Look at how they pretty much hide Avery in the minor league. How they shut him up when he said that thing about his former girlfriend. Don't shut him up, market the Hell out of this guy that make waves, make him a villain or something. Look at the NBA with Dennis Rodman. But the NHL are run with old men that are afraid of controversy.

Don't see why any hockey fan should care what fans of other sports think. This is why I never get into "my sport better than yur sport" arguments for 14 yr olds.

There are positives and negatives in every sport. To me personally...

the taunting in football/soccer/basketball>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> is far more disgusting on every human level than>>>>>>>>>>>>than two guys dropping the gloves, throwing a few fists with actually less chance of serious injury than non-fight elbows, going for 5 and calling it a day.

But no reason any football fans should care what I think.

When I see all these nerds journalists "oh if hits on the head is an issue, then all to the hits to the head should be banned including fighting". Yea, well ban boxing and UFC, then. They would never attack boxing and MMA because they are afraid of the consequences. Like the wuss that they are. It's like they justify in their heads that boxing is a noble sport even though it's about the same thing, really.
