There may be some but I disagree with the term inherent,
plus the violence is nothing compared with the violence of soccer fans.

Here is what some consider to be the greatest game ever played.

I detest soccer anyway, but think that soccer matches should be attended by home fans only (as it was in the old days). End of problem.
And you can only get in with a season ticket (plus a guest, if you have one, who is then your responsibility)
Ticket easily revoked.

Ian2 Sorry you are going to miss your sport but the Greatest game ever ? :) I find it only just slightly less boring than Basketball. But each to there own and it is just a personal opinion. I like F1 & Nascar my brother can't stand them but likes Motor Bike racing so there you go.

Incidentally if Ice Hockey not violent, why the need for a Sin Bin LOL

Sports fans all have there favourite sport, and then some people do not like sports at all ,
but they were probably victims of poor parenting. ;)

Ted: I obviously meant the greatest hockey game ever.

@ian2, From Pittsburgh Pa. area. We usually have a pretty good team but, I don't watch much. Too many games just like baseball and basketball, season is too long anyway. Today will be watching NASCAR and Steelers football.
