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?

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...
