A GAME OF DENIAL

THE ASYLUM: For the care of people, especially those with physical or mental impairments, who require organized supervision or assistance.


A GAME OF DENIAL
Johann Wagener 4-3-13

Crippling yourself dribbling a ball up and down a court is taboo when it comes to showing the broken bones, blood and gore. Takes all the fizzle out of the sizzle and damages the "image" which is more important than the players or their well being. 

For all the talk of our society being desensitized to violence, the sight of blood can still cause people to react in strange ways.
There is no doubt the injury suffered by Louisville’s Kevin Ware on Sunday during his team’s regional final win over Duke was gruesome, but the reaction of the some of the media has just been plain weird.
