I agree. Chris Childs threw the last decent punches I've seen in a b ball game

My thing is that when football players scuffle they are seen as thugs. When hockey players fight it is seen as tough.

The fans lost out lat night with all the penalties...if it was the NBA people would be chastising them for wasting the fans money to settle personal vendettas. No one is questioning the morals of the brawlers from last night.

With their hockey operations in Toronto? Makes sense.

Double edit: It was created in Montreal though.

They do. One man vs another. Everyone else stands and watches.

Andre Johnson vs Cortland Finnegan...now that was a good fight. None of that brawling non-sense with a million bodies flying around.

No one is saying its sophisticated. There is a big push trying to get rid of fighting, hence the instigator penalty. It's mostly the old timers trying to keep it alive, just like it is in the NFL when it comes to helmet to helmet hits.

When has a player from the NFL/NBA gotten jumped by a group of guys? Usually guys come in to break up fights.

Dude said they fight like gentlemen.

I see a lot of thuggish behavior....especially when they hit each other with sticks.

That is thuggish behavior that is looked down on by most hockey fans.
