In Topic: In which we SPOOK OURSELVES

29 January 2016 - 03:50 PM

This topic is right up my street, and outside of this community, I was the co-founder and current admin for a long running paranormal research and discussion forum that has now evolved into a weekly radio broadcast on a popular talk radio network. The guy I originally found the site with is the host and it's like a poor man's version of Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell, he interviews people weekly, from authors, to cryptid and UFO witnesses, and even Native American Shamans. 

 

I'm at work so I can't divulge too deep right now, but i'll post up some stories and experiences in the coming days, and the root of where my interest was founded. 


In Topic: Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

29 January 2016 - 01:41 PM

Even though Wideman doesn't have a reputation, and may very well have been in a fog after getting knocked into the boards - I still feel this warrants 8 to 10 games so the league sets the tone.

I agree, because I feel like the intention of doing that to an opposing player was there, and it would have been a dirty shot IF he had caught the player off guard and he collapsed like the ref did. I honestly feel like though if it was a Pred he did that to and not the ref, that the player would have stayed on his skates and it would have just resulted in a minor penalty with no further escalation. Players in overall size and stature can take a lot more impact and I don't think it would have looked anywhere near as bad had it not been a ref.

 

I am firm in the belief that he legitimately didn't know it was a linesman in front of him when he did what he did, and that aspect of it was accidental.

I don't feel like Wideman is a classified "dirty player", nor did he really have any motive to want to just go take out a linesman. I feel like if he was skating off in a bit of a daze, and the opposing team was wearing their white jerseys, his reaction was thinking there was a Predators skater in front of him when he put his head up and threw his arms out before he even realized it was a ref and not a player. 

 

He had zero reason to just go viciously attack a linesmen, It wasn't like he was just in an argument with him or disputed a call he made. It was too random to be intentional, and i'd like to believe that his actions were intended to be directed at a Preds skater.

 

In that video above at 50 seconds, it seems like someone on the bench tells Wideman he just hit a ref and it looks like he had a surprised response of "What?!" which also leads me to believe it was entirely unintended.
