|If the kids of the rollerskaters here dont want to rollerskate, I dont think other kids will want to either. All kids want to do what their friends are doing, that is either a skateboard or inlines. People like me who dont follow the crowd and can think for themself are very rare, pretty much extinct with kids nowadays, Rollercon is more successful since derby + rollerskates are already in and accepted amongst their peers. There werent nearly as many rollerskaters out there until being a derby girl became cool. Which is one of the reasons why I would never do derby, its about being in.
