    Clearly Emile you did not re-read the thread carefully and the mis-information provided is from you. As you can see i highlight the flaws in the CRB system & also highlight that it is more of an issue for coaches. I won't hold my breath for an apology though.

    I do however agree that it is a shame that this thread went so far off topic (largely due to myself- i said so earlier & that is why i have reduced the amounts of responses.)

The inclusion of children competing on professional event cards can only help legitimise the sport and further us away from the stereotypical views currently held by the mainstream uk media and general population. there is no outcry when children compete in amateur boxing tournaments or other "traditional" combat/mixed martial arts therefore why should mma be any different. I am more than aware of the stringent safety procedures implemented at the Cage Gladiator events, I could go in to more detail regarding these procedures but feel that its not warranted in this forum environment.

    In reference to the issues raised over CRB and related legalities of children competing, I知 surprised how much mis-information has been posted in this thread. Dirty dick, it seems that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing in your case! you have posted regarding the issue of CRB ( not relevant in relation to a child competing in a sporting event in a licensed premises). the only time CRB is relevant in this situation would be a training/teaching environment were any teaching staff would have to be CRB checked. If we use dirty dicks premise it could be argued that anybody watching the bout would have to have a valid CRB- are you saying that this is how it should be? in relation to a local area safeguarding committee they would be operating out of their remit and have no legal standing in relation the governing of the event.

    I知 impressed that you have been so interested in the event especially as you "don稚 care for the individuals involved". in fact so impressed that I have written to Gordon Brown and have recommended you for a role as a cabinet advisor in helping contribute to the nanny state that we live in.

    Oh and before I知 accused of making something personal or attacking somebody痴 personal views- I知 not, I知 just correcting the inaccuracies posted in the thread.
    well said emile. jon
