Get rid of the goons in hockey
Couldn't the NHL make one itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny concession to law and order, though? Get rid of the goons -- those guys who aren't very good players at all, but who are assigned a place on the team only to attack good players. Everybody knows who they are. They could be outlawed as sure as baseball eliminated spitball pitchers. Then, if you got rid of the goons and a few fights between normal players broke out spontaneously, people like me could enjoy a fight with a clean conscience. Well, all right, just a slightly smudged conscience.
