Very true, but as they were saying on the show, the risks(to the jousters) are the same to them as they would be if they played football, or fought in the UFC, ect, ect.
IMO I think it could be good for the horse industry/world to have it as a sport, I feel as if it would open up more jobs for people in the horse world. But at the same time, I don't know if I like the idea of seeing jousting represented as a sport like the UFC....if it was represented more like a Dressage/Jumping/Eventing type of show I think it would be more suitable, to me anyways
