Now I am not a fan of Hockey by any means but what I don't understand is why is fighting legal??

This just doesn't make sense to me. I know it's legal until it goes to the ground, but that seems very barbaric and not needed. The game has rules and if a rule is broken (like a guy hitting someone with the stick) and a fight breaks out, that is understandable, but what the hell is the reason for fighting being legal?

The NFL might as well let the football players go at it, hell why not have B Ball throwdowns, I would love to see Shack vs Kobe lol.

I'm not a hockey expert. But i've been a fan for many years, especially after the LA Kings with the "Great One" made it to the Finals in 93.

But there is a long-standing tradition of fighting in hockey. Fighting offers the players to police themselves. If an opposing player throws a dirty body check on your best player, that may be grounds for a fight. In the playoffs, it is unlikely to see teams fight, usually only in the 1st game. Also, fighting on ice offers only arm punches, to balance and cause a season ending injury is unlikely. Remember they have fiberglass sticks, better two guys slug it out for a few seconds than whack each others heads off. I am sure there are a lot of other valid reasons why NHL allows fighting, but as I regress I have never seen a hockey fight in Olympic play. But the ice surface is bigger and you usually only play a team once or twice.


Like in a lot of sports, intimidation is a big part of it.
NBA is a bunch of primadonnas, always wanting a foul. I used to like basketball. They don't fight, they flagrant foul and chance ending careers, or a teams hope for championship. ala Horry's forearm shiver on Nash. Now thats ugly.

The NFL is a whole different creature. The game is founded on being physical, it doesnt take a fight to hurt someone.

I may be wrong but thats the way I see it, I'm open to discussion/persuasion.

If NFL players had sticks I'm sure fights would break out. Stick swinging is much worse than fighting. If you take fighting out of hockey you're going to see a lot of stick work. If you watch European hockey or even College hockey, there's a lot of stick work.

The reason there's no fighting in Olympic Hockey is it's governed by IIHF which has a no fighting rule, but you also have the best plyaers in the world playing in the Olympics so why would they fight?

I play lacrosse which allows fighting, and its much better than swinging for a guys head with a stick.

How is is barbaric? We are all (or at least we should be) mma fans and Harlem, I know you're a big boxing fan, so how is this barbaric?

When fighters fight, it's over, they act like men and get on with it. It settles issues. It lets player know that they were out of line or if they have something against each other, they can fight each other. Fighting each other is a much better alternative than, throwing a baseball at another guy's head and have the dugouts cleared and all of them act like a bunch of bitchy women. It's better than a player sttomping their cleets on a downed opponent. It's better than racecar drivers trying to make his fellow driver crash and possibly kill him.

Harlem, I don't know if you meant to insult Hockey and its tradition, but if you're not a fan, then try to understand it, before calling it barbaric.

Honestly, I don't understand it much. I'm not trying to bash it, and didn't say anything disrespectful, but I didn't understand the need for fighting. As someone else has said though, if it keeps people from swinging for the fences with a stick at someones head I guess it's the better of both evils.

I personally would rather someone not take a swing at me for checking them too hard as I would find it very hard to forgive and wouldnt want to stop until I got a really good hit in any way possible so they understand not to ever do it again.

I just think a sport should be more about the skill and fighting is not sportsmanship. Unless it's prize fighting.

I hear ya Harlem.

But I disagree with your last comment.

"I just think a sport should be more about the skill and fighting is not sportsmanship."

There is a lot of skill, and even after a hockey fight there is sportsmanship. Its not like the big enforcer guy is fighting one of the weaker players on the opposing team. They jaw-jack, square off, drop the gloves, and in some cases even take off their helmets as to not injure their fists, a mutual sign of respect, then go at it.

I also want to add in that hockey is not as dirty as many other sports. When someone hits someone on the haed with a stick (Mcsorely hitting Brashear), it's not tolerated, the player gets suspended. If a player sucker punches another player from behind (Bertuzzi on Steve Moore), then that is not tolerated either and they will be suspended and cats with a dark shadow for the rest of their careers.

It's not like a player gets in a fight everytime he checks someone. If a player who got checked and starts a fight, then that player will instantly get 2 extra penalty minutes and possibly more. Hockey players have a lot of pride and almost always will not fight a guy much smaller than themselves because it makes them look like pussies. Trust me, if you watched it regularly, you'd see a pattern of why they fight and that there is reason for it.

here's my input on NHL and fighting.

playing ice hockey is not easy, and the competition is intense. why do most hockey games end up with only 1 or 2 goals scored. it's not easy to win, and when checking gets out of hand, a fight results. it's part of the game. if the same player checked me numerous times, i would definitley drop the gloves and fight.

I am not defending Bertuzzi for what he did, cause it was wrong......BUT, most people forget, the game before that when Vancouver and Colorado played, Moore took a cheap shot at Markus Naslund (Vancouver's best player) and took him out, I think Naslund missed 3 or 4 games because of Moore's cheap shot.
And there is a code in the NHL that says you take out a teams best player, the next time you play that team, you man-up, take the consequences and fight the teams enforcer...........Bertuzzi, was trying to get at Moore all game, and Moore played the role of pussy and neglected to Man-up, and he ran from Bertuzzi all game........finally Bertuzzi had the chance, face to face, and Moore still wouldn't drop the gloves, and Bertuzzi suckered him.
Let's not forget, that the broken neck may very well have happened from the 4 Avalanche players who jumped onto Bertuzzi and all of them onto Moore's back/neck,.

Actually fighting, like tripping, or elbowing, etc.. is illegal....fighting earns you a minimum of a 5 minute penalty.

Like others have said, it is a way for the players to police themselves. Steve Yzerman rarely got touched when Bob Probert was a red wing...why, because Probie would pound anyone who did.
When you have guys like Ulf Samuelsson, Fetisov, Marchment, Claude Lemieux, steve Avery etc........around, who will stop at nothing to attempt to injure other players, if you took the fighting out of the game, these, aforementioned pussies would reek havoc.........sticks would be carried up around the heads and there would certainly be more serious injuries than there is.

yea i remember what Moore did to Naslund. Naslund was bleeding on the ice, but no one was expecting a payback from Bertuzzi. You make a clear point about Bertuzzi's situation. i've always liked him as a player regardless of the incident, but looked real painful when Moore's face was just sliding down the ice with all those people on him.

i think the NHL needs more players like Lidstrom. humble with sick skills.

Was Moore being a pussy because he didn't want to fight, well kind of. He knew he would have got his ass kicked. I'm not a big guy, myself though, but I would fight anybody and I've never lost a fight.

The people who say Moore took a cheap shot are simply put: wrong. Naslund didn't see the hit coming, but Naslund had the puck. There was not 4 avalanche palyers who jumped on him, just Andrei Nikolishin and two Vancouver Canucks.

Couple of my favorite hockey fight highlights... Anything with Joey Kocur, that man put people to sleep on hockey skates... and him and Bob Probert were nothing to be fucked with (they actually fought each other later on in their careers, rep if someone can give me a feed of that fight).

Best payback fight (going with the Bertuzzi/Naslund/Moore theme) is after Claude Lemiuex cheap shot Chris Draper causing terrible facial laserations, Darren McCarty beat the piss out of him. Lemiuex started to fight, but was getting fucked up so he turtled up... this is the only time i've seen a hockey player punching a turtled up fighter but Claude deserved it because he's a superprick. Also when Mike Vernon/Cris Osgood fought Patrick Roy (sorry God), for being much smaller than Roy both men did more than hold their own. Goalie fights are funny to watch.

Fights have got to be in hockey so people don't get carried away with their 5 foot stick, or razorsharp skates... it's a way to relieve all the tension that gets built up, and they handle it like men.

Sorry God, but Osgood clearly won that fight with Roy.
Moore gave Naslund a nice lunging elbow to the head to start that whole rivalry.

Darren McCarty beating up Claude Lemieux made me an instant fan of McCarty.......that little rat Lemieux ranks right up there with Ulffy boy Samuelsson for the biggest cheap shot artists of our generation.
McCarty actually throws some knees to Lemieux in that fight too.

I'm a Canucks fan but Bertuzzi had no right for the sucker punch. People forget that Vancouver and Colorado played a game between the Moore hit and the sucker punch. Vancouver was losing like 6-1 or somethign rediculous when Bertuzzi snapped. Also, people forget that Steve Moore fought Matt Cooke earlier in the game and that should have been it. Bertuzz is a dick. Also, if Moore's neck didn't break we wouldn't even remember the situation.

As for the suspensions for dirty play. You know, the NHL is very inconsistant when it comes to suspending players. Look at the Pronger hit a couple nights ago, that was as bad as the Bertuzzi's hit but it didnt' break the guys neck.

Back to fighting. Take fighting out of the game you're going to see more pussy players run around like an idiot and get away with cheap shit. ala Jarko Ruutu, SHawn Avery, Mathiew Barnaby and countless other chicken shits. If you cheap shit somebody in hockey, be prepared to defend your actions by dropping the gloves. Take figthing out there's no deterant.

The NFL is protecting quarterbacks nowadas by awarding a 15 yard penalty if you touch him after he throws the ball. If there was no penalty guys would take liberties on the quarter back and fights would break out all the time by the teams defending hitting their star players.

Back to they Olympics comment, there's no need to fight as you're the best players in the world playing for an Olympic Gold Medal. How many chances do you get an Olympic gold? Why risk putting your team short handed by fighting?

Now, now Mr. God... you know Ozzy won that fight, he was gettin position to work some GnP at the end too for the TKO. The Vernon fight I was kinda joking even though he more than held his own. I like how Roy is like 6'3 and Vernon, Ozzy, & Hasek are all about 5'9 but Roy calls them all out and then has his hands full. I don't recall him fighting any of the other large goalies, but I haven't watched a shitload of his games to be honest (I hate the Avs). He's a great goalie, not a great fighter.

Who you guys got as a star of a team that's an underrated fighter? My pick Brendan Shanahan, hell of a scorer but not a man you'd want to fight with at all.. but he's not really considered a tough guy.

MetalHead, I threw up a little bit when my Wings signed that goon Bertuzzi. I know he's the power forward they thought they needed (Holmstrom, & Franzen say otherwise) but I hate seeing his ass in a Wings jersey when I watch their games... I still hate him, this is a first for me and a Wings player.

As for Moore already fighting Matt Cooke...true, but Moore started all this with his cheap shot on Naslund..I'm sorry, but Moore doesn't get to choose who he fights, he can't go out and fight a below average fighter, and think he has payed his dues, sorry the code of the NHL doesn't work like that. You man up fight who the other team says you fight, take your punishment and move on.....Moore didn't do that. Now, having said that, i will say again, I am not condoneing what Bertuzzi did, cause it was wrong.

No, he did pay his dues. He manned up and fought like a man. Cooke challenege him, he accepted it's over. Dont' forget when he did hit Naslund there was a mayley after.

I seirously can't believe people are still saying it's Moore's fault. He honoured the code of hockey by fighting. Getting suckered by a bully isn't part of the code. Why should an average sized player have to fight a 6"3'' 250 pounder? Fighting a below average fighter, of course, Moore isnt' a fighter either. I can't believe in the talk shows around Vancouver, whenever this topic is brought up people still defend Bertuzzi and make Moore the bad guy. Like you.

I have a ton of memories of different fights that have happened over the years in hockey. If you understand hockey fighting then it is not that brutal/the most memorable fights are usually funny, such as goalie fights.

My absolute favourite is from 1988 when the entire Soviet and Canadian junior teams fought on the ice. At one point they turned out the lights to try and stop the fighting. Check it out:
