Yep, justice served in this one instance.

One thing I could never understand is how an individual so clearly out of control and running high on drugs through an extended time period could be allowed to walk on bail on all the SEVERE counts he was up against.

Is our jurisprudence system desensitized? This guy was a walking danger and menace to anybody associated with him.

Which leads me to him walking into court yesterday with another gf hopelessly in love with him and sobbing at the situation as Braidwood is sentenced in court for completely violating another female. Makes you shake your head. Yeah, love is blind.

Almost the saddest thing in this dynamic is the lineup of young gf that would have this lout as a spouse.

Something very wrong.

Yeah. I recall as well that the guy they found him holding prisoner in the trunk of a car was also naked. Who knows what this guy is into or what he was thinking while on drugs...

Guy was an enforcer, watch sopranos and you'll know what he was thinking. Such a waste of a life. There were lots in the boxing world that thought if he could dedicate full time to boxing that he'd be a real legit fighter, but he just didn't.

Yeah, people were scratching their heads when this came up as a possibility a few months ago. A definitive noun would be nice...

It's about time a sports team dedicated their name to binary search tree.

AT least its not replicating a name of a team already in the league..

The cynical side of me suggests that the Red/Blacks refers to the balance sheet.

Ottawa Over/under would be a good name..

Maybe, but the All Blacks sounds more sensible then RedBlacks.

And I honestly and truly hope that the team's colours are Actually something other then Red and Black, because then it would make the utter ridiculousness of the name complete.

Nothing could be worse as a name than the Senators. Ottawa appears to have a market on weird, incongruent, or at least ambiguous names.

After every commercial break they could be called Le Rouge et le noir to appease the bilingual faction in Ottawa..maybe even throw in a Fleur for confederation ala Nordiques..

BOC would like the name...

Who gets that reference?

Are you referring to the West End Redbacks (a Cricket team in Australia)? Someone already touched on the missing noun which does make Redblacks somewhat odd.

Cracker Cats had to be the all time worst team name ever.

I understand the attempted parallel with that name but really it was a bigtime fail.
