I would have done the same thing with this guy if it had been going on previously. Especially if someone mentioned it to them and they still did it.
But yeah I agree with you just dropping gloves and beating someone would not be cool.
For an example in one of our men's league games we were losing like 17 to 3 or something stupid like that, our goalie was awful that night as well as the team as a whole who did not do much to help him.
Well a guy scored and then hammed up a "neh-neh-nah nah nah" dance and celebrated like they won the stanley cup. Normally that in itself would not be cause to do anything other than to get a few chirps but that specific game was cheap, chippy and elbows up, sticks up etc. That was just "it" we had had enough. Right when he did that about 4 of us dropped gloves and went after him. i didn't get there first but whatever.
There is a line that can be crossed and hitting a woman and weighing 250lbs crosses it ... especially in a ball hockey game for amatures to boot.
Sometimes an ass kicking is required.
Fighting in hockey was partially devised as a tool to protect players for this very reason. if you could kick his ass it would not happen regularly unless they knew they would answer for it. I am replacing a skilled player who doesn;t fight with a female player in my analogy. basically the same difference there.
it would be nicer to see a woman drop her gloves and kick some guy's ass for a cheapshot.
I agree, I don't know if this is politically correct (but who cares sometimes...?) but sometimes, you gotta be chivalrous.
