If you don't like what Booth is saying/doing, don't look at his tweets.
Problem solved.

Can I have a nobel prize please?

people have opinions and will express them, I'm sorry that bothers you so much.

Can't believe you didn't bring up David Booth's hair and wardrobe. Now that's offensive.

Also, I'm pretty sure haters don't concern David Booth in the slightest. He has that dead-eyed christian obliviousness down pat.

While I'm not as morally outraged as the OP about it, I certainly agree with his general sentiment. If the most morally reprehensible player on our team is David Booth, I think we're pretty darn lucky.

I'm not a huge Booth fan as a player but who cares if the guy hunts in the off season? I'd rather have someone like him on the team then someone who commits crimes.

Also what did Botchford say about him?

if he could score goals people would be praising him for anything/everything. It's the fact that he sucks..

Dont care about his religious views though.
yeah.. maybe he should try shooting something that helps with his aim.

He can only hit his targets after they're baited and prone.

What PC and Canucker said are a much more hard-line stance to what I took, but I think they are right.

My point is that attacking Booth for his views is no better than preaching his, no one is put on a pedestal above the other.

He isn't breaking any laws and he's certainly free to pursue his off-ice interests. However, when he posts about them or his political views in social media he's going to invite criticism and debate. I'm more concerned about his on ice performance rather than his political or religious beliefs, but that's just me.

I was embarrassed after Bertuzzi broke Moore's neck on the ice.

This? Please.

This is Vancouver. This is the birthplace of Greenpeace and the heart and soul of the environmental movement in North America. We believe in inclusion, diversity, and the very firm separation of church and state. We don't like people who kill wild animals for fun or thump Bibles in our faces and tell us what we should believe or which god's the biggest and baddest. You don't like that? Airport's right south of the city beside Richmond. Easy cab ride, can get there on the new skytrain line within minutes from the downtown core.

When I go to Florida or Nashville and start twittering my left-wing, liberal dogma to all and sundry down there, that's when I'll feel sorry for poor little David Booth.

I don't give a rat's ass what Booth's religious beliefs are. Or Hamhuis's, or anyone else's, for that matter. I don't care if he's a Moonie, Mormon, Shiite Muslim, or Satanist. As long as he puts the biscuit in the basket, I profoundly do not give a flying ****. But know this: the INSTANT he or anyone else barges onto social media to preach one way or another, he becomes just another schmuck on the internet who's fair game just like the rest of the unwashed masses whether he or likes it or not. He does that, as far as I'm concerned, he might as well be one of the Leafs fans in the trade forum telling us all how Luongo's worth less that Kadri and a 2nd.

And that's that.

Don't like it? Don't do it, Booth. Smarten the **** up.
BARGES ONTO SOCIAL MEDIA ??! Bahahahahaahahahahahahahahahah

I found the owner of the internet everyone !! He's right here !

Don't like it, don't read it ! The onus is NOT on the poster online. It's on the reader. Even on this site. It's on you to block someone, as I'm doing in droves after this disgusting revelation.

And this IS definitely up there with other pathetic fan actions as the riot in my opinion. NO one deserves flack for their beliefs, no matter how many times they express them on THEIR social media platforms. There are certain things off limits to critism as a celebrity and this is one of them.

He was hunting in AB because what he was doing was illegal in BC.

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to address. The vocal minority that makes the rest of us liberals bad.

Interesting. You believe in free speech sort of?

BTW, I don't deserve any flack.

I don't like hunting but whatever, I have good friends who hunt and I eat meat so it's not a big deal to me but I don't like baiting or sitting up in trees to hunt animals...why not just lay out land mines? You'll even have your meat tenderized at the same time. Cowardly act.

With mines you might even have it cooked and ready to eat. Or bring a flame thrower.

Booth is shooting animals instead of improving his hockey skills. I'm free to hate him as much as I want.

Roberto Luongo plays poker in Florida.

Henrik Sedin is working on a new home.

But i'm sure hunting is the only leisure activity that keeps one from improving hockey skills.

This is spiralling out of control. I can see someone throwing a black bear onto the ice in celebration if Booth can ever score a goal.
