Apology Is Necessary

from Mike Milbury of CBC,

The NHL and its chief of hockey operations made mistakes. Those mistakes have impacted Marc Savard. Call the guy and tell him it never should have happened.  Apologize to the PA and the fans. Hockey people know Campbell’s reputation and if it’s as strong as the league statements of support would have you believe, then there is plenty of political capital to use to get by this.

And you owe your son an apology, Colin. You have put him in a very uncomfortable situation in the Boston clubhouse. Greg seems like the type of man who can handle the heat but just the same, he deserves the call. After all, his dad’s comments were about a teammate.

And enough with the “we did nothing wrong, we are men of integrity” spiel. A simple admission of making a mistake will do. Please don’t tell me that the emperor is wearing a beautiful robe today. We all know better.

Someone either hacked Mike Milbury’s posting privileges or he dropped acid this afternoon. Those are the only possible things that could explain this.

Yeah, I was also confused by this.  I have never known Milbury to make any sense, let alone this much.  I wonder if he is paying someone to write his blog for him?  Regardless, it’s a pretty good assessment of the situation.  I need a shower now.

No kidding where did this come from, you both could be right, but I was thinking someone hit Milbury over the head with a shoe.

I don’t think even an apology to the fans, at this point, will suffice.

Let’s not forget Milbury does work for NESN.

Mandingo - I agree with you completely.  The idea of Milbury doing acid is very funny.

Someone check to see if hell is freezing over, I am on the same side of an argument as mike milbury?

What’s that old saying?: “don’t believe anything you read and only half of what you see”


  I would be much more convinced if milbury was standing in front of me when he supposedly made these remarks, but if true, kudos to him.

Could this be a fake Mike Milbury, like the Fake Brian Burke twitter account ?

Paul hit it on the head.  Milbury works for NESN on Bruins telecasts, working from the desk.  That’s all you need to know.

Regardless…. he’s friggin’ right.  Doesn’t matter why he has the opinion, it’s the right one (for once).

There’s a current trend of apologizing every little thing, or if someone feels minor discomfort about something written or said. I don’t really support that trend.

By all means, Campbell should call Savard and his son. But as a fan, I don’t need any apologies, and the notion seems ridiculous to me.

Wait, what? Mike Milbury said something that makes sense? o_O Next thing you know Garth Snow and Charles Wang will no longer be involved with the Islanders…

Please don’t tell me that the emperor is wearing a beautiful robe today. We all know better.

Besides, Milbury’s more of a shoe man.

But yes, he’s right.
