I'll never understand how this stuff comes out from guys like Aliu and Sopel this much later.

Part of me wants to ask them how a mid 20's athlete in prime physical shape could just stand there and let a guy scream at him, choke him, kick him, and basically treat him like a bitch, and not simply feed the dude his lunch. And how can his 20 teammates stand by and not do jack? What happened to the brotherhood? The family? The team?

But now, 15 years later, they grow a pair and can get even thanks Facebook, Twitter, and all the SJW's who regularly patrol the streets of social media looking for a cause to champion and an offender to throw under the wheels of the bandwagon. And even the teammates who stood idly by watching this happen now leap to the defense of their former comrade and join the circus.

I'm not condoning the actions of guys like Peters and Crow, it's pathetic. Just saying that it's pretty sad the way society is moving now. We are one step away from a system where you are guilty until proven innocent, and verdicts are being handed down in the court of public opinion.

Give your mullet a shake Meds. You equate Crow’s bullying to the racist diarrhea coming from Bill Peter’s yap. Peters is a POS. Where there’s smoke there’s fire.Thr guy is a psychopath. A person needs to separate these two incidents. One has nothing to do with the other.

Quenneville sick of Bobrovsky already, the $70M goalie.
Panthers to bench Bobrovsky amid early-season struggles.

But through 21 appearances this season, Bobrovsky owns the NHL's second-worst save percentage at .884.

The 31-year-old Russian seemed to draw Quenneville's ire while allowing four goals on 20 shots versus the Washington Capitals on Wednesday in his most recent start.

"That was a well-played game from our point of view, and we just need some saves to win the game in a game like tonight," the coach said.

So it’s ok to judge the 2018 draft but it’s too soon to judge 2014 or 2016. Or even 2010. Gudbranson might still improve right. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Detroit Red Wings are the worst team in the NHL, what a wholesale mess Kenny Holland left there.
