Who needs toe stops?

the only time I put on stoppers... is never... not even when playing derby.

During races I've had people run on stoppers only to fall behind me when I use a lateral start.

Anyone that puts a toestop in a prime location for runing on them isn't going to have the front axle in a good position for skating fast, and I'll pass them even if they do get off the line faster.

I dont brake for anyone unless absolutely needed. Theres almost always a way out or around someone
