Ban fighting: even Bettman's brain worth it
NHL brains have to think about this again before too many more are concussed---it's long past time to ban fighting.
The Commissioner's office points to studies showing fights are NOT the cause of a majority of brain injuries during games. But as CJAD and Sports Illustrated's Mike Farber pointed on the Andrew Carter Morning Show, banning fights is the lowest fruit on the tree of player safety to pick.
The Leafs' Frazer McLaren landed a blow to the chin of Senator Dave Dziurzynski and the rookie could barely struggle back up to his knees.
The Battle of Ontario is the latest shot in the battle to protect the grey matter of the best hockey players in the world.
Let's hope there are enough people in the Commissioner's office and the NHLPA who can still think straight.
