I think Bertuzzi has watched A Few Good Men one too many times.





Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

Apparently Todd Bertuzzi has not learned from history that "I was just following orders" is not a defense. Then again, perhaps he is just a simpleton.

We shall say 'ni' to you again if you do not appease us!

Donfish is exactly right. Poor Todd was encouraged all his life to be a big tough hockey player. Each time he landed a big hit he was rewarded with cheers and adulation. Crawford as his father figure coach was there to gently nurture and guide him through the difficult life journey of being a power forward. Crawford abused that sacred patronly trust by encouraging revenge. Poor Todd was left feeling confused. He needed to please his fans and to please his coach and he went overboard. I ask you, who among us has not tried to please people?

As for Kwaame, the man is simply crying out for more love in his life. Since when it is a crime to want to be loved?

Boy, this is fun .. watching Wings fan bashed Bertuzzi. Not long ago, many here defended him as both a player AND person. He's always been a self-centered prick, not a player you hope kids look up to; an ******* who thinks he is above any punishment. Dude should never have been allowed back into the league. And Burke, Crawford, that whole Vancouver team that he played on and thoroughly defended him - right on up to the NHL offices, s***, even Gretzky saying he should be forgiven - even invited him to Team Canada ... F 'em all.

Suing Crawford? What a friggin' joke.

This whole thing was way beyond ugly before this. But then again money is money and you shouldn't really be all that surprised a thing like this pops up...

My thinking here is, Moore wont let it go because he's losing money quick, and Bertuzzi named Crawford, because he doesn't have an extra $38 Million in the bank right now.

And I think Crawford should be minimally responsible, as in 2-5% of damages. He made the order, but I'm betting Bert would have done it anyway.

Oh by the way, Edicius: I was just playing some Marvel superheroes, and I gotta say, Deadpool is by far the coolest.

I'm wondering something...was Burke still GM of the Nucks when the hit went down? If so...I would think that if Bertuzzi is suing Crawford, he should sue Burke too. But we all know that he'd never sue his "daddy".

And Deadpool's supposed to make a cameo in the new Wolverine movie. I'm geeked. Gonna get a DP tattoo soon too.

I fell bad for Bert that this s*** is STILL dragging out.


I think we ALL felt horribly for Moore when the incident happened, and a lot of us either disliked or hated Bert for the incident. But after all the years and what has transpired since, I think a lot of people have actually done a complete 180 and now feel bad for Bert and dislike Moore.

Moore represents the typical North American "sue happy" culture. First off, he could have played hockey again if he wanted to. He did not want to becasue he was banking on becoming a millionaire in his lawsuit. Second, Moore was not a good hockey player and would never have made the anywhere even close to the amount he is sueing for, claiming he would have made.

And the fact that Moores money grubbing parents are also trying to get in on the sue fest by sueing Bert seperately for millions for "emotional trauma" or some other such nonsense becasue they saw the hit on TV is some of the most ridiculous s*** I have heard of. Its disgusting and Moores parents should be ashamed of themselves. But then again, it shows us where Moore gets his values from and the overall picture becomes a bit clearer.

How about every time a player gets injured, the parents sue the guy who delivered the hit? Better yet, how about every time a player even gets checked or knocked down, the parents sue? Ridiculous.....
