Edit - You're comparing hockey to football? Let the kids make their own decisions and drop the gloves. I have watched 20 or so fights (live) over the past two seasons,
and I don't think I saw anyone get injured
. The worst may have been a small hand injury from punching a helmet. I have evidence that fighting is in the game for a reason, too.
It has been demonstrated that head injuries are not something that one will "see" today. The damage is long-term and will affect the individual well after the fans stop cheering.
I dread the day one of my favorite NFL players, Troy Polamolu indicates he has long-term brain damage but it is coming.
