THESE GUYS HAVE BEEN GOING AT IT.. PETER TWEETED HE HAted the fighting because it made hockey more of a fringe sport and he wants the sport he loves to be more mainstream and not a tribal escape. edwards didnt take to kindly to that and went on and on in one of his usual soliloquies that he's known for. says hockey fans are the most humble and non-elitist bla bla and wanted gammo to focus more on the problems of hs own sport of baseball. also felt since he hadnt seen him at the rink, he should close his pie hole and not b yapping about it.. gammons came back and then jack went back at him.. smelling some real animosuty in there..
gams just hit too close to home for jacky boy. i largely feel the same way. interestingly in a recent poll, 35% listed nfl as their top sport, followed by baseball surprisingly at 16%, hockey was at 5%, just 1% below NBA.. not as fringy as many think it is, will never be too high but will always enjoy its niche.. great sport to watch in person, but is what it is.. its a victim of demographics.. new immigrants are coming from soccer and warm weather dominant places.. is what it is!
