I think a lot of it has to do with age/maturity of its members. I could be wrong, but I doubt many 13 year old kids are hanging out at a power lifting competition unsupervised. Plus, as mentioned, I doubt there is a large market for used power lifting shirts....

Its not the sport, its the people the sport generally attracts.

All are fair points. I doubt that the problem lies within the 13 year old player, but more so with the 18-25 year old clientele I would imagine.

As a kid i was dragged around by my parents to these "fun fly" events involving RC airplanes, cars, boats, and even submarines and helicopters.. Not a single person for security at the booths or at the camp grounds, and the close to a million dollars of Radio controlled units at the event with seriously like 500+ people at sleeping in tents, motorhomes ect not a single RC was ever taken, not jugs of nitro. At most there might be a discussion about who had what radio frequency first and it was solved.

This sports like the easiest thing for a shoplifter to gear up and walk past a tailgate with a gun and the persons back turned, lift it and slip into a crowd and its gone.

I'm not even sure it's an age thing. It's a piece of garbage thing.

If you need to steal other peoples **** in order to pay for you to play, you probably shouldn't be playing.

All of my extra gear stays locked in the trunk of my car. If someone tried to break into my car, I would have them arrested. Unfortunately people just let thieves off in this sport after an apology. The more people that actually get punished for theft or attempted theft, the more it will convince others it probably isn't worth it.

Again, this is assuming that you catch them in the act. good luck with that.

Goes right back to the age thing. A teenager probably won't want to deal with the police so no one will get in introuble.
