Again, look at the aim of hockey...it's not to punch?kick/hurt someone someone.Alpe d'Huez said:Not really a fan, but have seen parts of a few events online. Don't think it should be banned. If you ban this, where do you stop? Boxing should certainly be banned as well. Probably any real hits and all fighting in hockey as well. Many of the hits in the NFL and rugby and lacross as well. The constant jarring of having your brain rattled from boxing is just as bad, if not worse than what these guys do.
I will also say the sport seems a lot more civil and controlled than it was several years ago when there were no gloves, no rounds, etc. with some guys that looked like they stepped in from a bar. That was nutso.
