My Thoughts on Gender Equality in Quidditch
I’ve been seeing a lot of complaints lately about Quidditch not being inclusive enough for female players. The scope of the complaints is rather broad, ranging from the ratio not being exact enough to female players not receiving recognition. However, the root of all these complaints is essentially the same: male and female players are not being treated equally in quidditch. With all...
THE GOLDEN SNITCHY: The Spirit of Quidditch →
thegoldensnitchy: So the person who submitted the below confession sent me a very polite message explaining that they believe putting a spotlight on the athleticism in our sport takes away from the spirit that Quidditch once had four years ago. Tracing the message and realizing where they’re from, I completely…

thegoldensnitchy: Ever since I did my feature write-up on some of the top snitches of this past year, I’ve recieved countless messages requesting a tribute to some of the most important “behind-the-scenes” people in Quidditch. Reffing this sport isn’t easy… there’s so much action to keep your eyes on, and players… Not only is Sequioa an awesome ref, but she is also the beloved manager of...
A Guide to Understanding Your Team's Keeper(s)
While having a conversation with some of my fellow Keeper buddies yesterday, I came to the realization that we are kind of an enigma to the rest of the Quidditch world. There are things that make sense to us and not the rest of our teammates, and we tend to approach the game in an almost entirely different manner than most other players. So I now present to you a guide to help you understand...

iagosrevenge: Quidditch (yup.) related rant about to happen. Get ready. I’m on the best motherfucking team in the West. Yeah UCLA and USC got the medals but the Lost Boys have officially started to scratch the surface and people are already recognizing. We have at least one player at each position group teams… Santi, you guys are incredible. The more time you guys have playing and...
thegoldensnitchy: Brooms Up, Hilary Mankin. Rest in peace.

charliechasessnitches: It has been decided by myself and other gingers on my team: All Quidditch teams should be required to have one ginger to be an official IQA team. In the books, there is a ginger on the Gryffindor team at all times. Besides, we are a magical sort of peoples. The… I fully support this. However, we need to make a limit on how many redheads are allowed on any...
An Appeal for Calm
As I ‘m sure you all know by now, the Team USA rosters have been announced. 21 players on the main team, and 21 on the reserve team. Some of the players who were named to the team were expected by all to make it, while others are a bit of a surprise. There can be many arguments made that different deserving players got snubbed in favor of players who didn’t deserve it quite as much...

When older players try to get pumped up
whatshouldwecallquidditch: They end up looking like: You whippersnappers wish you had our awesomeness. Once you hit the quarter century mark, we can talk.
lsuquidditch: *In the tune of Part of Your World* Look at this Snitch. Isn’t it neat? Wouldn’t you think we’re the one team to beat? Wouldn’t you think we’re the gang…the squad that has all the skills? Look at this troupe, ready to run! Read More

thegoldensnitchy: Snitch life, while fun, isn’t easy. You’re guaranteed to lose every single game you play, and there’s tons of pressure to avoid ‘premature snitchcatchulation’. The worst thing in this sport is losing to a lame or controversial snitch catch, rather than a deserving opposing team… and snitches know… Brady is a freaking beast when it comes to Snitching. I Snitched like 3...
