The technical details do not matter. Due to this New York Times series, as of right now a lawyer can convince a jury that the league (or the team) was aware of the consequences and therefore negligent for allowing fighting. This is a workplace safety issue. They are knowingly putting their employees at risk. Right or wrong, fighting will be banned very soon because, if it isn't, the lawsuits are going to be overwhelming (and successful).

Also nobody who allows fighting is going to be able to get insurance.

Likewise, it's completely over for boxing.
