DC: Pac Destruction – Day 3

The London Rollergirls put off sanctioned play in 2015 until June, which meant they entered the United States perhaps a bit underranked at #11, as the rest of the top ten were active, and moved places around them. Their 294-56 loss to Gotham last July will linger on their stats going into playoff season, but [...]

DC: Pac Destruction – Day 2

The London Rollergirls continued to dominate their Brawlifornication Tour on Day 2 of Pac Destruction, defeating the Angel City Hollywood Scarlets, 218-117.

DC: Happy Mother’s Day

We were lucky enough to get a ‘behind the scenes’ from some of the people featured, and the film-maker behind the whole thing. You might recognise the name behind this video, because it’s the very same one that made the Vagine Regime documentary, In The Turn – Erica Tremblay. Now in Boston, and skating with [...]

DC: International Tell Your Crush Day

Yesterday was apparently International Tell Your Crush Day, and we want to honor all of the serious derby crushes we’re holding on to everywhere. We reached out to a handful of skaters on the day, and they told us all about their favorite derby crushes. Which means, I guess, that they’ve ‘told’ them now, via [...]

DC: See Derby #doitfor57

But first, an important reminder. Bullying doesn’t just look like the classic movie image of kids beating on smaller kids. It can look like the kind of discrimination that allows some people to rally to wear turquoise, but forget to make sure that gender neutral bathrooms are available at the venue so that no one [...]
