I can agree with this ONLY if the refs do a good job controlling the game, which unfortunately I find they rarely do in Beer League. Refs that let chippy play go and then stand back when one guy gets pummeled into the ice are totally useless. Whenever we have a pair like that, I wonder why we even need the refs out there at all.

In our league, the refs do break up fights, so it's a moot point anyway, but I've seen fights occur that could have been avoided entirely if the refs kept control over the game. I took my only fighting major ever in beer league about 3 weeks ago due to this exact situation.
