A recent conversation amongst friends sparked my memory of the below video, which you’ve probably seen a hundred times before. After each of those hundred viewings, you and pretty much everyone you know undoubtedly remarked that if this happened today, in the NBA, the players would be arrested, the teams would fold, the league would be shut down, David Stern would be murdered with a pitchfork, there would be a second Civil War, and all the while hockey fans would be walking the now-riotous streets teeming with anarchy, dodging airborne molotov cocktails, yelling to the battling masses that the two sports are different, fighting in hockey has always been part of the game, what are you looking at you got something to say bring it seriously why don’t you come over here and say that to my face.
