We've all seen pictures of a lot of young NHLers drinking, drunk, smoking, etc., and yet because some crap writer in Philadelphia can't come up with anything better to print, Richards can't do his job because he's partying too much.
Could Richie have handled the situation with Carchidi far better than he did? Absolutely. But it sounds as though no answer was going to suffice for Carchidi this time around.
I'm not trying to say in the least bit that I'm siding with the media. They're all douchers who, like you said, can't find anything else to write about. I'm just trying to argue the point that they could be slightly more careful when they go out.
