I. Contemporary culture of violence in NA more than in Europe.

II & III. The NHL has shrewdly folded the forbidden (bare-knuckle boxing, illegal in most NA jurisdictions) into a mainstream product (hockey). It's as if *wild metaphor warning* a TV news team featured a young weather girl with prodigious pokies and regular wardrobe malfunctions. Ratings would rise, not due the quality of her forecasts but rather the attraction of the forbidden.
