Subject: RE: BS: Violence in sports.
Your statement is incorrect HiLo. "There is no rule in the NHL which bans fighting..there ought to be. Also, the NHL is notorious for NOT enforcing the rules." There are rules and they are unforced more so than ever before. Hockey in the last 3 years has become a skating and skill game. Sure there are body checks and the "Odd Fight". But not like it was when it was the original six or the terrible years of the 80's and 90's. I gave up on watching for the most part back then. But now! it is one of the fastest sport games and one of great excitement. Like tonight's Red Wing Pittsburgh Penguins game.
