Back in the Roman Era thousands crammed the Colosseum to watch gladiators battle it out to the end. This view is obviously still around as the media in highlights of games so fighting nearly every time they can. A prime example was the grand final show when they went through the rounds and round 25 against the Storm was highlighted with the fight. The reason they do this is because it sells and adds passion to the game. I love the softening up period in the first 20 minutes of a game but few games these days are anything to write home about. The NRL is strangling Rugby League. State of Origin was made due to the toughness associated and who doesn't love the brawls. So long as there is no foul play, bring back the biff and lets enjoy league even more. Go the Eagles, Premiers and NRL Heavyweight champions of 2011.
