Just wondering.. what is currently the best video and / or infographic to explain the rules of roller derby to someone who doesn't know what it is? Until last week my parents thought the bout this weekend was happening outside and my other friends presume it's like Whip It, so we need to go pretty basic here. Also, might be useful for our new fresh meat intake.

Thanks! Yeah I used to always use that one but it seems quite dated now and I also can't really cope with the level of cheese! Will check out the others.

Sheila, the RTID one is perfect, will send on to my derby virgin friends for their baptism!
