Take it outside

Publish date:

Many people say that fighting in hockey games is “popular” because all the fans love to see a fight.

I am a fan, but I don’t love to see a fight on the ice. To me, it ruins the beauty of a wonderful game. One can see fights in a tavern and the more beer that is consumed, the more likelihood of a fight.

Unfortunately, fighting will remain in hockey and in taverns and during the games. Drunken fans and unthinking lovers of violence will continue to stand up and cheer when two or more “sportsmen” drop their gloves.

If the “sportsmen” are really so angry with one another, why don’t they settle their differences privately after the game?

Just a suggestion.
