If this was a biopic this would be the part where Boston is returning to it's roots.

While I appreciate the lack of random shootings and stray bullets I hope for a return to fistfights where everyone can walk away more or less in decent shape.

This is one of those things someone ought to call "ironic" so a bunch of people can pile on claiming that's not what the word means. Go ahead, you know you want to.
