    so .. in ice hockey, is fighting actually part of it.. the way the crowd cheer and commentators rate the fights and who threw the best punches and whatnot.. if so thats sick. i wanna go to a hockey match.. some decent sport plus swift jabs to faces.



    not necessarily a good fight.. but the way the commentators go on .. is it like part of the whole thing now or whaT??. do you expect to see proper one on one battles till a man drops ?

    also...

    love it tbh. not for the fighting part but for the actual game. so fast paced and so much strategy involved. best "american" sport imo.

    + womens field hockey is nice for the short skirts :D

    The aggressiveness is fine, the fighting is annoying. You get punished anyway and if your team loses because you wanted to let teeth fly - you end up being the complete and utter tit. Also - most fights are just retarded windmill shit.

    Hockey is very much a self-regulating sport. If you're going to act like a chippy little asshole on the ice, expect to come to blows with someone before the game is over and if you can't back up your shit then you'll pay for it. Like it or not, fighting is a part of professional hockey.

    This is probably my favorite fight of all time, the player who beat a spectator with his own shoe is now a hockey analyst for NESN.

    Yeah they are allowed to fight.

    When I played I would occasionally fight, if someone hit my keeper or something like that. Gotta stand up for your boys yanahmean. But yeah some people fight for the sake of it and don't play the game and they can die in a fire

    236 penalty minutes and 9 game misconducts resulted from this game tonight. A throwback to old-time hockey.

    Shit must have gone down for that to go off in a playoff game!!! Hockey is a great game, a mans game, for men!!! How you can skate so fast, handle the puck, whiel some goon is trying to launch you off your feet, and still carry on, respect!!!

    Jordin Tootoo, pitbull of a guy, on a beast of a team, Pittsburgh's squad is so sick, are they still in it?

    Yea Pittsburgh just won game 3 of the quarterfinals against the NY Islanders, so it's 2-1 going into game 4 tomorrow night. (I'm from Pittsburgh and so excited for this fucking team)

    Also, goalie fight

    That Ottawa Montreal game was incredible.

    I was supporting Montreal so not great really, and they have kind of shit the bed for the series now, given that PK Subban (their "star") will probably get a game or 2 ban for still trying to punch fuckery out of Turris while he was on the floor.


    A very beautiful young lady I know from Ottawa said that the whole city was just incredible to be in last night
