1 - agree to not shoot puck after whistle
2 - agree not to run up score in college
3 - agree to dribble out clock
4 - disagree don't steal with big lead
5 - don't care about touching NHL trophy
6 - agree don't talk to pitcher during no-hitter
7 - disagree not celebrating goal against old team
8 - agree don't play hard D on victory formation
9 - disagree NHL GM's don't sign offer sheets
10 - agree don't bunt to break up no-hitter, unless it's a tight game

Not exactly an unwritten rule, but if you undercut my guy, I should be able to swing on you with just a reasonable punishment. Getting suspended for 10+ games is crazy. I hate how harshly the NBA punishes fighting.

Practically every one of those in baseball. If they were written they would encompass 4 encyclopedia series...remember those?

IIRC in the 1999 UT-Arkansas game, Arkansas was in a victory formation and a Vol player (Eric Westmorland?)played super hard D and things got chippy.
Re: #2, if a team has a big lead and is playing their 2nd or 3rd string players, why not let them ball out?
One not on here is when a batter hits a HR and admires it. He gets thrown at in a later AB. That is stupid IMO. Pitchers ego is that fragile?
