hockey may have an easier time ridding itself of needless head-injuries, because the object of the game isn't to hit a player hard-enough to drop him to the ground (if the drunken Canucks who run the NHL just enforce existing rules, with stiff penalties)
the die-hards may not like this, but the first thing hockey needs to do is ban fighting.
I've never understood this one.....you can't walk down the street and fight..or do it in the stands...or outside...or at home...or, well, anywhere. It's assault and battery and you'd be arrested in 2 seconds flat. So why is it allowed on the ice??? Mindboggling.
That will be the first thing they'll do....we'll see that happen in the next couple
