Reaction To Nash Comments

via Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic,

Nash, a former player and current broadcaster with Fox Sports Arizona, called Torres’ hit on Hossa “as clean of a hit as you’re going to get” during Tuesday’s game.

Since then, Nash has received death threats and a slew of insults via Twitter.

The Blackhawks were upset, as were their fans. Nash, who once played for Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville with the St. Louis Blues, told “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000 in Chicago that he received death threats for calling the play a clean hit. Nash recanted those remarks after viewing more replays of the incident.

I am glad to hear Nash recanted from his original call and I can understand he probably got caught up in the play.  Watch the original call from the Phoenix broadcast crew if you missed it last night.

added 3:12pm, from Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago,

“You have to love the Twitter world,” Nash told “The Waddle and Silvy Show” Wednesday morning on ESPN 1000. “I had a few people mentioning they’ll be meeting me for breakfast, so we’ll see how that goes.”

The Coyotes won 3-2 in overtime, and lead the series 2-1. Game 4 is Thursday night in Chicago.

Nash said he told Coyotes personnel about the threats.

“I mentioned it to our guy,” Nash said. “It’s fine, it’s fine. It is what it is.”

The people making death threats are the ones against violence. Am I correct on that one? Hard to keep score with the amount of stupidity going on.

Anyone have a different link to the Phoenix feed? I can’t update this machine at work to Flash 11.

Ahh, I guess the dozen replays he was watching in super slo-mo when he made his retarded remarks didn’t offer the same angles as the ones everyone else watched.

If you don’t already know, then there’s no point in trying to explain it to you.
