Yeah they haven't found any of the d-bags but apparently police are questioning one guy that posted on Broad Street Hockey that he was one of the three guys who beat up the Ranger fans...but then started back-tracking when he realized there was video evidence. Not sure what the questioning has uncovered.
Such a terrible incident and seems to be happening everywhere, not just in Philly, but yes of course, Philly will take the harshest criticism out of all the other incidents like this.
The question is, does the NHL do anything to stop this from happening and/or can they do anything to in some way punish these acts? It didn't happen on the actual property of the WFC or CBP, but I have a friend who is vehemently insisting the NHL bans the three guys from going to hockey games for life. If this would have happened at the WFC or CBP, maybe I can see the Flyers organization taking a pro-active approach somewhat like that but I also would think it'd be a logistical nightmare.
But it would set an example for the rest of the hockey community. I think about the most they could do is post these guys' faces all over their website and announce they are banned from entering a hockey game again. If they're caught there, they will be escorted out with no refund. Would there be some kind of legal issue that would prevent the NHL from doing this?
Sorry to get off topic...I was completely thinking my buddy was out of his mind when he proposed this but maybe he's not too far off???
