I heard this on the news last night and it makes me sad. In Attleboro, Mass. contact games such as tag, touch football and the like are no longer allowed. The reason they banned it, too many kids were getting hurt, or so they claim. Shoot, the best part of playing those games were that you were having fun and not worrying about getting hurt!

I remember playing dodgeball in school and getting hit with the ball in the stomach during gym. It only hurt for a little while, not bad enough for my mother to have to come and take me to the hospital and claim I had been injured from playing the game.
