I wish they hadnt focused on the fighting style of TXRD, and included a bit more footage of the WFTDA tournament level.....but it was pretty cool either way.

I agree. I thought it was really well put together, but they did tend to focus on the scrapping and fighting a bit much.

Then again, based on ESPN viewer demographics that's probably about right...

i dunno...ESPN shows EVERYTHING...its just pure sports, not some kind of macho guy thing.

I just think it was lazy reporting.
