I still remember

I was probably 12 or 13.

We were at one of the stables

and there was a couple guys.

It was like "Oh, what are you gonna do?

You gonna be a vet like your dad?"

Y'know, being a 13 year old

and still a dreamer,

I was like "No, I'm gonna

play in the NHL."

Saturday night, you sit around, and...

if you're not playin' in a tournament,

you're usually watchin' it on TV.

We saw how good these guys played

and how hard they worked

and how tough they were.

We wanted to be like them.

It's all you think about your whole life

is playin' in the NHL.

There was a point

that I realized that

my skillset that I had...

It was only gonna take me so far.

Every league I went into,

I was always a little bit slower

than most players

and I had to establish

myself in some way

to stick in the league.

It was just one of those things where...

you just, kept wanting

to prove whoever wrong

that kept saying that, y'know,

you're not gonna make it.

Eventually, y'know, their skill level

and everything else levels off

and all of a sudden you grow

and your abilities change.

I could just kinda feel like...

guys lookin' outta

the corner of their eye

to like, see what I was gonna do.

Then I finally looked in the mirror

and I was like, God it's me.

It's, it's my role.

Whoa oh-oh-oh-oh! Whoa oh-oh-oh-oh!

I'm not looking for a fight

If you come at me tonight

I'm gonna make-a you sorry!

Don't try my patience, son

There's a reason I'm the one,

People stand aside for

Just play the game you know,

And we won't go toe-to-toe

Tomorrow you'll feel better

You know this ain't a road

For you to freely go,

This is a dead end!

And on it goes

Someone begs for a broken nose

Under the lights, my justice reigns

Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

Crossing my line, will put you in pain

Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

You'll be praying to God,

When will it end?

Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

This is not a fight you can win

here, my friend!

Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

Oh yeah!



Good evening and thanks for joining us.

It is one of the most disgusting

brutal parts of NHL hockey

and last night, Canadians

watched it all happen yet again.

They are the most feared

players in the NHL

whose role isn't scoring goals,

it's - knocking out the opponent.

They're enforcers.

Scouted, drafted and put

on the ice for one thing...

To fight.

What do you think of

fighting in professional hockey?

It's got its place. I mean...

Hell, two thirds of the people in here,

that's probably all they're looking for.

What do you think of

fighting in professional hockey?

There isn't enough of it.

I don't think it's a problem.

It's just...

they shouldn't fight so hard.

We're not talkin' about MMA,

we're talkin' about hockey.

"What do I think of fighting

in professional hockey?"

I think it's part of the sport.

I do not like it at all,

to be honest with you.

In any sport, especially

professional athletes,

it just is not professional.

It's immature and not necessary.

It stops the flow of the game.


You're a fan of it?


It's fun.

Gets the fans goin', right?

I love it.

It's why I come for the entertainment.

I think it makes the game

more interesting actually.

I still think it plays

a role in the game.

So is there something about hockey

that really lends itself to violence?

Intellectually, it doesn't make sense.

You're trying to

take a round black thing

and put it over a red line.

That's the game!

And whoever does it the

most times, that wins.

Where does the fight come from?

Why does this not happen in football?
