Is anyone else upset with the Vail Daily’s front-page photo last Saturday? It shows one hockey player on hands and knees. Another is assaulting him with a bare fist.
The caption reads, “A small squabble.” It has the makings of an illegal act, if it occurred anywhere else but our Dobson Arena. Even then, it tests the NHL’s “fighting rule” 46 (which is like trying to manage a barroom brawl with Robert’s Rules of Order).
What does this say about us? What does it say to our youth?
Do I overreact? Maybe. But take a good hard look at that photo.
I’m just saying.
