I love how hockey gets a negative image because of the fighting, yet sports like boxing and MMA are venerated.
You never see an article about what Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather's mental health will be in 20 years as a result of their respective sports, do you?
That's because hockey is easy for people to pick on. It's not as popular as a top flight boxing match; it doesn't receive nearly as much attention.
Picking on boxing doesn't fit people's agenda. It's almost as if they're saying "ah we might as well kick hockey when it's down, because no one in this country cares about it anyway."
That's my point of view anyway.
