What do you think about the Gladiators getting the boot?

Jump to last reply

This is one of those things I can't make up my mind on. As many will know, the Rome government has said they are giving the boot to all of the guys that pose as gladiators around the colosseo. In a news report today, looks like they meant it and there has been some violence. According to the police, most of the gladiators are ex-cons, but then who knows. Yes, it is a scam, but let's face it the tourists seem to love it.

What do you think? Should they be allowed to stay, maybe be forced to get a license or forced to go in total, since the Rome city government thinks they negatively impact tourism?
