It is absurd.
Don't even bother. It's useless. I wasted way too much time trying to argue with that "crowd" today. They just don't live in the same world as we do. For them, what happened last Saturday is acceptable, and it's normal to see a guy like Gallagher who has to fight, because, you know, he took the other guy's helmet off.

And for the sole reason a guy might not be the best player out there, you know, our pro roster is too rich to have a guy like this as the 13rd or 14th forward. Because, you know, we have such high standards for our players, and we can't live without the great contributions of guys like Armstrong or Weber.

And of course, the time of pure enforcers in this league is coming to an end, because, you know, there are no such things as guys like MacDermid, Orr, McLaren, Shelley, Barch, Bollig or Bissonette in this league nowadays.
