The OHL has suspended Peterborough's Greg Betzold & Belleville's Jake Marchment 15 games each for sexist, abusive language towards 2 women

Only got suspended once the story hit the news. Before that it sounds like the teams were going to handle things "internally"

Oh...and there's this...

One of the women, a 17-year-old, involved in the OHL comment controversy tells me she is now receiving threats online.

Awful and the fact that they were "private" comments that went public is no excuse. Should be sent on some sort of Sensitivity training, none of this deal with it internally bull.

The ability to screen cap texts on your phone has ruined anyone's right to privacy, not that I condone such behavior. I'm just glad when I grew up there was no way for me to keep record of all the dumb things I did or said.

I have no idea why athletes or any celebrities engage in Social Media. It is a no win situation.

I know agents probably encourage interaction with fans but... it is a ticking time bomb.

Pretty dumb on his part, keep your fame private on those things. But 15 games? Thats a little crazy.

Everyone knows what Tinder is for and I've seen far worse. Not condoning it by any means, people (like him) are despicable human beings and seemingly entitled dirt bags... but its Tinder, theres plenty of 'em. Its not like he said it to some girl on a Food Network website.

With that said, people in the spotlight like him should be held to a higher standard and I think the punishment was just. Throw in some sensitivity training too, but lets not pretend his career will be ruined by it.

What I don't understand, and perhaps it's because I am old...

For thousands of years people never had phones or social media. Now, people can't walk down the street without being on their phone, texting or tweeting. It's ridiculous. Put the damn phone down.

Pretty simple really, if you wouldn't say it to someone's face don't say it over text/email/tinder/grinder/whatever.

really freaking dumb and classless but this isn't worth 15 games. There's no way this is worse than attacking a player, which almost never results in a 15 game suspension.

"Babe I play in the O" honestly sounds like some sort of satire on the athlete/jock culture. It's cringe-worthy.

EDIT: I guess I should address the overwhelming sexism in the conversation, but maybe I'm numb to such garbage. "Babe I play in the O" really just jumped out at me as it seems so awkward.

I agree. His career will not be affected long term but why have an account with your real name? If you really NEED () to be on social media, be discreet and protect yourself. I like what Pierre McGuire said (paraphrasing), "I have never been on Twitter(?) and anyone who says they are me is lying". Good for him

Everyone acts like they are innocent of ever doing anything wrong. That's a pile of manure. It is just new media wants to put there spin on everything nowadays. They try to control what society does or says. These are kids and noe they are being treated as if they were in the NHL or NFL and wife beaters. Crazy.

Or we have done wrong but learned from our mistakes. He will learn from this mistake and never do it again.

It's disgusting behavior. 15 games seems excessive but it's how people learn. If he got 3 games, what would that have done?

He's embarrassed now. He won't do it again.
