While on a stroll in downtown Toronto yesterday, Linesman reporter Elizabeth Oak asked 100 dogs if they believed fighting has a place in the NHL. Only 5 dogs felt fighting should be removed. After all, 98% of current NHL players believe fighting is necessary.
"Woof!" said Bugsy the pug, in complete agreement with fighting.
The wise golden retriever, Rex, had a different opinion though.
"Fighting wastes time, unnecessary injuries happen," said Rex. The owner of the dog, Jeffrey Sanders, (who was completely drunk at the time) disagreed with his dog.
So there you have it. 95% of dogs agree: fighting serves a great purpose in the NHL.
