This is an exception to negligence claims by athletes involved in contact sports. Under the exception, a participant in a contact sport may only sue for game-related injuries that are intentional or inflicted with reckless disregard for the safety of other game participants. Leonard v. Behrens, 601 N.W.2d 76 (Iowa 1999); Picou v. Hartford Insurance Co., 558 So.2d 787 (La. App. 5th Cir. 1990)
