Have you ever thought of this question ? some sports are in a way ruled or regulated violence? like boxing? wrestling ? I mean, boxing was originally a violence activity for money, they used to fight for money so that some were seriouly injured or killed. But ever since some general rules were introduced, such violent behavior, actually a fight, turned out to be a "nobel" sport? If this works, why not turn rapes, murders into sports as long as they are regulated to a certain extent ?

I just don't know why you hated boxing most...Okay if we considered what you wanted to be, like rape and murders turn into sports. What if you're the woman to be raped and being murdered would just be alright with you because you like this to be turn into sports...how would you feel? You want a sadistic actions turn it into sports? Think it over...

I'm afraid you misunderstood me. I mean boxing is so violent, it used to be a cruel fight, later some rules were added into it and then it became a game. But i don't see it a necessary and beneficial game. Other violent hebavior like i mentioned above, they are as bad as boxing. But could such bad behavior turn into a sport if they are protected by "regulations" ? No way ! right? so why is boxing OK?
