Players and league both need to wake up

Brad Patterson, Selkirk, Man.

I, like the next fan, enjoy a hard-hitting game. What I can stand are the constant scrums after the whistle.

It's completely not necessary.

Why do the players feel that they have to 'police' the game, instead of the league and the officials? You don't see this in other sports. Wake up players!

As for fighting, there is no room in the game for it. If one chooses to fight they should, at the least, be ejected. Wake up league!
