Botchford is the worst by a big margin for me. Alot of others may be more stupid than him but he adds to the list a complete lack of credibility and professionalism.
He was the one who wrote the story about Gaborik buying a house in Vancouver and how it was a done deal that he would sign to play alongside Demitra.
Last year on TSN he was critical of Getzlaf's decision to stay with the team when his wife was pregnant and about to give birth to their child because they were in a tight playoff race. He said missing the playoffs isn't as big as missing your child's birth. Whether you agree with that or not is irrelevant a comment like that should not be fair game especially when his platform was a thirty second clip on TSN's That's Hockey a national platform with alot of reach.
I don't have the time to keep tabs on every sport's journalist that closely but I"m sure if I followed Botchford's career with more zealous the mountain of reasons to hate that slimy ******* would only get bigger.
