It All Makes Sense

Here, just….go and read this now – its the update on Steve Downie.

There’s a new name for my pain….and it is Colin Campbell.

I really am dumbstruck by this decision. I mean, I already had my bar set low – I was counting on the punishment to be light. What I didn’t expect was that I would have to amend that statement by having to say it thusly:


I was counting on the punishment being light, if anything at all.

Let’s run down the list of things wrong with this situation:

  • He’s already a previous offender
  • He plays on a team with an outright bad track record this year
  • The NHL Commissioner already issued a threat against the team if more of this kept up
  • It’s Downie’s fifth NHL game played and he’s already got more suspension games than that under his belt

What a joke. These clowns in charge should be ashamed of themselves and most of all, they should all be terminated from their positions.
