In hockey fight are usually like 20 seconds long and there's no problem with a fight to get the fans and the team in to the game, also protecting your teammates and who cares about getting suspended I'm talking immediately after the cheap shot or dirty hit, Example Let's say this year there was no fighting and Let's say Mcdavid gets a Intentional elbow to the face, you want his teammates to stand there? well if you do there's something wrong with that, that's why need fights.
If someone hits Stafford from behind in today's Lions/Seahawks game after the whistle and knocks him out of the game will any of his teammates pull of their helmet and get into bare knuckle boxing match with the guy who did it? No, because they would be suspended for a quarter of the season. They would allow the league to deal with the offending player with a fine/suspension. What a concept. And generally speaking you see less cheap stuff in football than hockey.
