Abseilers. What are your opinions about them? 1-Aug-2017 At 5:05:25 PM ldshield
>This is so ridiculous, I can't believe you've just written it. When numbers go up in AFL, you build more playing fields, more stadiums. How do you plan to build more cliffs? Comparing an urban team sport to an outdoor/wilderness activity is retarded.

You can't build more cliffs, but you can provide easier access to under-used cliffs. You're also assuming that climbing mostly occurs on natural cliffs, whereas (in terms of numbers of participants) indoor gym climbing is probably the predominant form.

My general point is that a small, 'boutique' activity is more vulnerable to external impacts (regulation, insurance, community perception of risk) than a large and well-supported one.

I take your point about fishing, though; you're correct there.

I don't want to ban trail-bike riding; I just want them to obey park regulations like everybody else manages to.
