I’m wheeling through Twitter yesterday and I see this.
Buddy, are you shittin’ me? How in the world did we let this happen? At some point, some nerd got to the point where he or she can make rules like this and it is collectively all of our faults for allowing this. Big hits, big goals, big moments, are always surrounded by banging on the boards, it’s the ying to its yang. I’m sure parents are happy that their children won’t be breaking their $300 sticks as easily but when will this stop? Will USA hockey ban chirping? Will they not allow you to say anything to the opponent that will get them off their game? If you ban board banging how is myself telling a team full of swamp donkeys that they’re about to be tea bagged any better? What a crazy, crazy world we live in.
