i donīt understand the problem here........football and hockey are contact sports, no wonder players get mad and wanna fight...........baseball and basketball are non contact sports, no reason to fight and go around looking all bad and mean.......if you really are that tough, pick boxing as your sport.

here's the only response you'll get "when white guys do it their tough guys, when black people do it they're thugs" i wonder why nick young hit 2 white guys when there were 2 black guys getting in his face?

The answer is that they're on skates. The potential for serious damage (bertuzzi cheap shots notwithstanding) is much, much less than two people squaring off on flat footing.

That's all it is. Has nothing to do with race. If white people had a problem with watching blacks fight, there'd be no floyd mayweather or jon jones. The issue is untrained, unequipped guys just throwing haymakers on a basketball court has potential to cause the kind of harm people don't want their kids to see, i.e. a Rudy T moment. On skates, it's mostly just cuts and bruises.

Y'all need not discuss things you have no idea about.

Of course a basketball forum wouldn't think highly of hockey, being that their seasons overlap and have the same format (except for the stupid 2-3-2 format the NBA had for the Finals)

I think it's crazy that baseball brawls are pretty much excepted. Those get pretty wild and it's the whole ****ing team that storms the field.

That's why I said HAD

About time they changed. NBA fixed the dumb sh!t for the Gold Ball



Hockey is the greatest sport in existence, granted its accesible,understood and people aren't turned off by all required materials and the general homogenous nature (skin color, not nationality) of its participants.

Theyre not really accepted, not by the league anyhow. Dudes get suspended for participating in brawls. At least Im pretty sure they do.

Or maybe, just maybe, its as simple as 6'8 dudes pack such a heavier punch than the average 5'10 to 6'1 sized guys in other sports that its wise to not allow them to potentially KO a fool and wreck his career.

Its not like you can punch a guy as hard on skates like you can on an NBA court. Even baseball fights tend to end in a tackle in the dirt more than anything.

Hell, I once saw Shaq take a swing at Brad Miller after he had turned his head and started walking the other way. Had Shaq connected it probably would have killed Miller.


This... at the end of the day you don't have multiple guys in play who are pushing 6'8", 6'10", 7' weighing 250+ lbs... lot different than your average hockey player who is ~6', or even NFL who is ~6'3" on average.

Put Gortat, Pekovic, Nene, Valanciunas, Cousins, and Dwight in the Hockey rink or on a baseball field and you wouldn't be allowed to fight there either...

Your kidding right?
Have you heard of John Scott? Zdeno Chara? Dustin Byfuglien? Brian McGratten? All those guys would murder any of the guys mentioned above. And there are a lot more

Probably the number one untouchable guy. I've heard stories about players hitting him hard and then getting destroyed moments later by an Oilers/Kings enforcer. I'm going to go watch some youtube of him now.
