At that time several thousand years ago in the Roman Empire, held games in big arenas. Can be seen still today one of the largest arena of at that time in Italy. In the Colloseum, several thousand Romans took place to see the so-called games. The former games had but nothing to do with the present. Mostly it was very rare in the dry sand of the arena. This fortunately no longer is the case. The Gladiators play, which were so popular in the Roman provinces as today the football the gladiators were the stars of the arena.
Of course, they were not particularly well equipped it cannot be said of today’s players. By good sponsorships, almost every top player wears his extra-made football boots. But still they are deified as as the Gladiators at that time. Especially the children and young people see the great idol in their heroes on the square. So it is of course also not surprising that many children and adolescents the same sporting goods to buy or wear the same sports as their Role models on the lawn. The Gladiators of the modern era to glory, honor, recognition and money play week after week. This distinguishes it from the gladiators in ancient times of the Roman Empire.
There were mostly slaves who fought in the arena for their lives. But this is also one great thing in common. Then as today does not care from which population one comes or what color man has, of course the denomination also plays no role, it is important only to making its performance when it matters.
