    So now the handwringing ninnies want to stop hockey players from fighting? That’s at least half of why anyone watches hockey in the first place! I’m getting really tired of the pussification of our entire culture. Some needs to just go and beat the shit out of everybody – for the good of our civilization.

    I know the NHL was pushing “European-style” hockey, with more flashy bladework and less brawling, for a while, but I gather that petered out and now we’re back to the normal (violent) state of affairs. I’m not a hockey fan myself, but it sure seems to me that most of the agitation to stop the fighting isn’t coming from the fans but the press. And you know what we think of the press around here. 😉

    “European style” – anything with that label instantly translates to “sucks”, health care, immigration, economics, you name it.  The only thing we ever got of any value from Europe is the LEGAL immigrants who came here to escape European bullshittery, and the tasty foods and beers that they brought with them.
