The River Roos love rafting, but ill-fitting equipment and a feeling of inferiority are big issues they want heard

In the niche world of rafting, safety comes before all else, but when the industry hasn’t opened itself entirely to women, it’s no surprise their safety hasn’t been fully considered.

In its simplest form, rafting only requires a raft, a paddle, a life vest, and a helmet, yet women working as commercial guides and as outdoor education teachers are still struggling to find equipment in their size. 

Access to well-fitting equipment is essential to safe rafting, but competitive and recreational participants find it nearly impossible to find life vests to comfortably and securely fit over women’s chests.

Meanwhile, others are struggling to maintain control of paddles with shaft diameters and handles bigger than their hands can hold.

In college football, bad blood is nothing new

The ugliest coaching feud in college football took another outrageous turn, and this time nobody could deny that things had gotten out of hand. An angry $10,000 lie detector challenge? A “sorry bastards” insult on the news wires, followed by vitriol so acidic it made the sitting president of the United States uncomfortable?

Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban still have nothing on Darrell Royal and Barry Switzer.

We tend to be prisoners of the moment, especially when each moment spawns a few thousand tweets, and that can make it easy to believe reruns are unprecedented. When coaches with the championship stature of Fisher and Saban trade pointed barbs and outright accusations, as they did this week, it makes some wonder how a fun little sport ever could have come to this.
