Should fighting be banned from hockey?
Sat, October 4, 2008

Should there be fighting in the NHL? As the hockey season approaches, this question, once again, is being asked.

Some say that hockey without fighting is like the Ice Capades. I don't know what they're talking about. I've taken my granddaughter to the Ice Capades, and the fairy ice princess throws a pretty good punch.

We all know the great Rodney Dangerfield line about how he went to a fight and a hockey game broke out.

What's your opinion on fighting in hockey? Should it stay or should it go. Have your say in our forum.

A fight for hockey

If fighting were banned at the pro level ( NHL ) the league would become something like a minor league with the stick work and cheap shots increasing.

Fighting is a release of anger and frustration. Hockey is a tough, physical game and sometimes emotions get the better of players and they decide to fight. I am sure they would prefer to fight than get a stick in the face or speared in the stomach or an elbow in the head.

I dont see what all the fuss is about if its 2 players that both decide they want to fight.

Rating are up in the USA ? hmmmm i guess that means 110,000 people are watching instead of 100,000.

can you back up your comment with a link know it all wayne ?

NBC just extended the NHL contract. Said ratings are up and they feel they will continue to grow. Also looked at fight stats for 2008 and they are up from 2007, up from 2006 and up from 2005, well below 2004. So I guess people don't mind the fighting as much as they say. So if the league can grow without changing it much great. Good news for hockey. Drop the Ban stuff now.

RJ,

You should run for office since you can talk out of both sides of your yap lol. The other day you are saying to us to comment on the thread, then today you start your crap talk.

Practice what you preach or dont come in here if it bothers you so much.

RJ

How do you know this ? Did you go around and ask them ? lol.

pete puck head and wayne no fighting make some really really stupid comments that only a 12 year old could make up.

I think wayne is the 12 year old and is also pete clown lol.

Kevin,

Nobody is commenting in this thread is because they dont want you, wayne, or "pete puck head" to comment on theirs. And Pete, might not wanna commenton Kevin's age because if your the Pete who's dad got involved with everything then and made Jimmy of Hamilton stop (who ever thought anything could have made him shutup) then, well, you finish the sentance.
RJ, 2008-04-22 17:04:55

wayne

I dont care how old you are tardo lol. You are a moron. Just type the first retarded thing that pops into your head. Read over your comment before you click send and maybe you might see how dumb your comments really are lol.
Kevin, 2008-04-21 17:49:22

wayne no fighting

Your an idiot, fighting has always and will always be in the NHL. The players wont approve getting rid of it so suck it up wuss or stop watching.

You can always watch tennis or poker since you think its so big lol.

Damn must be nice to get paid ( job with the city of hamilton ? ) while you act like a bozo in here lol.
