The individual that saves lives, prolongs them and has sat in post secondary education for a decade or more. I lost all respect for the players at that moment. He countered with, 'how many people put there life on the line everyday and can end up in a wheel chair'. Well Nick. How about every police officer, firefighter, construction worker, high altitude electrician, military officer...shall I go on? Honestly.. What a block head!
Listening to their ridiculous rants on tv, twitter and radio makes my stomach curl. Watching them show up to meetings with their suits on and baseball caps and toques is laughable. You guys go ahead and waste your time with these bafoons, the greater society doesn't need hockey to survive.
I will get a kick come Jan and the league cancels the season. Then these dumb idiots can go home and ask themselves how they can throw away multi millions of dollars in a year when the average person has to struggle to make a living. These are not cattle, even cattle know when to come in when there is a storm. These guys are complete block heads.
Dude, i lost all respect for Kyper during that rant! I posted my tirrade (very similar to yours) last night haha.
How he kept blabbing that "$575k is not enough in a city like New York, LA, etc." What ****in planet does this guy live on? With average income in the states around 40k/year, these pylons are arguing that
$575k is just NOT enough for a 4th liner who may only play 5-6 years in the NHL???
In the new agreement they may have to give up $50k on average and be house poor with $525k??? Not to mention these guys basically have no living expenses for 8 months a year!
Just a moronic outlook on life and reality!
