First of all, I won't argue against what you think, because you probably have a very good idea of that :-). Second of all, will you please define "extreme" sports?

Next, by "there should be" I assume you mean extreme sports to be accepted in society and available via mass media e.g. television. You are arguing we should have extreme sports because they are "fun and amusing." Is this the point of sports, to be fun and amusing? Or is it instead to compete and see who or which team is best? Or is it to create revenue for a business? Or is it to keep people in shape and striving to achieve all that they can physically? All of these could be reasons why sports exist and are acceptable and encouraged in society.

If extreme sports means like what took place in the Colosseum in ancient Rome, or perhaps the original UFC in which almost anything went, we can debate the ethical problems with that. Thanks for posting this debate!
