If he weighs in at 286 lbs. he needs to stop the beer and start drinking water.


Damn. Lions could use him for some more D-line depth at that weight.

So I was thinking, has there ever been a 300 lb NHL player? Being that large has gotta cost you speed, but imagine getting hit by that train!

I peeked around at a few Q&A sites (totally unreliable) but they all have Buffy, Chara, Boogaard, and Jon Scott as the heaviest weighing in between 255 and 270 pounds.

Pffft. I weighed that in third grade. Ooooh, another thought for the "I could have made it in the NHL" thread!

OMFG! I can't believe you people are making fun of fat people!!! If someone chooses to be fat they shouldn't have to face ridicule on some message board by a bunch of self righteous jerks who don't agree with their lifestyle!!! Grow up!!!!!!!!!!!

Equality for ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

In case you haven't been paying attention...It is now socially acceptable to be fat. THAT is the real problem.

Are you serious?
We've finally gotten to the point where it is socially acceptable to be of any race, religion, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or gender. We have gotten rid of the stigma associated with mental illness, addiction, and disability, and now we have to deal with someone who thinks it's not ok to be fat?

We still have work to do.

Poor Buf. First the poster child for black players, now the poster child for fat players.

It is NOT ok to be fat. It is unhealthy. It has nothing to do with bias. If you are fat you are not healthy and in 99% of the cases it is preventable.

None of the things you mentioned above are preventable. Your comparison is not valid. This is exactly the problem. Society wants to compare being fat with a disability. Granted that there are a small % of people that because of medical reasons are pre-destined to be fat but they are in a small minority. Most of the people just don't eat right and exercise enough and that should be discouraged.

I would say that Byguflien gets enough exercise considering that he's a hockey player. So he's a big guy. If he can play, so what?

How many football players are over 300? Quite a few. If you're not an athlete, what does it matter? Health? Sure health is an issue, but it's not the be-all and end-all. Mental health also kills, as we've seen recently. Average people get sick too. Being average-weight lowers your risk, most certainly, but not everyone is average.

If you're saying that being the way a person is is NOT ok, then that is bias, no matter how you look at it. You are choosing to say that one person is ok and another is not based on appearance and physical description.

I know on Torch Lake it is socially acceptable to drink and drive drunk on the lake since the drinking limit is higher than the road and it is legal to drink and drive. Hell, I've never even heard of anyone getting arrested on this lake for being too drunk to drive and Torch is quite the party lake. Those cops must have had it out for him or he must be the worst boater of all time.

I think the bigger problem is the rumor that he is currently weighing in at 286 pounds.


I can't believe he's put on all that weight. A big LOL...

Here's a problem with being fat that affects everyone: It is gluttonous. Fat people don't need all that food. There are billions of people on this planet starving, and being fat and eating more than you need not only steals a meal off a starving child's plate in Africa or India, but indirectly raises food prices domestically. If you think that is ok, then you need a lesson in ethics.
