In Topic: Greatest US-born NHLer of all time?

I'd go with Cheli.  He was one of the best defensemen ever, he was dedicated to the game, he worked hard, and he won some stuff.  Ya gotta win stuff to be a winner, ya know.

I think it's time we stopped looking to entertainment figures to be role models.


There are a lot of good ones out there who use their fame and money for good causes, and I applaud that, but I'm talking about the ones who are doing bad things.  We give people gigantic amounts of money that most of us will never come close to having.  We surround them with people who constantly tell them how great they are.  We treat them as though they are demigods.  We can't get enough of them.  Then we expect them to act like regular people. 


Some can pull it off; some can't. 


Why are we not pointing to parents, teachers, and leaders in the community as role models?  Granted, not all of them are good people, but if they're people we know, we can judge them on who they are, not what they are portrayed as being.


I'm actually glad that the NFL is done with who slept with whom or hit whom or whatever crimes they committed and are back to arguing about the sport itself and not the people who play it.


It's a game, and a manly one at that.  It's taken some time, but the news stories are finally back to men arguing over who has the bigger balls.
