Some things may never be completely removed by they can still try to minimize them if they think they're the most dangerous causes.
And of course fighting is a much easier line to draw than hitting, especially at the lower levels. Fighting is a discrete event that's easy to keep track of and pretty easy to judge, and hence is easy (or easier) to regulate via rules. Cracking down on dangerous hits is more complicated.
The question I have for you is if you agree with this? Meaning do you support it or are you just saying it is what it is and thats how it will probably shake down?
Just trying to determine if you are a wuss or not
