Asham is a classy guy. I still love the whole fight gesture included, but really nice gesture reaching out and apologizing, which even knuble said wasn't necessary. I agree Ov is a hypocrite, but in this case he was a captain defending his teammate. I think a lot of other captains would have said the same thing, Sid included.(I know most aren't giant showboats like him but still). "kind of disrespectful" was the quote used, hardly a real shot at Asham.

I used to be a fight guy....maybe I'm getting older and my 2 daughters have made me "soft" but I wouldn't mind if they did away with fighting....

That post fight gesture was class-less by Asham....very un-penslike in my opinion...

I like fights like last night. Those have a place in the game.

The staged goon fights are the ones that need to go.

I also didn't mind Asham's gesture, but even he apologized after the game, and reached out to Beagle today. Not much more you can ask of him.
