Its funny that you say that, since you've been on this board talking about this for the last while...

I was thinking the same thing.

You're in Vegas with tonnes of money and you're wearing sweatpants and a sweatshirt?

He's never seen Swingers because that is not money.

You think this was necessary? I may not like certain things, but that doesn't mean I hate everything in society.

My analogy was hyperbolized just to give an idea that there is no such thing as little or big when it comes to poor ethics. You're either ethical or not. It's black and white. This also isn't his first misstep either. He's shown more than once where his heads at. Being a repeat offender of stupidity must bother the organization. They want solid players with good character.

Why do you feel the need to defend Kane?

It's stuff like this that makes me miss the Moose. Guys playing for the love of the game... it was affordable hockey and you never saw your players do that. Not saying there aren't dinks at that level, but the spoiled brat level is just no where near in sight like the NHL. Yes, I get that 85 percent of the NHL is former AHL alumni.

i think its the points of message board to discuss.

his opinion = kane is ok

your opinion = something different

it jsut happens that the opinion held happens to be one defendent of the player in question, no?


TSNE is welcome to build a team of good christian boys with holesome values, loving families, and wives they are faithful too. as long as that teamw ins i don't give a ****. Every player on the jets can come take a **** on my lawn for all i care as long as they provide me with entertaining hockey to watch.

Posting on Twitter opens him up to public scrutiny. Did you really think that trying to reverse my question would make a point? Now how about you sharing why you want to defend his activity?

I don't care about the picture. But as a Jet fan I care that Kane has shown once again that he is dumb. We just made a 6 year investment in a player who is dumb. Almost every one else would know this picture would be jumped on from all angles. But some how he is one of the very few would would post it. We signed an idiot for 6 years. Its not often idoits turn out to have great careers.

I thought you were pretty clear in your disdain for modern society or at least the main stream media, but this issue seems to be more societal than a media. My bad if I misinterpreted or misrepresented you there.

Ethics are not black and white. Ethics deal with morals and morals aren't black and white. There are entire courses and books upon books dedicated to ethics. This wouldn't be needed if it was black and white. I find very few things in life are black and white outside of a chess board.

It is your opinion that Kane crossed a moral line here, many don't and won't share that view.


As for his misteps, what were they? Nothing has ever been confirmed. Nothing. Ever.
The idiot that took the "pay your bills" sign to the game apologized and his friend (the that told him bad stuff about Evander) deleted her posts off facebook.


I am not defending Evander or at least I am not trying to. I don't know Evander, nor do I want to. When it comes down to it, I really don't care what he does in his time off.

Likewise, you don't know Evander. You don't know what kind of teammate he is. You don't know anything about his character beyond what you can deduce from pictures and rumors.

Is it immoral to judge someone that you don't know without fully knowing the facts? Some would suggest yes.

This whole story is a non story IMO. Well, unless you are the players' PA association and you are trying to cry poor.


Anyways, what I am trying to say is...

Unless he is breaking the law, I don't care what Kane does I don't understand why anyone else does. So long as he scores goals and makes the Jets better, he is doing his job.

I don't have a problem with differing opinions or challenging an idea. I do have an issue when someone tries to paint a certain picture of me that isn't accurate.

I disagree about money. (And also "heat score" from my understanding of the term).

Because its an absolute non factor in anyones life. It's a picture of a 21 year old with some money that they fairly and legally earned and I don't like seeing people get unfairly insulted for no reason at all.

Geez, I thought the players got hosed in the last contract. Isn't that what we've been hearing from the NHLPA?

That last contract must've been real hard on these poor guys...

Kane - what an incredibly stupid thing to do you spoiled baby. Grow Up. If I was in an industry affected by this lockout I'd be absolutely furious.

My opinion is that we should leave the kid alone and avoid passing judgement on people because of their lifestyle choice. So long as Kane is living legal and he isn't hurting others, he is good in my book.

...and when I say good, I mean he is a good person. I don't know, but I won't speak out against him.

He may be a great guy, many people that know him (past coaches, teammates, etc) have said as much.

He may be a jerk, many people who don't know him have said as much.

It doesn't matter to me. The Jets don't pay him to be friendly and ultimately a little bit of arrogance can take an athlete a long long way. I want him to be a driven athlete. I want him to want to win. The rest is just noise.

All I see is Evander not really caring about the situation he and his bretheren are in right now. There have been hockey players who have done far worse than this. He may be socially immature and a cocky brat, but I'm certain he'll tow the party line when the season is resumed. this is barely worth recognition, never mind the argument you guys are having.

I apologize. I definitely wasn't trying to do that. You had taken issue with the mains stream media, rap videos and the way society views material possessions. I was reacting to that. I interpreted your comments to be about about society as a whole.

Misinterpretation is a me problem. Again, my apologies.

Anyone upset with Kane having that much money should remember they spend hundreds on NHL hockey tickets, jerseys and merchandise...and almost universally supported Chevy re-signing him at the FA deadline for a "deal" of a contract.

EDIT - so my point is we all fund the system, which is broken. But yes, he's just being dumb.

If this picture was taken while the NHL season was going on it would just result in an article saying how much of an idiot Kane is, but this isn't the case.
My point was that the lockout is hurting arena employees (etc.) anyways. Everyone should already know that the players are ridiculously loaded and putting those people out of work (along with the owners of course). The fact Kane took a picture doesn't change that. IMO the "negotiations" over how to split up billions of dollars, traveling all around the world (I think the PA held one of their conference in Barcelona if I'm not mistaken), and now taking it all to court is far more of a slap in the face to people harmed by the lockout than a picture posted by one guy with little involvement in the lockout. Hence my statement that anyone really offended by this must not have much perspective on the lockout to begin with.

Maybe the sweats were on because he celebrated his winnings by going to the gym. Maybe the picture wasn't posted at 4AM because he out partying all night but instead because he was just getting up to work out after his winnings the afternoon/evening before. Maybe it's photoshopped and his account was hacked and he condones neither money nor Vegas nor balconies nor wearing sweatpants outside the gym.

No reason? He put himself out there for anyone to criticize. Either he wanted it or he was too dumb to realize it would happen. IMO The kid needs a serious head shake.

It is possible he saw the poop storm and didn't care. It is also possible he was drinking and not thinking, but if he didn't see it coming, we already know why. Remember, he is Ray Charles (blind) to the haters.

I'd bet most hockey players are similarly dumb, at least at that age, and that you'd generally be a lot more disappointed than just this. They're not scholars, they were jocks growing up. They likely missed out on a lot of schooling (though they technically got it) because of their commitment to hockey. The only difference is some have people around them to help them mature and keep them grounded while some have people around them that encourage them to take pictures with their money.
