Listen after the commercial break. Botch is a ******.
Are we picking sides, now? Okay. Botch did descend into ****ery but that's what happens when you're forced to entertain the belligerence of an *******. Not worth the energy to keep pretending you're having a reasonable discussion.
Oh please. We all love seeing a huge hit in football, a knockout or a broken bone in combat sports, a crash in car racing.
Tell me you didn't love it when Volpatti KO'd Winchester or when Rypien ragdolled Clune?
"Oh please" yourself.
Visually, it's what it looks like and is very unsettling to me, especially with sports fans yelling "Yeeaah!! That's what it's all about!" on top of it. That's all I'm saying. You can't oh please someone for reacting the way they're going to react. I didn't make any sort of a statement besides that.
I'd say any thrill I get from that dissipates the minute you see that sort of visual. I don't mean when someone's visibly hurt, but when their face all trembly, paralyzed, and out of it. It's creepy.
When Rypien ragdolled Clune, he looked fine afterwards and pissed off that he was made to look like a fool. Totally different.
Zero hyperbole. It's a description of what it looks like.

And your point being.... Stevens wasn't making a play for the soul purpose of injuring a player, he was making a hockey play. How is using your teamate to funnel a player into a hitting area illegal and not a hockey play?
Are you really that naive to think he wasn't going out there to hurt guys?
Botch and Sekeres should be the main team 1040 show. Taylor and BMac are brutal.....
Oh hell yes! Bmac and Taylor basically sit around talking about the original six teams and crappy music and tv shows from the 60s and 70s. I didn't realize 1040 was so interested in appealing to the 55+ audience...
I find it ironic that they are running the anti-bullying campaign yet this argument was essentially Ferraro bullying Botch.
That's how I felt after listening. Its not only that Ferraro did it, but that he kept piling on when you could tell Botch was down. Completely uncalled for and unacceptable - Ferraro owes Botch an apology; whether it's accepted or not remains to be seen.
btw, the irony in your post is how much cyber bullying goes on here.
Botchford is an idiot who can't backup his statements
I used to like Botchford but as of late I think he either had someone prop his ego or something or he has decided to be a clown or something, But either way I hope Ray took him down a notch. I think someone mentioned it last season that Botch was seen hanging out with the players more and since then he was acting like he was in the know or something
But Ferraro played the game. Ergo, everything he says about anything related to hockey is correct and not up for debate.
I think sometime we forget that former players have better insight into what goes on in the game then those who have made a living reporting it. I think it was on off the record a few years ago that the host had two reporters and two former pros who who were now reporters and when Micael L and the two guys who had just been reporters agreed on something. One of the former pros told them straight out they had no idea about what had caused a problem. One of the reporters said that he had two players tell him what happened, the one former player pointed out that he was on the team and he was there when a problem started and that the two players either screwing with him or wanted him just to go away. He said he played he often told reporters crap just to get them to go away and to leave them alone.
