The J.Roy affair is seriously blowing out of proportion.It has generated a lot of controversy and publicity in Quebec,especially when the son of a well-known hockey personnality is included.If this affair has ever included the son of a much lesser-known person,it would be eventually ignored.
Ncaa hockey>>>qmjhl hockey...... So im ok with banning fighting it wouldnt not hurt players developpement (dont seem to hurt american players developpement that they cant fight) im wondering what will be the penality for fighting? And for the records i hate the fact that the governement got involded in this ****!
You're right. Had it happened in a game between Rouyn and Rimouski nobody covers it, and the Government does nothing.
But it got covered from sea to sea, from Hudson's Bay to Texas. And the report goes "This happened in QUEBEC, in the QUEBEC Major Junior Hockey League.". Can't have the precious Nation look bad.
So it won't happen again.
Man I wish they were that damn proactive with everything.
Seriously,the potential impact of this affair has been clearly exaggerated and the government who has passed this legislature has overreacted.You're exactly right,I also wish the governement in general were more proactive with certain issues/pressing needs who are important to solve in this society.Quebec government sucks as a whole,IMO.Political opportunism and will to gain political exposure are the motivations of implementing this ban.

Stupid reaction. Will they ban, taking 20 stride from the red line to hit the goalie also? No. It wasnt on the TV every 15 minutes on 4 channel steady(Only in quebec) for 5 days in a row and there were no Roy involved.
That's just plain ********. The kids cant even hit until they arelike 14 yo. They dont learn how to hit, they just know that they can so they think its cool to cheapshot others. And now no fighting. As someone said it'll all happen with the stick. "I can't drop the glove or I'll be sued, Alright I'll slash him 2 handed on the arm and get maybe 2 games out"
