OHL to ban checking for 20-21
« on: Friday October 30, 2020, 10:38:46 PM Eastern »
The OHL announced today that if they return for this upcoming season that their will be no body checking :huh:
What's the point in even playing if that's the case?

Might as well play soccer or basketball if they're avoiding rough stuff.

sounds like a well thought out decision based on science and medicine ...

maybe they should redesign the lockerrrooms too, make them 35 individual ones with their own shower and washing machine. It makes just as much sense

Good Lord.  If you want to ban checking...then ban checking.  Don't use Covid as an excuse.  You telling me that 15-20 guys who spend 75% of their waking time in close quarters sharing the same space, locker room, showers, benches, water bottles, buses, etc....are going to NOT get Covid because they are not bumping into each other on the ice?


 :huh: 8-0
