Pro

Hockey is a sport that has to much injuries like football and I believe that todays hockey is going to easy on the players and that the players are getting paid way to much for example Sidney Crosby gets 9 million dollars a year and the one year he got a concussion and he had to miss the rest of the season. While Soccer players make 40k up to 100k that is a rip off.

Con

The con recognizes that the pro reserves the right to change the the criteria of the debate as long as the pro provides them within Round 2 and no further.

My opponent's argument against hockey falls for 3 reasons:
1) He fails to prove causality. Salaries may be dependent on other factors.
2) The figures presented ("40k up to 100k") are wrong. Christiano Ronaldo was paid 15.645 million USD last year.
3) Soccer is empirically more dangerous than hockey. Forces are up to 160% greater in soccer.
