Arian Foster Says NFL Players Should Be Able To Fight Like In The NHL

by 4 years ago

Arian Foster makes no secret about his passion for the game of hockey. If you follow him on Twitter, you know this all too well.

Foster was pulling hard for the New York Rangers Wednesday night in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semi-final match-up with the Washington Capitals. Luckily for the Houston Texans running back, his team prevailed, winning in splendid fashion courtesy of a Derek Stepan sudden-death OT goal blasted by Caps’ goalie, Braden Holtby.

Throughout Game 7, Foster was adamantly sharing his pro-Ranger thoughts, and opinions on hockey in general, via the Twittersphere. None was funnier than when he insinuated that NFL players should be able to fight on the field to settle their disagreements, à la hockey players in the NHL.

Now I’m sure the PC police will be all up in arms about this. But come on, it’s pretty clear Foster was just having some fun joking around. We all know, Arian included, that the NFL is rough and savage enough as it is. Clearly he was not condoning violence on any given Sunday – given the lighthearted, fanboy nature of the rest of his hockey tweets throughout the night and Thursday morning.

It’s safe to say Arian Foster has Stanley Cup playoff fever…and the only prescription is eight more Rangers wins. Also, I’m sure Henrik Lundqvist would probably just hook him up with a jersey if he asked. No fighting involved, of course.
