Re: "Forfeit wins for hockey violence: Reader’s letter," Mar. 14:


I won’t deny that there is a lot of violence in hockey — and some of it is quite ugly and brutal.


But I think the fans have a part in this as well the players. The fans get into it — not all of them of course. I think it would be quite surprising if the players didn’t react to all the screaming and cheering that the fans do during a fight. I really think we all have a part in this.


However, hockey is great game. Don’t let the occassional fight keep you from enjoying it.
