Incredibly stupid reasoning.
"Sweden says “nej” once again to the sweet science
Sweden, the birthplace of former heavyweight champion Ingemar Johansson and a land notorious for its long days and even longer nights, recently passed a new law reinforcing an old law that bans professional boxing from its chilly northern clime.
The anti-boxing faction in the Swedish Parliament’s June 15 vote won the day and it’s a terrible blow for those who consider boxing pro social and not just a game of black eyes, broken noses, and larcenous intent.
The old anti-boxing measure has been in effect since 1970 and has forced many a Swede with an itch to fight to immigrate to our shores.
The new law states that all combat sport (pro boxing, K1, UFC, etc.) promoters need a license from the state to stage competitions; said license will only be granted only if the safety of the athletes can be guaranteed 100% safe (like in checkers or chess).
The new anti-boxing edict, which differs from the old anti-boxing edict in name only, becomes law on September 1. "

All that mighty viking blood became blubbery vaginal fluid the moment they started listening to ABBA. When boxing gets banned in the land of the mighty, pillaging, raiding vikings, then we know that the survival of the human race is in deep ****. We've gone from fur-wearing mammoth hunters to gap wearing soybean munchers. The horror, the horror!!!!

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Which just goes to show that socialists are pussies.
Maybe we can invade Sweden next, and make boxing legal again? All in the name of spreading freedom and democracy, ya know.

When did Sweden turn into a country full suburban housewives? At least the Dutch are keeping slack for Scandinavia.

The scandinavian countries are really strict when it comes to these things, pro boxing is also banned in Iceland, amateur boxing was banned too until a few years ago.

Pussies..what the hell ever happened to the Viking heritage in that country? They are starting to get better at Hockey too, which really pisses me off.

Up until recently I thought my country really had it's **** together and that laws based on completely made-up facts and weak arguments like this would never pass.
