How can you throw a punch and then stand there with a straight face and say that you are not fighting. You have definitely started the fight so don’t be upset when the defender decides to fight back. It is, of course, not okay to go around throwing punches and is quite ridiculous to think that people are going to simply take your punch and keep on stepping or allow you to keep on stepping.
I guess the real issue is that you must be so used to throwing punches that you don’t even recognize that your gloves are on. You don’t know what a punch looks like now-a-days. Well, others do.
When do you ever step out of the rink. Better yet, when do I.
