The New York Shock Exchange (NYSE) Roller Derby League is proud to announce it will be adopting a new ruleset starting April 1st, 2015. Although the league has trained and played by the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) Rules since its publication of the first unisex version of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) ruleset in 2011, the NYSE Board of Directors unanimously voted to take the league in an exciting new direction based on long-standing trends of popularity. And what could be more popular than a feline version of the rules of Flat Track Roller Derby? Yes, the Cat Roller Derby Association (CRDA) has released an all cat ruleset right meow. No kitten.
You gotta be kitten me.
