Should the NHL ban hockey players who have multiple suspensions for intentional injury?
Hockey is a contact sport. We as a society can pretend that it isn’t, and we can pretend that it’s not supposed to be, but the fact is ‘Hockey is a Contact Sport.’ Other contact sports include rugby, wrestling, and boxing. I am not what you would consider a Sports fan. I suppose I don’t have the attention span for them however I definitely prefer contact sports to non-contact sports. As for the rules regarding violence in sports I like to believe that the rules and regulations regarding contact sports should be dictated by the fans. Professional Sports are a business and like any other business the fan is also the customer. The market can and always has dictated the rules and regulations regarding conduct of the participants. What the sporting world doesn’t need is people and organizations from outside of the Arena dictating the rules and regulations. I offer American Baseball as an Example. The steroid scandal has devastated the sport and the tax payers have spent millions of dollars
