Which is funny considering that both leagues have overhauled their substitution rules repeatedly over the years.
The things you mention dont change the game directly and if you dont think that football players bite fingers or, how completely emulatable try ,to gouge eyes that's laughable. So your fine with players taking liberties so long as you dont have to witness them ? That your problem with fighting is not that it is injurious its so graphic that it offends your delicate sensibilities ? if only players in the nhl could only do the manly think and cloak the way they settle beefs and take liberties, then everything would be peachy ?
You're talking to someone who suffered two dislocated fingers and a permanent floater in his left eye (almost right in the middle of my field of vision) from being at the bottom of a pileup for a fumble. Quite frankly, I don't want to hear a word about "delicate sensibilities", or an education on what happens in football.
irrespective of when you became a fan of the nhl, you became a fan of a league with fighting. If this makes you feel so icky that you feel compelled to act the squeaky wheel, I'm sure you can find a no check pick up league somewhere to follow.
So when the playoffs or Olympics are on, do you prefer UFC or WWE?
