PO should have tempered the comments or advise him because of his age. Good writers know what to include or exclude. Even though the kid is getting a chance of a lifetime he's on the spot. It's in print and i am sure his formers will read it. If this doesn't work, his reputation for fingerpointing will precede him.
So now that the can is open, it is predicament vs ability for him being here?
Most of PO's reporting has been good up to this point.Have to agree with Dansk on this one though.I still am ticked off at the TSN reporter who at the world JR's tried to get the Canadian players to say something bad about the refs after the one game the opponets were flopping around like fish out of water to get a penality. That reporter asked 4-5 times during his interviews to get the players to say something nasty and they didnt bite.Shame on TSN. Most reporters dont report the news,they report only what sells.Always 2 sides to the story.I did one interview for a non sport related story to the reporter who then took my comments and twisted around to make a STORY.I asked him for a rebuttal and he refused.From now on,NO COMMENT
