My penalty record is nothing to be proud of and the fighting I did as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings, Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins is not something I would like you to emulate. When it comes to hockey violence, your dad speaks first hand. Stiffer penalties right across the board are a must. Fines are irrelevant. In all my years with the Flyers I never had to pay a penny of all the fines handed out to me.

Dave Schultz was a Californian high school wrestling champion and attended the University of Oklahoma, where he became a 1982 NCAA champion. He was one of America's best known international wrestlers in the 1980s, winning six medals at the World Championships, including a gold in 1984. In addition to his Olympic gold medal, he won gold at the 1987 Pan American Games and 1987 Goodwill Games, and was a two-time champion at the Tbilisi Tournament in Georgia. Schultz was the coach of the team and was also training for another shot at the Olympics in 1996, when he was shot and killed by du Pont. Du Pont had been exhibiting very bizarre behavior in the months preceding the murder. He was found guilty and mentally ill, but not insane, and was sentenced to 15-30 years in prison.
