This is true. Generally, its because most if not all guys in the higher leagues have played some junior or at least some travel hockey growing up, so they are generally more laid back and have a sense of how to play and the unspoken rules of beer leagues.

In the lower leagues you generally see guys that are currently playing the highest level of hockey that they have ever played in, unlike the other group, so they are way too into it. Generally, 90 percent of the fights, ejections, overly dirty/chippy play occur in the lower leagues. It seems as they are either trying to imitate what they see on tv or are trying to make up for having never made teams when they were kids.
