TooToo Bites Wright...

According to the Columbus Dispatch, during the game last night Tootooo got a little hungry and bit Wright....

Quote:
On the way to the bench, Letowski leveled Tootoo with a check. Immediately, Wright grabbed Tootoo in what was the gameís umpteenth scrum.

Wright came way with bite marks on his right pinkie.

Wright: "He (Tootoo) bit me. Thatís why I was snapping. What was I supposed to do when a guy is biting me? Thatís ridiculous. Iíve never been associated with anything like that in my life."

Tootoo: "He (Wright) was giving me a facewash. There was a lot of stuff going on. I donít know what was going on. Iím pretty positive I didnít (bite Wright). But what am I supposed to do when he has a hand in my face. It happened so fast, I donít know what happened. . . . Iím just assuming heís trying to start something."
Tootoo doesnt even deny doing it. He doesnt "no I didnt do that..." he says he is pretty positive he didnt and that he really doesnt know what happened...

You mean you cant remember if you bite someone?

Looks like the NHL will review the incident, as well as Jamie Allison's glove theft :

Tootoo is a clown and if he doesn't watch himself someone is going to knock him senseless.

I guess Tootoo was craving some of that whale blubber he gets back home.

"He's from way up north - that's how they eat up there, I guess," Wright told the Tennessean after the game.
Did he just accuse Tootoo of cannabalism?

It doesn't matter what your role is, or if you're trying to get under other people's skin. Biting another player is disgraceful.

Of course it is, but I think the point is that *IF* he did bite him, it certainly wasn't intentional.

Not sure what you find so funny about that suggestion. The longer he's in the league the more chance somebody is going to go after him. Not sure how you can believe he will magically dodge all attempts at retribution by those he's pissed off. It's just a matter of time and those Nashville fans who think he'll never be called upon to be accountable for his actions by some tough players are living in a dream world.

How about, his mouth was open, he closed it, and Wright decides to give him a facewash and happens to move his hand by Tootoo's mouth while it's closing.

I mean, come on.....Wright's talking about a bite mark on his PINKIE finger. What is he, a little girl? If he was really upset about it, he should have dropped the gloves or otherwise tried to settle it right there. But no.....he goes off to the media to show off his wounded pinkie.

Think about it....if you're really pissed off and want to bite somebody, are you going to nibble on their pinkie finger? I don't think so.

Have you seen the finger? Oh wait, you were there for the situation right, so you know exactly how it happened, not only that but you can tell from a few scattered facts coupled with your homer bias that Tootoo is the innocent party here.

Gimme a break. You just made a bunch of stuff up.

As for Tootoo being accountable someone is gonna pound his face one of these days. All he needs to do is drop the gloves with the wrong guy and he's toasted, I think thus far any tougher fighters or major enforcers have given him a bit of leeway due to his size and who he is (the mass, let me add unfounded, media hype), but once the novelty wears off and he really starts bugging them --- he's gonna get his.

Nah, I think that was Wright's way of insulting an entire culture. Way to take the high road Tyler!

Darn, sounds as though I missed a really chippy game; I miss all the good ones.

Glove theft? Funny.

Tootoo chomping on raw flesh? Not funny.

Actually, that was Tyler Wright's quote....if you go back and read the original articles, you'll see that he held up a wounded pinkie finger to the media.

Saving face for the 1 hit takedown? Give me a break. This is pathetic.

I'm not a Nashville fan but it's pretty clear to anyone who doesn't have a bias against the guy that he did it completely by accident and didn't even realize. Wright gave him the face wash so Wright probably had his pinkie in Tootoo's mouth accidentaly..

You people are making way to much of a deal out of this...

Thank you....exactly.

I will say, as a Nashville fan, that Allison should be suspended. Yeah, some jerk stole his glove....but you never, ever go after a fan at a game like that.

Not suprised by any of this. Tootoo is bush league...plain and simple.

The funniest thing is when people say "You would love to have him on your team". Umm...... No, I would not.

Seriously. When is Tootoo going to fight someone that knows how to might instead of these journeymen?

BTW, Letwoski smoked him pretty good on that hit, and yet hardly a mention of it in any Jackets related thread. However, if Tootoo would have laid him out, there'd be a thread about it here on the main board plus two or three on the Preds board, all threads complete with video and pictures. Says something about the fans.
