Violence is often said to be something that doesn’t solve problems. That isn’t entirely true.
Back in January, AHL defenceman Brandon Manning of the Bakersfield Condors received a 5-game suspension over a racial slur he hurled at Ontario Reign forward Bokondji Imama.
Imama released a statement that stated that there is no place in the game for such conduct.
Well, fast forward to Friday night and the two players met up on the ice for the first time since the incident. It took just a little over two minutes before Imama and Manning disposed of their helmets and gloves at centre ice and went toe-to-toe throwing hands.
After they grappled for awhile, Imama eventually got his hands free and pummeled Manning with a number of lefts, hitting him with huge punches before taking him down to the ice.
Good for him.
