MVP of the Week: Code Adam
You may know him from reffing at the absolute highest level, coaching a top level WFTDA team, making this amazing Anchorman parody video in 2016 or maybe from the but Adam just released a great piece on how and why "jammer points are dumb". I HIGHLY recommend reading through this for a great perspective on why the rules should change and just a better understanding of the rules overall! Thanks for taking the time to write this piece, Code Adam! We need more content like this in the derbyverse!
Fundraiser Highlight: HitSquad TV-Funding 4 New Original Programming
Were starting a GoFundMe page in hopes we can get funding for our new projects that include educational based episodic roller derby history, a short movie and much more!
These videos are hoped to be shown to our roller derby community, but will also serve a purpose of educating and reaching an audience our sport needs to grow and be taken serious.
All funding will go into better lighting, location, and being able to pay the people helping with projects. We appreciate volunteer work and feel they should be compensated in more than just food and a high five.
HitSquad is producing some of the best derby content out there right now and they have so many exciting ideas you're gonna love, but they need your help! If you can donate even $1, please consider supporting derby media!
