About time someone took responsibility for something they said instead of blaming others for blowing it out of proportion.

I think it is a loss to us as fans.  Despite his stupid comments, it was nice to read some of his thoughts as a player. The comment that sticks out in my head is when he was asked if he remembers highlight goals against him and he said “only Datsyuk’s goal”.  That’s a side of the athlete that media doesn’t really portray to readers.

Exactly J.J….it’s a loss to anyone that gets tired of listening to any athlete from any sport give boring uninsightful interviews.  No wonder everyone follows Paul Bissonette (me included), he talks about pounding dickheads at bars, and how many times he got laid by having his dates watch the DVD ‘Planet Earth’.  He was actually banned from Twitter for calling someone a “Commie”...and that received less attention that Ellis did.

Ellis should have just said ” i make a lot of money, but I still have to be careful what i do with it, and how I manage it.”

If he wants to give up that Ferrari, I’d let him keep it at my home.

Why does the loss have to be enormous to be regrettable?

Clearly, what we need are more athletes afraid to speak their mind outside of the normal, canned quotes that we’ve all come to love and adore.
