I play in a "non-contact" league that encourages a little bumping here and there... as a defenceman it drives me nuts because sometimes I just have to let the jerk not wearing his pads by me (when the only option left is a little bump out of position, or a rub-out along the boards). I find those shifty stickhandlers love to do that, and it really just annoys the heck out of everybody.
That's weird. I've seen that girl players in my non-contact league draw more penalties than usual, I've seen penalties doled out according to "reputation" but I'd never expect to see one guy go to the box because he collided with somebody wearing less equipment than the other.

And I done saw just about everything when I seen an elephant fly.
