Pants and Roxanne sat down to discuss their thoughts about fighting in hockey.

Pants: You have to protect your stars and I believe the game should be policed by the players and not the referees. And you know what? Damnit, I’m a man. I like violence, I like carnage, I like blood.

Roxanne: Okay, Pants. We get it. You’re a manly man. But how about just watch Game of Thrones if you want all of that. (Woo hoo! Season 3 this Spring.) Can we not be just a tad more civilized in sports? In 2013, we are fully aware of the dangerous and long-term effects of concussions. Hockey is dangerous, as it is. We can remove that one dangerous element from the game, and it’s not like it will water down the product. Hockey is about speed and skill, right? And besides, we know many of the fights are staged.

Well Pants and Roxanne disagree. What do you think? Vote below and tell us!
