Thread Name: Folklore: Tag (the game)
Subject: RE: Folklore: Tag (the game)
This sort of thing ("Smear") makes me even more certain that my generation (I was in Primary School in the early/mid 90s) were a bunch of wimps! Or maybe the adults were just stricter. We'd never have played a game like that, we were a bunch of little crybabies.

We were even made to play some form of "safe" rugby in gym (it had a specific name that I can't recall - we weren't allowed to tackle or bodily attack others). I've still never been taught proper rugby rules...

I wonder if this is another example of adults smothering each new generation more and more...?
