there is a big difference between not being able to defend yourself ( like getting KO'ed) and CHOOSING not to defend yourself. By your rationale I can do anything on the ice I like and if the other team takes offense, I can simply choose not to defend myself and I should have the expectation that they will stop ? Really ?

When whitey tuned fleischman for running georges, Fleischman at the very least put up a token defense in that mismatch. Even guys who dont fight wont go boneless and let themselves be ragdolled and put their well being in the sensibilities of their opponents who DO want to fight.
