Bettman: Torts fined because he cursed 4 times...
I thought this was big news and it would just get lost in pretty old thread about the fine. If mods want to put it there I get it, but I think a lot of people would miss it. And this is more about Bettman then the fine.
So Cindy's uncle Gary went on Francesa (I guess hoping to get a soft interview since Francesa knows nothing about hockey) and I'm trying to find the audio but snyrangersblog has a recap and they report that, "Gary Bettman says that he fined John Tortorella because he cursed four times. He wasn’t fined because of the comments he made about the Pens." And, "Bettman says that Torts is a great guy and professional coach and that when he is in a media setting like that he shouldn’t curse."
So with that as the reason this looks even more absurd. What, is four the magic number or something? Torts often curses in these things. And how about you talk to the man first before taking 20,000 dollars from him about something so stupid.
