Comment on the following statement:
|Violent sports should be forbidden. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Spectacular sports have always been popular with spectators. Some people think that aggressive sports such as boxing or MMA should be forbidden, whereas others do not agree. They believe that all sports including violent ones have a right to exist.
In my opinion any sport that involves violence should be banned. First of all, these sports encourage violence in society. For example, people watching aggressive actions of sportsmen try to copy the same behavior in their everyday life. Secondly, a high percentage of participants of such competitions often get seriously injured.
Nevertheless, some people think that aggressive sports should be allowed. They state that these sports are strictly controlled with rules and regulations. Therefore, these sports are safe. They also take into account the commercial profit from these sports which can be very high.
I cannot agree with the opinion mentioned above for a particular reason. Though there are rules and regulations for these sports, they are often broken by the participants. What is more, no profit can be a good excuse for injuries and aggression.
In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight violent sports attract people and should be done without restrictions, but in actual fact such sports endanger people’s health and may cause violence in society. Thus, I strongly believe that violet sports should be forbidden.
