Let's restart these competitions today! Far better than the baby crawling races.

Oh yeah, nothing like a night at the fights with the babies, drinking formula and changing nappies.

Today child protective services would raid the place and take all the children into protective custody. Jail time all around for the adults involved as well.

This is still going on:
Daily Mail or WGNP

I also remember a Midwest father teaching his kids

Teenagers should join boxing clubs as a mandatory requirement I think, it would help keep that hormonal tension in check and at least give them something to do.

Patty- and rightly so. I had a student (8 or 9, can't remember exact age now) a few years ago whose "father" (sperm donor) made him fight with the kids of dear ol' dad's pals --- or they'd all get walloped by the dads themselves. Idiots!

I'm with ScoutC on this one. Every fight in the film was a mismatch, with the smaller kid wanting none of it, quite sensibly. All for the entertainment of a slew of inbreds. With enough head shots, those kids would grow up to be the audience for a new generation of child abuse.

I was not saying this is a good idea, I think its mean. I
was just saying it would not happen now-a-days.
