I assume you and Levi will be as strong in your anti-violence campaign when you see football players hit after the whistle and hockey players drop gloves and fight. I mean, those things have actually caused real injuries as opposed to the dreaded baseball HBP.
I think the "let the players police themselves" nonsense is stupid regardless of sport. It does nothing to cut down buffoonery or disrespect and only indulges the worst offenders. So that goes for hockey fighting or targeting players for sure. It does not, however, count normal physical play that extends beyond whistles in football or hockey.
Those sports are very different from baseball and those actions are penalized when they go beyond typical physicality. When those sports indulge in similar behavior (bounties on injuries, fighting, etc) as baseball does I'm 100% consistent in my dislike.
I assume you are then cheering the goons of the sports world as you are here?
