Varlamov Arrested

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

CBJ's Tyutin had some strong (and awful imo) comments on the situation....

“I personally know Semyon very well. He is quite a true, considerate guy. As soon as I heard it all, I realized that it is all blown [out of proportion].

“It’s just American laws are on the women’s side, that’s why they can go to the police for any little thing, complain and bring a lot of problems to men.

“That’s why the only mistake of Semyon is that he got together with this girl.”

I wouldn't call Tyutin's comments awful, but yeah definitely strong. First off he's biased. Varlamov is his friend, so he's obviously going to defend him. Second, he's foreign (I know he's spent a lot of time here), this isn't his home country or the laws he grew up with, so he may not appreciate or understand them like some of us do. That being said, he's not entirely wrong. The system has been abused by SOME women. No system is perfect.

All-in-all, Tyutin took a pretty extreme stance and probably should have just kept his mouth shut. The courts will figure this out and we'll see if Varly is truly at fault in due time.

All right, people. Let's keep this about Varlamov. If it's going to be about abuse in general thus thread will ave to be moved. Also, keep the discussion from getting personal.

I see what you (unintentionally) did there...

Such a shame this sort of thing happens because, regardless of the outcome, it sticks with players forever. Hope it's sorted speedily and justice, if necessary, is served.

The story is next:

Varlamov's girlfriend had an affair with Steve Downie... Varlamov surprised them...

Varlamov was arrested and Downie traded couple of hours after...

You're kidding, right?

If that was the case, she's get 2 minutes for Too Many Men and he'd get 2 minute for Third Man In and they'd just cancel each other out and go on with their lives.

To be honest with you, this is coming from Avs/Nordiques connection and we should have more info next week. As speculation it makes sense.

What's simply amazing is a lot of the Russian media and politicians saying that this was a setup and that the U.S. Is trying to keep Varlamov out of the Olympics.

If by "a lot" you mean one (1) idiot MP, and by "media" all the Russian papers that scoffed at him for saying that, then OK.

One might gain prospective if one considers the idiotic/politically motivated things that regularly come out of the mouths of US members of Congress, before reacting to the same coming out of a foreign parliament member.

It wasn't just one and when the main Russian news station keeps repeating it and doesn't discount the comment, it gives it credence wether it's one moron saying it or everyone. And dude I was born there so I have plenty of perspective about what the Russian government or the government controlled media say.

Noone of consequence repeated this rubbish, and nobody takes (or should take) Perviy kanal seriously.

And as you might have guessed from my nick, I am also far from home.

I agree they nobody should take Perviy kanal seriously and I also know that the common people and anyone with half a brain never believed the comments. But whether we like it or not Perviy kanal is kinda the face of Russian news around the world and it just bugs me that this garbage gets spewed out into the universe. As should you because it makes us look bad.

Sorry guys but on an international stage, "Russian news" lost it's credibility a while ago.

One is a result/bi-product of the other.

I disagree. In Soviet times TV lied way more professionally and convincingly and as a result was taken seriously in more places than it is now. However, it still had no credibility over here. So one does not necessarily flow from the other.

It does not make me look bad. Just like when Speaker Boehner says something stupid or hypocritical, it need not make all Ohioans look bad. Those guys in politics represent themselves first and foremost. So I feel no responsibility or their behavior.

If speaker Boehner or Obama come out saying that Russia passed the anti *** rights bill just so that US Olympians can't come to the Olympic Games I'd be all over that too. But no one in their right minds would say that and CNN would definitely not cover it like it was a plot. Political climate all over the world are different and politicians do cater to their constituents which in its own right is kinda sad. But if we wanted to discuss world politics I'm sure we would be in a different forum. With my first post I was simply pointing out the coverage this situation was getting in Russia. Whether politically motivated or not the comments got more attention than they deserved.

In what world is your credibility not based on what you do, say and think? That's entirely what you base credibility on.
