But who kicks their leg up like that when you're trying to get away from a linesmen! I've never seen that in my years of watching and playing hockey. It was a completely unnatural movement, no one can convince me otherwise.

A match misconduct? It's the hackers strategy to gain an edge. Let's not pretend it isn't being done.
So now Owen Sound isn't allowed to play rough? Their strategy is exactly right for the situation they're in, and so far it's paying off. You just sound bitter that it's working.

Mark Hunter sounds like a whiny *****. It's a physical game and it's a strategy to play physical against the other team's top players. Like I just said, the OS strategy is paying off and London fans and apparently their management are bitter for it because their precious stars can't take the body or a little roughing after the whistle. "It's concerning to us". Well why? Because it makes you not win? London fans and the entire team are spoiled right now. You can't always win. Don't ***** when things finally don't go your way. It's the playoffs, not a curling tournament. Things are going to get rough.

I'm not really cheering for either team in this series, I think my team is capable of beating both of their possible opponents. But I have to agree with Angelidis here. It IS a clear kick. He's right, there's no way the linesman caused his leg to come up like that. The "laser kick" is funny and an exaggeration. I don't know how serious he was when he said it, but if I had to guess, it sounds like an attempt at humour. If he's serious, then he's badly exaggerating. It was a kick, but not a hard one with any potential to injure.

What Bolland said is downright embarassing. He seems kind of illiterate, actually. I thought he was a classy kid but what he said there is just stupid. Everything he said doesn't fit with what's on the tape. It fits with a "cover my *** until I die" mentality, which is the immature way of handling it. He really didn't say manhandle enough. He should've stepped up and apologized to the team and the fans for doing something stupid. Instead, he sounds like a whiny ***** just like Mark Hunter does. Man-up and admit it already. Of course he knows his own intents, but don't be naive enough to believe he wouldn't lie to save his own reputation!

Perhaps he figured that out on the replays too.
I'm assuming you've only watched the video once and formed your opinion on that? So what if he had to watch it 5 times? This seems like a childish attempt to deflect the heat off of your team.

I have no doubt you'll believe Bolland over Angelidis (but especially the league, right?). That's what a homer is. We all are. But if Angelidis is being untruthful, then Bolland's pants must really be on fire.
