I watched a fight in the Ottawa-Toronto match just barely into the game. The fight had nothing to do with the game. It was just a show.

The player knocked out probably excited some viewers, but a very few were turned off. And that includes me. When I watch an NHL fight, if the fighters just do their thing without any significant damage, I can handle it. But what I saw in that game made me turn the channel.

Yes, I know you want me to find another sport such as curling.

But I've been watching hockey since the days of Henri Richard, and I don't want to watch anymore.

But I know I am a tiny minority, so please ignore my post.
Richard retired in 71 so you have been watching ever since then -or before- and NOW you dont want the fighting? There have been dozens if not hundreds of fights far worse than that in the last 42 years.

I would bet over 100-1 that you are not telling the truth.
