Some Context for Consent in Sports

In my Torts class, we discuss consent to intentional torts in, among other contexts, sports -- in particular hockey.  Given the interesting evident difference between what is technically prohibited and what is generally accepted as part of the game, it's a nice foundation for a conversation.  Add to that the New York Times extensively-researched look at hockey through the life, and death, of "enforcer" Derek Boogaard.  Certainly worth a read.
