So far, 66 matches have been played in the SM league season, which is soon the sixth in the regular season.

The early part of the period has been marked by the problems brought about by the corona situation, but there has also been a very positive change in the past.

So far, no bans have been issued in the Finnish Championships, which is very exceptional.

Last season, after a similar number of games (66), seven bans had been distributed, five of which were due to head or back tackling.

These included giant cakes of six and eight games, among others.

In the fall season of 2018, the figure was six, all of which were due to obscene customs.

Three years ago, at the beginning of the 2017-18 season, the game bans had had time to split five at this point, four of which were due to the main signs.

In recent years, it has become commonplace that, especially in the early part of the season, the biggest headlines around the league arise from head-to-head tackles that are scoured at coffee tables across the country.

Game bans have traditionally invariably caused a razor and heated debate.

Some think the sentences are constantly too low, others think it is an exaggeration of emergency protection.

This fall, however, the debate has shone with its absence.
