Yeah banning bodychecks doesn't ban physical contact. This will do nothing except put immense pressure on the league/refs to enforce it.

It's silly, and hopefully they reconsider.

They won't. If those leagues want to open, they'll have to abide by the "scientific" guidelines. Not a big deal because in the grand scheme of things, not playing will hurt more then not having bodychecking.

It doesn?t help that Lisa McLeod is the Sports minister and she is profoundly incompetent.

CarltonTheBear:
Lisa MacLeod yesterday:

No bodychecking in the OHL this season, period. This is a settled matter per our healthcare policy and is not up for debate.

Doug Ford today:

"To date no decisions have been made. I would like to see the OHL return as normal as possible with body checking."
