In the aftermath of fighting being taken out, if it is, everyone will be trying to irritate the opponent into throwing punches now that its illegal, especially players who played in the league when they could fight.
The Cooke's of the world will have to play the game without the fights and without the linebacker hits that are delivered with no regard to the opponent no matter what the state of his positioning is in, its still the wrong way to go when playing a game, a sporting event.
