Great! That's really great.

I think there's room for both. It's not as if they're trying to pursue this as an olympic discipline, and I don't see why they should; as far as I can see, their objective is simply a different one (not a lesser one).

Others can develop "legit leagues" themselves if they want to.

: legit roller derby league (an actual sport)

To me personally, that sounds boring.
