We need to talk about:
2 Charm City skaters mooning the live-feed at WFTDA NE Continental Cup
- they were expelled from the game/tournament
- it sucks they chose to do this, especially right after WFTDA put out the letter to ESPN about being taken more seriously
- this apology sucks, edit: this one is better
- still no word from WFTDA or Charm
I feel like if this happened on the MRDA side, more people would be buzzing and call for immediate action from Charm and WFTDA. I know I've been guilty of it.
I'm certainly not trying to shame these skaters or call for further punishment, but I want to remind everyone our actions often represent others, like when wearing a jersey or skating at a high-level tournament. It's a great time to read over the WFTDA's new Tournament Code of Conduct!
