We now know that the coach of the Michigan State hockey team has suspended the two players for the rest of the season, the two who mugged another player during last Saturday's game. No one should take any satisfaction from this suspension.
State has a long and glorious history in the hockey game and that should not be overlooked. No fan, even of the other team, should take pleasure in seeing State face this punishment.
Rivalry is a good thing. Hatred and violence are not "rivalry" and not sport.
