I know, but non-derby people get confused over this and assume a roller derby league like the London Roller Girls is a "team" because that's how it works in football, rugby, hockey, etc.
Mine or Jason's? I think the distinction is how many football or hockey teams play themselves competitively? Because the moment you have more than 1 team in a roller derby league they start playing one another.Phil wrote:umm what?

I will be coming from Manchester so if the weather forecast looks a bit dodgy for Saturday, I probably will not come. However, so far it is fine.
