i took a look at that particular season's fighting data and point values and saw no direct correlation; is there data that supports his claim
In fairness, he also said that the thread was not meant to turn into a debate about fighting...

Back on topic, I think the shortened season ramps up the intensity, so I would expect more fights per game this year. I agree that we are going to be ready. Just the thought of Kaleta being even more of a d-bag because Scott is there makes me sick.
