    I have umpired baseball to the level of MLB spring Training and PAC-10 (now PAC-12) and done small college basketball and played collegiate LaCrosse. I would have been a NCAA fooball ref if I Hadn't had to give it up to take care of my young daughters. Three of those are as violent as Hockey but have nowhere near the level of fighting. I knew a NHL ref who said something to the tune of "It's a violent sport. You have to let the players fight sometimes" BS. There is fighting because the league knows that while it is not the primary reason fans come in, they really enjoy the fights.
