The question is, why are so many of you insecure enough to be affected by his piece and views on the sport? Ignorance is a trait applied by us all to some activities/topics we niether understand or observe.

Enjoy the sport and move on.
Because his ignorant views will turn away potential fans.

Someone who has never seen a hockey game before will read that article and think "gosh, that sport sounds terrible"

It's been said many times, if this guy had not written the article so poorly and not with the sole intention of bashing the sport, people would have actually agreed with some of his views.
