than if they were playing basketball or punching a bag.

Good point, another reason not to do in-school-fights is because, you get out into the real world, get bigger muscles and either your or your oppenent will end up on the ground for a while.

There was an interesting example of this just yesterday. One local 12 year old hit and managed to "accidently" knock out his friend. Seemed that the
mock fight got out of hand.

We are God's forgotten children.

All good points except for the 12 year old boy story. Probably a much different situation then I'm used to. Controlled and pressure-less. You're all right, I really should exercise more caution, but I don't really care. "Different strokes".

May seem like an awful comeback, but I think I've explained enough.

Depends.....  

If you are trying to validate your point than, no, you have not made enough points to convince me.  That 12 year old was probaly think the same thing you are only the punch just happened to hit the right place. As far as I am concerned it is just a matter of time.....  :-/

Speaking of fist fighting.  Which alien race do you think would be the best in hand to hand combat?  I think the thraddash would be the toughest, although fighting an Ilwrath would be pretty damn scary.

Allright, I see your point, and no, I'm not trying to convince you of anything.

I sure wouldn't want to fight an ur-quan. All those legs with all those talons. Thraddash and Illwrath are tough, but I don't think anyone wants to mess with an Kzer-Za or Kohr-Ah.
