I was thinking about starting a similar thread after the results of Seau's brain examination showed signs of CTE. I suspect, if it hasn't been done already, Seau's name will be added to the class action suit pending against the NFL in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

True enforcers have slowly been going the way of the Dodo bird since the 2005 Lockout. That being said, if the NHL rules committee ever decided to eliminate fighting, and by eliminate I mean change the punishment from a simple 5 minute major to something more deterrant, like a game misconduct and automatic 1 game suspension, it'll be to pre-emptively protect themselves from negligence or wrongful death suits.
