Wow! Those guys were so upset you would have thought someone must have lightly tapped a puck into an empty net after a soft whistle.

Those unwritten rules sure can cause a ruckus 🤣

I wish the SPHL still had interesting hockey games like this.  Sanitized hockey by mediocre players in a league that believes it is developmental in nature is really not interesting.  I think I would prefer to watch the Fed at this point.

There have been occasional bench brawls in the SPHL. And good luck watching the Fed at this point!

Enjoy that. We'll miss your witty banter.

I know the talent is worse, especially defensively; but why do you think their overall product is distinctly worse?  I think as a product at this level, they offer better entertainment.

1. Contradiction in your own sentence- "talent is worse"- then how can the product be better?

2. At this time of COVID-19 they don't.

It ain't just about talent, Perfesser.  Charm brings a lot to every experience.

Physicality and emotional hockey make a better product despite lesser actual hockey skill.  The lower the level of hockey, the more elements of good vs. evil are needed for entertainment(somewhat of a pro wrestling mentality).  The FPHL seems to have more of that than the SPHL.  The SPHL has begun taking itself way too seriously.

How about this version?

Well, I was not familiar with them until now. But,I will stay with my choice due to the pro wrestling mentality mentioned above. Plus while they are old men now, they are still living. I am not sure about all the wrestlers who were members but, the original four are.

Can we skip right to Tribulation, Heavenly Signs & the Seven Trumpets and get this social distancing behind us?  😇

NO, NO, A THOUSAND TIMES NO!!! We might be able to postpone the "Tribulations, Heavenly Signs & the Seven Trumpets", but look at what's happened in Hong Kong- a reduction in COVID-19 infections because of the lock-down, then "social distancing" policy relaxed, and now a resurgence on COVID-19 cases. Hard economic times are upon us (I'm a doctor, not an economist, Jim!) but we've got to get this pandemic under control first. Doc
