Nothing to offer. Nothing to pass positively except talking nonsense. 

I knew people similar to the above poster.

In my estimation, some of them were the ones, in the Soviet system, which would report you as soon as you had any capitalistic ideas.

Why? Jealousy. 

---> Now I am going back on topic or else mediocrity might take me in. 

Here are 3 arguments pro and against. 

Is hockey a gladiator sport?

YES: 

  1. Physicality
  2. Entertainment
  3. Risk of injury

NO:

  1. Lots of Regulations.  Gladiators, on the other hand, were forced to fight for their lives in an arena without such regulations.
  2. More Strategy
  3. Same as rules or regulations, but the sport is Non-lethal. The gladiators' battle was mostly lethal. 

If you mean me, you're off topic. Anyone off topic is subject to moderation by other forum members. A kind of Citizens self-moderation rule is in effect.

Therefore you should stfu, and stay on topic. Don't talk about me, as all it does is expose you for having a puny, puny intellect. Which we already knew anyway.

A few weeks ago, Adam Johnson, a hockey player in Britain, died after being struck by a skate. In what is I think a surprising development, the player that did it has just been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter:
