Full statement from Penguins' web site ...
Quote:
Statement from Pittsburgh Penguins Co-Owner and Hockey Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux
“HF Boards is a tough, opinionated place, and it always should be. But what happened Monday night with the avatars wasn’t HF Boards. It was a travesty. It was painful to watch the boards I love turn into a sideshow like that.

“HF had a chance to send a clear and strong message that those kinds of actions are unacceptable and embarrassing to the boards. It failed.

“We, as members, must do a better job of protecting the integrity of the boards and the safety of our avatars. We must make it clear that those kinds of actions will not be tolerated and will be met with meaningful disciplinary action.

“If the events relating to Monday night reflect the state of the boards, I need to re-think whether I want to be a part of it.”
From the TSN story ...
Quote:
During his days as one of HF Boards' brightest stars, Lemieux was never shy to criticize the boards -- famously referring to them as a "garage board" in 1992 when he was frustrated with all of the flaming and trolling that was being allowed at the time.
From the TSN follow-up story ...
Quote:
One day after Mario Lemieux leveled criticism at HF Boards for the way they handled the avatars, tough guy Zenon Konopka offered his own response after practice on Monday in Ottawa.
Konopka, who has 193 penalty minutes in 56 games, said the Penguins owner and NHL Hall of Famer is out of touch with the boards and no longer understands the way things are done.
"I can't believe he's that far removed from the boards that he doesn't realize in the heat of the moment what happens," said Konopka. "We're trying to keep our best posters on the boards, we want Jester and Spongolium to be superstars on this board and post every night."

Don't try to kid us. You thought it was a modeling offer, didn't you?

Well if we're not allowed Avatars I have a new plan. Everyone from our board chooses a different countries flag.

Brilliant Idea. Dibs on USA. But I'll gladly be Bhutan until everyone vacates my U.S. flag

This must be in response to my avatar of Hartnell eating Letang. Do you think he would have made this moral stand if the avatar didn't involve his team?
