Hockey hypocrisy

The London Free Press - - LETTERS -

Bravo robert Kent for his let­ter Why do we glo­rify box­ing? (Dec. 4).

I con­cur with his view but ex­tend it fur­ther to in­clude our na­tional win­ter sport. At least box­ing is above board. What you see is what you get. the hypocrisy of hockey man­age­ment and its rule-mak­ers is bla­tantly ob­vi­ous when­ever a fight breaks out.

At Bud­weiser Gar­dens, mu­sic is played to ac­com­pany these stupid mo­ments, en­hanced by the cheers of the crowd, in­clud­ing par­ents with chil­dren.

so long as this is pro­moted, we will, as a so­ci­ety, con­tinue to lose the bat­tle against bul­lies and vi­o­lence. Walt Cher­waty Lon­don
