Imagine if there was a Para competitor, bet the banter wouldn't make onto TV! Could result in the first Gladiator death as unit pride takes over!!

To be absolutely honest SF I do admire the way the lads put themselves in harms way out in The Stan and Iraq often for little or no recognition. Look at the way the Septics have gone overboard about their SEAL operator throwing himself onto a grenade to save his mates, he died. A very brave thing to do and may he RIP. One of our RMR lads does it and our bloody Government responds as if to say 'yes, well done old chap, always knew he would you know'.
I've got a cousin in the Paras and he's always banging on about how the Royals always seem to catch the publics attention whereas they do just as much dangerous stuff blah blah blah. I tell him they've got better PR and he says there may be something in that! However he doesn't like the 'a RM is a thinking mans Para' dig!
Mind you if a Para was to take part in that Gladiators lark then there really would be blood on the carpet. Both the Green and the Reds play for keeps and I'm glad the're on our side!

IIRC, the first ever episode of the "old" Gladiators had an ex Para against an ex Bootie. For the life of me I can't recall who won. Age ...grumble ...

I recall that the Para won, by a gnats testicle.
