    Tampa Bay assistant: Bruins fans come for the fight and the hockey game is 2ndary

    Tampa Bay assistant coach was quoted saying that the Bruins fans come to the hockey game to see fights and the hockey game is secondary.

    I'm ok with fighting in hockey but that doesn't mean I'm disappointed if there isn't a fight.

    What do you think?

    I honestly think he may of mispoke and then the quote has run away from him.

    He would have been better off saying "Boston fans really get into when the rough stuff starts" which is what I think was the jist of his comment. But he dropped that stupid line.

    I say next time the B's play TB in BOS teh Garden gives out free foam boxing gloves to all the fans!

    He should talk with a team that has cheap shot artists like Downie and Jones.

    I can't answer your survey.  You should edit  and add another option.

    3- fighting is part of hockey therefore both.

    I'm with BsLegion, I love watching hockey and fighting is part of the game - so I assumed that fighting was included in the hockey option which was where my vote was cast.

    I like to see a physical, comptetive game...if a spontaneous fight happens that's one thing, but I hate staged dances. So, based on the choices, I did not make a selection.
    Sorry,
    Doc

    At least the Bruins have fans unlike TB who can barely fill their rink on most nights.....

    Hating on B's fans because your team was physically outplayed? No class. Should be fined and send the donation to March of Dimes.

    Not to mention the "distinct kicking motion" from St. Louis towards Recchi.  Cry babies.

    I kept it to fighting and hockey to make people choose why they go to the games. Is it for fighting or hockey.

    If I added hockey with the possbility of fights, that option would have been a land slide winner given the fans I know on this board and Boston in general love fighting in hockey. 

    When is the last time someone saw a diving call in an NHL game?

    nrguy,

    I enjoy a good tilt as well but its not why I pay the money. Its almost like getting a free desert with the meal. 
    I like watching teams that know how to play the game.  Detroit is masterful as is Vancouver.

    If my new defensive stud acquisition got his head handed to him like that, I'd probably say stupid things also.

    There is a time and a place for it, but I am of the same school as NAS - I don't want to see staged fights and think we should get rid of the "enforcers" that can't play hockey. i.e. Gillies

    I agree with getting rid of the cavemen with sticks.  Problem is some of these guys turn into decent players.  You can pretty much point out the obvious ones
    Boogieman-Scott-Parros-Shelley.

    But then a guy like Cartner and Prust come up and you gotta think twice.  Cartner isnt bad.  Prust is playing great.  Both known for fists and it is why they are in the league.

    It will never happen until fighting is completely gone.
