People can be ignorant, yes. Also double standards can exist especially when comparing apples to oranges, so suck it up put on your big boy pants and get used to it.

you are right.. people need to put their "big boy pants" on.. it shouldn't bug people for me to point out the double standard..

it is obvious..we should be able to admit it and move on

Nah.. as has been explained a million times, there is an ettiquette to hockey fighting based on mutual agreement. Basketball is often one guy lashing out at another and then everything goes to shit and its a gang fight essentially. Now that is thuggery.. uncontrolled violence that serves no purpose.

I just don't think it is some big racial/social issue that some of you are trying to make it out to be. It's simply a different sport so a different animal. Ignorant assertions can be made about anything, and they can go either way. It just so happens that in this example basketball, and football are more heavily covered by the media so negative comments are more likely to be voiced and heard.

I wanna know why in golf, fans have to be quiet when players are putting and driving, but in basketball people can scream, blow horns, and wave hands when players are shooting a free throw? I smell double standard.

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?
