Even when play gets rough with the guys I play with, we all just smile shrug it off and laugh. Good times had by all. I won't play A-league any more because of wanna be hot heads.
In my experiences the lower the level of players you play with the more hot heads there is. My theory is these guys are new and are not used to contact despite hockey being a contact sport and take it personally.

But I agree fighting in beer league is stupid. The only way I would fight somebody is if I was defending myself or somebody did something to me so unbelievably stupid like try to injure me on purpose and I completely flipped my lid.
