With the traumatic injuries suffered by players of the Albany RiverRats and Elmira Jackals from bus accidents within the last 5 years, along with the tragic fatalities of the Swift Current Broncos players in 1986 the CHL and USA Hockey will be banning bus travel.
The options on the table are:
1-The elimination of all road games, thus making each game an intrasquad scrimmage (without fighting of course)
2-Since many of the players in question are teenagers unable to make a decision on whether or not the activity of riding on a bus in winter is safe or not a players parent (or parents) will be allowed to shuttle players to away games, presuming they also are seated safely in a minivan with front and side airbags so as to protect from injury.
This whole "ban fighting" argument literally makes me sick to my stomach.
The game we all love is dying a slow death thanks political correctness.
