They don't fight every period though, MMA fighters do, every minute, every second of a fight.

The MMA reference by Cherry in the Sportsnet piece was about the so-called outrage of fighting in hockey, yet there is none in boxing (which has been around for how many years?) and with MMA, the fastest growing sport in the world.

The media (and fans by ricochet) are pushing their own agenda to ban fighting because they don't like it, but as Cherry is saying, instead of coming out to say what they want/don't want, they hide behind suicides, players safety and all other excuses.

Hard to argue against that.

I think it does. Now who's right Kriss? It's a matter of opinions, based on what may or may not happen in the future. Hard to prove one way or another.
