What, you ask, did I say to garner such ire?
I mean OBVIOUSLY I should be strung up from the nearest tree, Y/Y?
DEAR STUPID ISLES FANS,
PLEASE STOP TRYING TO DEFEND TREVOR GILLIES’ BEHAVIOR BY TALKING ABOUT HOW THIS PLAYER OR THAT PLAYER ARE DIRTY TOO AND DO X, Y, AND Z! YOU’RE NOT HELPING YOUR CASE, YOU’RE ONLY MAKING YOURSELVES LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF DUMBASSES AND THUGS!
Some of you keep saying that you’re “not defending Gillies or anything, but…” followed by rambling on about how another player plays dirty (usually a diatribe about Cooke). Point of fact, you ARE defending Gillies. Dirty is dirty and just because there might be a dirtier player out there (there isn’t) doesn’t mean that Gillies should be “let go”. The “AWWWW, BUT THEY’RE DOING IT TOO.” defense stops working somewhere around the time a person enters Kindergarten.
Yes Matt Cooke is dirty and he levels some foul hits (Fedor Tyutin happens to be one of my Favorite players), and I think the Pens should be slapped around with sticks for giving him an “A”, or a job at all really.
However, Trevor Gillies is BEYOND ANYTHING Matt Cooke could ever hope to be. Gillies is the hockey equivalent of that mob guy who goes around busting knee caps and cutting off fingers with cigar cutters to get people to pay up.
Hitting and fighting in Professional Men’s hockey will ALWAYS have a place, Gillies “style” of douchery DOES NOT.
If the Isle themselves won’t step up and do what they should have done long ago and escort Gillies to the curb with the rest of the trash, the the League itself is going to have to or the next headline about Gillies is going to be “Hockey Player Dies on Ice After Dirty Hit!” and the sport isn’t going to survive something like that.
For the record, I am not a Pens OR an Isles fan.
With blood and rage of crimson red, ripped from a corpse so freshly dead, together with our hellish hate, we’ll burn you all, that is your Fate!
Just thought I’d remind the ether that is the internet there is a reason I wear a Red Lantern Ring. I WILL FUCK YOUR SHIT UP!
So, Jacket’s facebook page bandwagoners, this one is for you…
I seriously just saw someone (most likely a Habs fan) compair Zdeno Chara to a serial killer… and the comment currently has a +18 rating…
I can’t even…
IT’S CALL PERSPECTIVE PEOPLE, AND YOU OBVIOUSLY NEED TO GET SOME! FUCKING HELL.
Bonus minirant, it would be nice if more than one of these so call sports “journalists” would set aside their own team and emotional biases when “report” or commenting on this entire event. Leave the irrationality, crazy and stupidity to the fans folks, seriously.
As far as I’m concerned the fans ARE a part of the team and I will continue to say “we” and to call them “my guys/boys” and I have no fucks to give that some people might have a problem with that.
YOUR TEAM WILL NEVER NEED YOU MORE THAN WHEN THEY ARE LOSING.
