Exactly. Its not the act of shoving or how much damage was done to the fan. Its the fact that a player reached into the stands with intent to cause harm. Under no circumstances should a player even think about touching a fan.
How do you know there was intent to cause harm?
You absolutely CAN NOT put your hands on a fan. period. He's lucky to be alive, that kids father should have stabbed him or something, he would have been justified.
Are you serious? First I doubt highly the person is a kid. If I had to guess he is in his 20's and that is old enough to vote, die in the military and drink. As for the father and stabbing.... think about that statement for a second.
Ok, thanks guys, i was most upset about the report they were ejected.
I'm still for the suspension, season and playoffs. They need to fit all arenas with glass covering at least the opposing team, for both player and fan safety, those fans look really close.
Again Rypien is an idiot for what he did but there is no chance in hell it will even come remotely close to a season let alone the season and playoffs. If by some miracle it does my mind will be simply blown to pieces by the stupidity of the NHL.
i think you're overreacting. think back to the milbury shoe incident. no suspensions over 10 games. and milbury beat a fan with his shoe!
Lol! Cause it's funny, the shoe thing not your statement. haha
