Is Hockey Being Lost as a Canadian Game
Is Hockey Being Lost as a Canadian Game? Hockey, to many Canadians it is their favourite sport or pastime. This game is a part of Canadian’s heritage. Although with the ongoing “Americanizing” of Canada, it is only a matter of time before Canada’s game is changed as well. The NHL, National Hockey League, is the professional league for hockey. In the past, and still today, Canadians have made up the greater part of the leagues players. The article NHL Melting Pot gives statistics and a graph of

You can not change something that has been around for so long because it would change the aspect of the game to something completely different. The elimination of violence should not be done in sport because the violence is a part of the game which would only hurt its pop

The children of today are surrounded by technology and entertainment that is full of violence. It is estimated that the average child watches from three to five hours of television a day!

During the 1970s health concerns about the herbicides brought about go
During the 1970s, health concerns about the herbicides brought about government restrictions that caused a sharp decrease in the manufacture and use of 2,4,5-T. Since 1983, the use of 2,4,5-T has been prohibited in the United States. Many other countries also have ended its use. Of additional concern is a contaminant called dioxin (2,3,7,8,-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, or TCDD), which often forms when 2,4,5-t is manufactured. Of the approximately 75 chemicals in the dioxin family, TCDD is the m

Also, we will also be observing the differences in brand and if they matter. The puck will also be researched, in order to calculate the physics of the shot. Ice hockey originated in Canada in the 1800s, and the first modern indoor hockey game was played in Montreal in 1875. By the 1890s it had become extremely popular and had spread to the United States.

Salary Cap
Salary Cap
Salary Cap The issue of a salary cap is one that has troubled Major League Baseball for over a decade now, dating back to before the labor strike of 1994. It is my belief that a salary cap is necessary for baseball to continue to thrive and profit while maintaining its current league set up. A salary cap, I believe, is somewhat of a misnomer. A salary cap would serve not to limit how much a player can make. It could more aptly be called a “payroll cap”, since in essence that is what it does; the

Anybody in their right mind would consider what happened there just plain crazy. And you would think that knowing about such things would deter it from happening again, today, or in the future. Well, it hasn't. In the 1950's there was a similar case to that of Salem. People were being accused of being communists because of perfectly legal meetings they had held, or been t

Wanting a salary cap limiting roster size and negotiating medical insu
Wanting a salary cap, limiting roster size, and negotiating medical insurance were the main reasons for the NHL strike of 1993-94 where labor gained unrestricted free agency and medical insurance, but lost arbitration and the amount of fines. One of the main reasons for the strike was management wanted a salary cap. A salary cap gives management a limit on how much the pay the players. When the players didn’t agree, management wanted a luxury tax that was very similar to a salary cap. They don
