So your blaming poor ticket sales on the fact we don't fight anymore.... Would have nothing to do with the economy.
I would love for you to explain to Bob Probert's wife and 4 kids as well as countless other familys that lost someone way too soon because it will sell more tickets. Ignoring the long term effects of head trauma due to toughness is ignorance.
Not to nit pick, but Probie's death was caused by cardiac arrest aka a heart attack (years of alcohol, and drug abuse were contributing factors).
But yes - his brain was donated for research, and signs of CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) were present.
