If I could only have one quality well developed and ready to dominate a violent encounter it would have to be aggression. Â Pure aggression displayed by a “target” can be a game changer in the mind of those that are trying to hurt others.
Criminals are looking for an easy mark
It is very difficult for a criminal to hurt you when they are forced to protect themselves.
Aggression isn’t a guarantee to domination or even survival, but, if I’m not going to make it, I intend to be the last person they ever hurt.
Don’t forget that no matter what, violence is chaotic. Â The longer it lasts the less likely we are able to control the outcome. Â As you will see from today’s FF’s violence could even turn into a hockey game!
At about :50 in the video you can see the cheap shot that kinda got everything going in 1996. Â I’m not talking about the sucker punchÂ earlierÂ in the video, but instead the hit from behind. Â Drapers face is smashed against the dasher. Â His jaw and cheek bone are broken and heÂ receivedÂ a severe concussion. Â The second fight occurs two years later as the aggressive rivalry continues.
The second video fits in between the 1996 hit on Draper and the 1998 fight with McCarty. Â The Brawl. Â The opposite of aggression.
I love hockey and being from Detroit the Wings are certainly my team. Â My purpose in showing these videos isn’t about right or wrong, or Wings vs. Avs. Â The point instead is about aggression. Â There are numerous examples in the video where fights are “won” by the more aggressive fighter. Â Again, right or wrong these guys have done an amazing job cultivating aggression. Â How bout you?
