Read that last night when @MEHockeyJournal tweeted the link. I just shrugged and closed the tab.

Quote:
At 16:24 of the first period, things got chippy between the teams, and the brawl that broke out saw three fights and four ejections. This was apparently a little too much for some parents in the crowd.

According to the Portland Press Herald, one parent was "horrified" by the fisticuffs. A woman there with her grandson was "outraged" by what she saw. There also seemed to be a bit of a misunderstanding over whether Pirates and Sharks players were given a warning before the game.




Quote:
Peter Mortenson, principal of Lake Region Middle School, which sent 225 students to the game as a reward "for their civil behavior in the building," said he was told the players were told that "the normal aggressive behavior is not acceptable."
o the irony.

The only thing Joshua loves more about fighting in hockey is that he knows it's bad and laughs and yells at the players as they shuffle off to the penalty boxes (he used to call it Hockey Time Out hah!).

It's the parent's fault. Do your fucking homework before taking them somewhere. The sport wont change because your children are panzies.

In all seriousness, I taught him at one of his first games that fighting in hockey, like in real life, is against the rules but sometimes it's necessary. I reinforce it every time we go to a game.

True enough. Other than the (hopefully previous) lack of serious repercussions for blatant dirty shots, hockey provides great teachable moments. It's against the rules, but sometimes necessary, so there are consequences, but sometimes the players know they have to do it anyway and then accept those consequences. Cause and effect. Choice and consequence. Don't sugar coat it.
