(Newser) Fight Club lives on. Eight junior high boys have been suspended from their school in Naperville, Illinois, for running their version of a fight club, reports the Chicago Tribune. It seemed pretty well thought-out: The kids has safety words and rules, and even posted fights to YouTube. (Police have taken down the videos.) The youths were done in when an officer at the school noticed one of the boys walking out of a locker room with a black eye, and he couldn't come up with an explanation on the spot.
