The general population doesn't pay the bills. I'm sure soccer moms don't like fights, but if they banned fighting the soccer moms would not support the league any more than they do now.

If I remember right the g&m was fighting in general, not just in the NHL. I don't know anyone who advocates fighting in atom and pee-wee.

Right now in a gate driven league, the Canadian teams are generally doing fine. Why would they risk the sure thing they have now for the potential fans that would not increase the bottom line ? I'm with Chris nilan on this one, if they banned it and it alienated the current fan base and the owners find that the anti fighting potential fans are a fickle bunch, how in the hell could they reinstate it?
