My Thoughts on Fighting
Steve Yzerman. Two words for you.
Anyone who thinks fighting has no place is hockey is either an asshole or a fat woman from Boise, Idaho who lives on Cheetos and Jack Daniels.
Forget the arguments that if you ban fighting players will hit each other with their sticks.
Hockey would be as boring as watching snails fuck.
As for the “staged fighting?” I love it. Two guys line-up and the anticipation of men on skates about to beat the shit out of each other? How great is THAT? Take that away? For what we pay for tickets? I’d rather spend my money on Japanese anime porn.
I’ve got news for you, Jim Rutherford, THEY CAN SAY “NO!”
And this bullshit about not being able to take their helmets off? How the hell does the NHLPA agree to this? They would rather have their members break their hands punching plastic instead of a nice soft skull? George Parros fell and hit his face. Guess what? He was wearing his helmet. Ryan Flinn cracked his skull open on Staples Center ice. Guess what? He was wearing his helmet too and it fell off when he fell down. What’s next, you’re going to have to tuck your strap snuggly underneath your chin or you get a penalty?
Fucking STOP already.
If they want to fight, LET ‘EM FIGHT! Once again, and it happens ALL THE TIME, the player can simply say, “no, thanks!”
I’m not saying “heavyweights” aren’t useless. Most of them are. Hell, Jody Shelley had a long career of being useless. But watching these guy beat each other like an inbred hillbilly marriage? Fantastic. For years I just despised Donald Brashear (who is a reader of this wonderful trash) and when Steve McIntrye finally planted him on his ass, well, I’m writing about it now, that’s how much it meant. Matt Johnson ending Bukeboom’s career? Big John Scott destroying Kevin Westgarth’s face? Marty McSorley? Alexander Semin and his laughable bitch slapping? The list goes on and on.
Take away fighting, you lose a lot of fans, especially this one.
Blues 7 – Florida 0 – still think St Louis doesn’t take the conference?
Bernier 2-0, Frattin….?
Brad Richardson did tonight for Vancouver what he did in the entire last season with the Kings
Teddy Purcell scored his 56 goal since being dumped by the Kings
Peter Laviolette fired and Terry Murray hired in 5..4..3…
Kathryn Tappin has lost weight and is starting to look good. She looks better after a couple of shots.
