This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Great recommendation by crazychester
I watched it last night. Exhaustive on the subject including a somewhat humorous exploration of "the code" that Now Hang Up touched on above. They also had a brief clip of a certain NHU relative making his feelings about the lack of enforcement in modern hockey very clear.
The doc does a good job of looking at fighting warts and all and certainly does not hide from the warts. I think it did a good job of not lionizing fighting too much, though it's pretty clear on which side of the divide they come down. I think, ultimately, they make a pretty compelling case.
