The Sovietsky reporter I mentioned was calling in to defend Semin after this article came out. That failed because the reporter answered all questions with complete honesty, so Semin ended up looking worse.

It was basically: "Sure, Semin only fraternizes with OV, doesn't often hang out with other members of the team, he and OV party hard every chance they get, treats the fans and media with scorn, and he's a diva...but he's really a fun guy if he likes you! Really! Don't be so mean!"

If such statements from a former teammate and subsequent interview had come out about Richards/Carter/Any Flyers Star, the media fallout would have been insane. It's largely blown over here since it doesn't involve the Redskins. This team doesn't need that.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
