So what was the impetus for instituting this fighting rule did the league just institute this rule or was the impetus having Ty Bilcke rack up 35+ fighting majors. Have to love the Kitchener fans some of the worst I have seen.
Actually, a bunch of us have been saying that we wouldnt be shocked if we were one of the next teams to have a ruling against us. BUT, its innocent until proven guilty. I don't think Kitchener went down that road for many reasons (recuitment, STH as shareholders,....). Of course every team is going to feel the same way, I would imagine that some teams even cleaned up their act in '09 when the heard there was a watch dog.

And yes, rules get put in place to fix a problem. Was the new fighting rule because of Windsor...probably not but who knows. My question would be, would Windsor had the same results if Bilcke wasn't in the lineup those years? Is it a really big loss to reduce fighting?
