(INTRODUCTION)


Man, it has been a long time since my last debate, but I was ready to debate again, so good timing on your part, 1AW8.


Anyways, since you provided no arguments and no structure, I will just do a few arguments this round.


On to debating!


(ARGUMENTS)


(1)


Imagine that you were playing hockey, and you were skating up with the puck, when you get hit. Hard. You black out and wake up in the hospital, your career in Hockey over.


The point I am making is that hockey is way too physical, which leads to many injuries. You are allowed to aggressively shove, slash and hit people in hockey with little to no penalty. You can get into a fight where you are only broken up after the fight occurs. Injuries come. A lot.


I will post a few videos in this argument, so if you are squirmish, maybe don’t watch them.

This first video shows a hit from Boston Bruins forward Zdeno Chara on Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens. Pacioretty goes down, In a lot of pain, with a concussion.

This second one shows one of the all-time best hockey players get a concussion, which turned out to affect crosby for over half of a year {1}


Last, but most likely the worst, was this:

Imagine you are Steve Moore. He was your average hockey player. Then, one game, against Vancouver, his whole career ended. Todd Bertuzzi comes up to him and wants a fight. Steve Moore says no. A few minutes later, Bertuzzi comes up to Moore, grabs his jersey, viciously punches Moore in the face then shoves onto the cold, hard ice. As a result, Moore was knocked out cold for around 11 minutes. He got three fractured vertebrae and a very major concussion. His passion, career, and love for hockey was done. Over. This is all a result of the violent nature of hockey.



Now this is just concussions/injuries from hits/on ice not fight stuff, but what about from fights?

In this video you will see he gets into a


Soccer is not nearly as brutal as Hockey, while yes, I will not deny that there are injuries in Soccer, the severity of injuries and the amount of injuries are much higher in Hockey.


Thanks
