Just a stupid phrase to equate it with shooting people with guns as a scapegoat for banning the game. Humans suck.

I really don't give a sh*t.  It's not like it's that amazing of a game anyway.

My school banned dodge ball too. The balls were heavy so we had to use foamed frisbees. :(

Man I loved dodgeball at school, nothing like soaring through air dodging people's balls.

I think that might be taking it a bit too far... Are snowball and water gun fights next to get banned?

That being said, I never liked dodge ball. There was always kids that would catapult them at your head.

They dumbed dodge-ball when they replaced the balls with foam balls. 

Now I can't smack my targets in the face as hard!

Schools are being way too sensitive about some of these issues. I mean really, dodgeball? Might as well ban all other sports while we're at it.

We had a variant called speedball at our school and it was banned outright because a kid broke his wrist and another broke his ankle in the same month. 

it's understanding that school are starting to ban dodgeball.

...well, at least in the New Hampshire school district. I won't be surprised if this spreads further though. There have been many cases recently of elementary-aged students being suspended for things like Hello Kitty bubble guns among other things. The New Hampshire school district is eliminating "human target activities" and things which promote violence, in this case, dodge ball. Link

Thoughts? Are schools becoming too paranoid?

That's what we used, then they thought we could use volleyballs until some kid broke his thumb. Now dodgeball Fridays have been cancelled forever.

haaa yeah, I remember those days.  Looking back, I kind of agree now and glad they pulled it.  We always had this one kid we would love to peg because...well, he was the wimpy, skinny kid with glasses and we were cruel school kids.  That's how it goes.  It was pretty hilarious at the time smacking the glasses off his face....not so funny anymore though.  His parents actually came up one day and talked with all the kids in the class about how we shouldn't beat the piss out of him.  Then, dodge ball was banned and replaced by a similar game which the objective was to knock down bowling pins on the opposite teams side.  Needless to say, we still chucked the balls at the kid.

Bottom line, you can learn the world is a cruel place without a game that singles out victims.

They should replace dodge ball days with capture the flag days. Those were so much better.
