Nothing else to say besides the picture, but I'm not smart enough to leave it at that, so I'll add this.
Meaning is subjective. I assign little meaning to the staged fight ending in hugs, and more to fights that result from bad blood and rivalries. You disagreed with my opinion and assigned more meaning to the fight ending with the hug. No use arguing about what does and doesn't have more meaning when it's so subjective.
Did I really need to post all that?
No, no you're right! I absolutely fully acknowledge and agree that meaning is subjective! I don't disagree that some fights have more (or less) meaning than others due to the situation and that's not what I was arguing. I was just looking for some more clarification on your position. And I asked a couple of questions about it because I don't understand why you think that and instead of answering any of them you picked something else in my post and responded with af****** picture.
And yes there actually is something else to say besides the picture, because the pic doesn't give me any information (other than you just don't want to explain why you think the way you do).
So I'll ask again:
Why do you think a fight over an injured friend and teammate is "more fun" as you put it.
Why do you think showing respect after a hard fought battle reduce everything that happened leading up to it "meaningless" i.e. Handshakes after Playoff rounds or occasionally after fights. (You have to know that a lot of those guys give each other props when the refs finally jump in)
That's all I wanted to know! I'm not looking for af****** 20 page essay I just wanted a little clarification.
Edit: This is getting a little heated, Y'all know I don't hate any of you guys, I just love in depth discussions and I hate bad arguments that are lacking support or are full of fallacies. (and I have an admittedly abrasive personality when taking the pain meds I take for my back)
I'm just gonna leave these here

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.
In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)
