There is a report on the G&M rooted in the recent incidents that occurred this week with regard to the aggressiveness of fighting and checking. Here is the link: http://www.theglobea...article9496814/

Firstly, this is my first post. So, hello. I'm more of a reader/lurker, but I do enjoy having meaningful discussions. I don't know hockey inside-out, and there are probably many of you who know more about it than I. So, I apologise in advance if anything I ascertain turns out to be dead wrong. It's all a learning process for me, as I do like the game and have been watching for quite a few years, and not just a 'bandwagoner'.

Anyway, how does everyone feel about the fighting? I recently moved down to the States (SoCal) and I must say most people here seem to really love the fighting when I compare them to Vancouverites.

I've been thinking a lot about this. I understand those in favour of fighting and aggressive/physical hockey use the tradition card; stating that the game shouldn't be changed because it loses its traditional essence. A while ago I remember Don Cherry comparing the fighting to how baseballers (pitchers) throw the ball at the batter's legs/body to intentionally hurt them to get them back for something. So, he seems to be saying that fighting has this protective nature to it. It sounded to me like a clan mentality, which I must say is barbaric. Sports fans are traditionally very aggressive, loud, and stereotypically 'male', so I understand why all of this is causing a controversy. Especially in hockey, where adrenaline runs high, reflected a lot in the type of music organisations like LA Kings play: metal.

I feel if the players like to keep this fighting tradition, then it should stay. However, if it were up to me, I would remove it completely. So what is the compromise? I think having highly regulated fights would work. At the beginning, like any new rule, it would take some time to iron out the kinks, but in the long run, I feel it would work. But treat it almost like a boxing match: set the rules, play within them. The rules are there to prevent severe damage and protect the players from each other. Also, they would be written rules, not unwritten ones that are prone to error and a lot more misinterpretation. I think it is almost like legalising a drug; if there is enough demand for this drug, and it can prevent harm by legalising and regulating it, then this option should be looked at.

Ultimately, it comes down to a cultural thing. Many families want to take their kids to watch a sporting event. I don't blame them. If I had children, what better way to teach them about their country's culture than taking them to watch their national sport? It happens in football (soccer). In football, each team is heavily embedded in a city's, region's, or country's history. It is a huge factor in popular culture and teaches us about our own society.

However, there are those who believe sport should not change to indulge mainstream ideas. I'm the least to cry out "But think of the children!" But I feel when a sport seeps into all areas of our society, it needs to be regulated more in order to avoid damage, both physically and emotionally. It's similar to guns. When guns are only available to a small group, there may not be a lot of rules needed, because there are certain set norms that are followed, passed on from participant to participant. As this group becomes larger, it is harder to disseminate and cultivate this type of culture. When something that is potentially deadly becomes so widespread, we can't rely on participants to educate those accepted in this circle to educate them through word-of-mouth. There needs to be a stronger set of regulated rules; black and white, unfortunately. Because we are dealing with a larger group of people practising this sport. I apologise if you feel I am pontificating or predicating. I actually am not, but I think of the future. When I have children and want them to learn about our culture, I don't want to explain how fighting isn't allowed on the streets, but they are allowed in the rink. This obviously sounds wrong. In what other national sport is fighting allowed? Not that I feel the more popular thought is always right. But as a country, it would be wise for us not to take things for granted and be honest with ourselves.

At least regulate it. That is all I ask.

Any feedback is appreciated; whether it is to tell me I'm completely wrong or to point out some grains of truth that might be peppered accidentally throughout my dull rambling.

I went and read this ultra biased article that read like a campaign infomercial to ban fighting rather than fact.

It sources an 'online' poll which becomes impossible to verify if the respondents are adults and if some dont even like fighting , as most women do not.

Actual male hockey fans, as well as hockey players produce a 95% approval of fighting in the game. Or at least it was last time the issue came up.

They certainly didnt wait for the juiciest moment possible, replaying an almost never happens knock out over and over to milk the reaction even more.

You make good points on the ethos of having fighting in a game/sport when society typically does not condone it. And if one sticks with the tenet that sports of all kinds is a microcosm of society, then yes, fighting in hockey should probably be banned.

I'm a long time hockey fan and have been on both sides of the debate, and probably could make a strong argument for both sides. Under the current rules of NHL hockey and the culture that is embedded into the game, it would be very difficult to take fighting out, or even have fights regulated.

Fighting in hockey has gone down in the last 20 years, but during this period, the incidence of reported head injuries/concussions is up dramatically. This can be a function of greater awareness and reporting of these injuries and/or higher incidence of middleweights/light heavyweights colliding at high speeds because they feel they can do so without retribution or consequence. Though I have no empirical proof, I believe that it is a combination of the two, and feel that players' respect for each others' safety has diminished substantially, because the NHL is slowly trying to phase fighting out.

As well, though there is always exceptions to the rule, fighting in the NHL typically takes place among players within the same weight class (though the kid from Ottawa took on someone who was 45 pounds heavier, which obviously put him at a huge disadvantage). There are many unwritten rules among fighters...helmets off if visors are worn, no hitting a player when he's down or falling, holding back when opposing fighter in not able to defend himself, etc., so fighting in the NHL is already somewhat self-regulated.

Fighting has historically been in place to intimidate opposing teams and to act as a deterrent (i.e., protect). The effectiveness of having "fighters" on your roster to fulfill its purpose seems to be diminishing so now may be the time to ban it. However, before that happens, rules to ban other infractions need to be implemented because without these rules in place, we are going to see a whole bunch of other infractions intended to gain physical advantage take place. These infractions could very well be more dangerous than fighting (i.e., Kaleta's hit on Brad Richards).

So, as it is under the current rules of the NHL, I see a place for fighting in the NHL game. Should it be banned, rules (and punishment) governing other infractions need to be in place first.

To me, fighting is an all-or-none proposition...we've been witnessing a slow phase out of it over the past 10-20 years, and though we cannot say it's 100% the reason, I believe it has contributed to higher incidence of head injuries and other behaviors that show diminished respect among the players.

Edit: sorry, but in my rambling on, I failed to state a definitive position on fighting...it should remain part of the game...the instigator rule has to go.

I am 100% with Burkie's position that the rats of the game (Marchand, Bolland, Cooke, Kaleta, Carcillo and the likes) are getting away with too much. These type of players exist because they have no regard for other players' safety and need to be rag dolled every once in awhile to keep them honest. The only way to have these rats show honour is to instill some fear into them, and like it or not, fighting (minus the instigator rule) is the only way to do it.

I love a good old fashioned fight. I wish players could just go pound another player instead of having to resort to all this cheap shot nonsense. It's much better to just get your anger out in a fight, than having to use cheap tactics to gain revenge.

I heard that 2/3 of Canadians want fighting banned ( they were talking about it on Sportsnet) but I find that very hard to believe. I dont think I know 1 Canadian who is a hockey fan that wants it banned. I have a feeling that it is a biased survey done by a group that wants it banned and is targeting like minded people for their surveys.

Survey to hockey players and fans instead of 'specific samples'...you will the find the majority want fighting in the game. I've talked with maybe 6 or 7 people about fighting in hockey. Only 1 opposed to it actually played hockey.

I doubt the authenticity of this poll. All those quoted are anti-fighting people. I don't think it's a realistic survey of hockey fans. Not even the majority of those surveyed were 'self-described hockey fans', and those who were were a select sample. Sounds fishy.

Also, bodychecking out of peewee? Are you serious?

Sadly hockey fans =/= hockey knowledge. CDC is proof. I doubt most of the people polled have any general knowledge about why they fight/hit/play rough style of hockey. All they know is they don't want their precious baby being pummeled to a pulp which isn't a bad notion, but then they can always go play badminton.

I don't want fighting banned - I just want the punishment increased.

Hockey is the only non fighting sport that condones fighting.
All other non fighting sports (football, rugby, soccer, cricket, baseball, basketball, etc), the punishment for fighting is ejection from the game.
Unlike boxing or UFC for example, you don't get any points for fighting in a hockey game.

I don't care about the "it's always been there" crap. Just because it's there doesn't make it right.
"take it away and cheap shots increase" - really? Based on what? There is no evidence for that.
If fighting is part of the game, then why are there no fighting drills in any minor hockey coaches manuals?
Why don't we teach young players to fight as part of a practice?
Because fighting is not part of the game - it's part of the blood thirsty entertainment factor and some times it's just 2 players who can't control their emotions...

Fighting is a necessary part of the game, but teams are misusing it these days. It used to be that if you laid a cheap shot on a guy, you had to answer the call to their team's tough guy. Now if you lay a cheap shot on a guy, your tough guy goes and fighs their tough guy which ruins the entire purpose of fighting in the game. The more skill you have, the bigger coward to get to be.

From the articles you provided:

But 63% of self-described hockey fans oppose a ban on fighting

Support for ban on fighting is highest among older Canadians and people who don’t follow hockey



Who cares what people who don't follow the game think about it.
A significant majority of fans still want fighting in the game.

remember no one is forcing these players to fight... they want to.... no one is forcing the fans to stand up and cheer when it happens but they do because they like it. everyone got scared because of a knock out.. i loved the knock out thats the main goal in any fight to land a knock out punch. once 2 players drop their gloves to fight no one should expect anything less then what u see in boxing or MMA.. its 2 huge grown men throwing punches at eachother for millions of dollars. besides an OT goal or a shootout nothing else brings fans to their feet quicker than a good old fight!

I don't mean to be rude but whenever I see a new member make a thread like this I tend to believe that person signed up for that sole expressed purpose.

I don't know if that's true in your case but I have no doubt that survey companies hired by the NHL or other advocacy groups routinely probe sites like this to both gauge opinion and to sway it.

Just putting it out there.

I played both contact and non-contact hockey in my youth. I play beer league now. If you take contact out of younger leagues you will notice the "house hockey" symptom. Cheap shots go up. Who's gonna get upset enough to whack someone with a stick or glove when you can just give him a stiff shoulder check? also, learning how to take contact takes time. you dont wanna throw a bunch of 150 pound kids into contact hockey, someone will get hurt. Do it when they are smaller and can't do any real damage.

As far as fighting goes, it's the same thing. you take fighting out and i guarentee youl see a whole lot more slough foots and other cheap crap. Im on the fence about the instigator rule. If someone does something cheap to you, youd better be willing to back it up with a fight.

Heck ive even seen fights in my beer league (where fighting is banned) because people were being un-safe and needed to be educated with fists. you sit the rest of the game as payment for your educating.

Fighting isnt going anywhere and the sooner you expose kids to contact, the safer they will be when they get bigger and faster.

Im so sick and tired of bleading heart soccer moms trying to mess with an already neutered contact sport. Go play something else if you dont like hockey. The rest of us like a sport with some nasty.

That's more than enough of a sample size to get generally accurate data as long as the polled were truly random and not targeted.

yes but is it Canadians or Canadian Hockey fans?? The main argument is that there is no point of fighting in hockey... but really is there a point to fighting at all? I'm sorry if the sole argument is that people will get hurt and that it doesn't serve a purpose then media should be focusing on Boxing and UFC first... if there is no point to fighting in hockey there is no point to these sports either... I think the people who's opinion matter are those who actually do it for a living... would a boxer say boxing is pointless or an MMA fighter say fighting in the UFC is pointless?

They should take a poll of NHL enforcers and see what percent of them want fighting banned from hockey... or even NHL hockey players in general (this would be a lot more telling). These are the people it affects most, if they want it banned it should be... if they want it to stay again it should.

They certainly didnt wait for the juiciest moment possible, replaying an almost never happens knock out over and over to milk the reaction even more.

I fact, hockey should be banned so we could have only fights, right? I mean 95% of fans want that.

The scripted "I'm this team's tough guy and I need to fight you to stay in the lineup" fights can go for all I care, but the spontaneous fights that happen after a long hard game/series of two teams or players getting under each others skin should remain a part of hockey.

In what Crazy world are you living in that you inferred his post to mean that? :picard:

Here is a simple solution to those who don't want to see fighting in the NHL: If you are watching hockey and a fight breaks out ------ wait for it -------- DON'T WATCH.

Go to a game and watch what happens when a fight breaksout... 18,000 + fans to their feet, both teams on the benches standing and banging their sticks against the boards... every person in the building is watching that.... besides shootouts and goals (maybe big saves) I don't think there is anything else that gets everyones attention like that.
