One of the main reasons hockey is more violent is the rules and the way the game is played. In football tackling and the linebackers are really the only violent things really going on. In hockey we have people slamming each other into plexi glass, otherwise known as checking. Its a tactic used to separate the opponent from the puck. Along with the checking we also have guys trash talking, punching, and fighting. Ever seen a fight in the NFL? Most likeley rarely. Have you seen fights in the NHL? Yes, its pretty normal. You can have about a fight a game, if its a rival teams playing then you might see multipule. Also, in football you get kicked out for throwing a punch. Hockey its either a 2 or 5 minuet penalty, depending on the refs perspective.
