    I agree, if the strap breaks from normal use, it should be considered defective...The strap is a integral part of the Wii package for a reason: YOU NEED IT TO SAVE DAMAGE TO OTHER PLAYERS AND YOUR TV! I agree, you are probably a little over eager if you break the strap from tossing it, but I would be willing to bet the most if not ALL the reports of broken TV sets so far or from players either NOT using the strap at all or not tightening it and letting it fly off...and concocting the broken strap later to tried to hold Nintendo accountable.
    Not saying the straps CAN'T break, of course they can, but you'd really have to seriously stress it.

    Actually the equivilant would more be like pressing your eject button with an over exaggerating gesture and having the cd eject-out and break an object in your room. A cd player isn't ever meant to be swung, where are the Wii remote is. The Wii is marketed to all ages, people who aren't experienced with any kind of controller is Nintendo's mareting stradegy, yet these same people can't be called idiots when they have a false sense of security that the straps will protect their TVs. Granted they through them harder then the "safety strap" was designed to handle, however nowhere did nintendo include whats "to much" to put on the strap. Most people even thought the strap was a silly idea, yet alone the people who actually put them on and unfortunatly broke their televisions. If you ask me we should all be thankful our TVs didn't break, and vigorously warn players of the dangers.

    I know I thought the strap was stupid until I heard of them flying around everywhere. I own a 70" TV. I would be PISSED if someone through the remote and broke it. Its hard not to miss a big screen tv. So I advise everyone who plays of the danger and tell them not to throw at the screen. They do so at their OWN risk.
