  2. How can American TV get any stupider?

    I ask? HOW IN THE WORLD!
  3. stupid.

    quickest way to get fighting out of hockey: give all rinks olympic sized ice. gaurenteed to bring speed, finesse, passing, and skill back into the game.

    I think it's a GREAT idea, actually. I want soccer hooligan fights too. No games, just an arena of 30,000 people raging pissed and armed with lead pipes.

    This isn't a bad thing, this here is the best possible evolution of the sport!

    ...this of course, coming from the man who wants trebuchet football: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=82748 (near the bottom of the page)
  5. In a way that sounds kind of interesting...I'd watch it.

    Sports fights are good things. If you don't want to see them, don't go to/watch games. Simple as that.

    Besides, if we regulate it too much, these guys will just beat eachother up outside the rink.

    As a real idea... it's probably the stupidest thing ever and it makes me ashamed to be human. American Idol does that too.

    But the lead pipe thing isn't such a bad idea, because then it's a way to eliminate the stupid humans. ;)

    i say they take off their skates and try to stab each other.
  9. Death match on ice.... sounds like a good idea to me! I mean, they've got a bunch of ice right there, so how's that bad? :D

    Except, this isn't a sport, it's just hockey-style fighting. Question: Why doesn't anyone promote a frickin' hug-fest, or a love-in? Answer: Because people are so damned starved for violence, blood, sex and debauchery, no one would want to watch people being nice to each other. If it's someone getting their ass kicked, or getting their ****ing head sawed off, we can't wait to get an eyeful.

    No offense or anything kserg, but I have trouble reading your posts because of the way they're set up, so I usually don't. Would you mind working on grammer/sentence structure so they'd be easier to read for everybody?
