It's circular logic. We need goons so that players don't feel threatened by goons. In reality the goons aren't actually doing anything.
Lets say you did find yourself in that situation, would you rather...............have someone with you who is just as big and tough as the guy coming to beat your face in, or perhaps another smallish guy who is fun to talk to and hang out with but is really not going to help you if the big guy grabs you and starts beating your face into hamburger?

As per your point, yes, this was pointed out by many who opposed the "instigator" rule. Something that was brought in by a bunch of pimply faced lawyers and rich owners who never ever had to put their own ***** on the line even once.
