Yes and I agree to an extent, but the point you're missing is that he has the opportunity to speak his mind, eat crow/apologize and then move on. He was not giving that same right to a certain player, fair or unfair, based on his "reputation". If that player had made those comments, he would be suspended if not by the team directly, then by the league for a long, long time. Right or wrong?
Absolutely correct and that's why I agreed it was hypocritical. But the apology had to be made.
I like Torts, please don't get me wrong, but this is someone who talks the talk and can't walk the walk. Extremely hypocritical considering the short leash he had on a certain former #16... I know this isn't the right thread for that, but this is the first time I've seen his apology and quite frankly it comes off piss poor given his treatment of a former player who would be fined, suspended and banished from the NHL if he had "embarrassed" the team and the NHL the way Tortorella supposedly did on the league's biggest stage.
Worse than saying what Tortorella said when he did is apologizing for it afterwards. He said exactly what he meant and he meant everything he said. Own it and don't bend over to save face with Bettman. The calls and non-calls late in the game were a freaking disgrace!
This is Torts 2nd screw up. And it was a screw up.
wonder how he is going to hold himself accountable?
Glad to know he's a huge Giants fan. Chose the right team!
