Respect given, when he does that to 100 yr old Cherry.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Kessel has serious issues and your enabling is not helping!

But by all means, carry on... :thumbs:

The funny thing is, this is what it takes for them to question his leadership.

The Leaves need to dig up some old Naslund postgame interviews for him to learn from.

"I don't know what happened, I guess we came out flat..."

"I don't know what happened, I guess we weren't prepared..."

"We choked"

That is the leadership the Leaves need.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I'm not a Kessel fan, although I wouldn't mind him on our second line if we were deep everywhere else, a pure sniper. But I do respect him for telling the media to get lost. There are certain times throughout the season when the media just need to back the fuck off. If he was like that after every game then Ya he is being a dick. But after that loss to Buffalo I think the media just needs to suck it up and leave him alone. Why be cry babies over it. They are full of self importance and the feeling of entitlement.

There are positives and negatives to being a pro athlete.

This is stating the obvious.

One of the negatives is dealing with the media.

Suck it up ponyboy.

I'm not a Phil Kessel or Toronto fan. But, I liked that he told the media to get away from him after a big loss. Knowing full well that they would be asking inane and incendiary questions a few minutes after the game ended.
Yeah well that's why he gets paid the big bucks.

Thought we had you pegged as a Leaf-lover....

The local sports media's latest "second half slide" story is only 3 days old and gaining momentum. Maybe it will shame/inspire the team for a better effort.

Speaking of media, whats the story on Barry Macdonald,he was away for a long time,thought he'd been replaced by Moj

I doubt the Vancouver media will "shame/inspire" anyone on the Canucks. My guess is more along the lines of it will slowly beat them down with the constant inane questions about last season/the slide etc. This would be so tiring to have to answer the same questions day after day until they get out of the current slump.

BMac unfortunately suffers from depression. He took time off to deal with it:
