Put It To Bed Boys

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

Boys, boys, boys. Let’s all grow up here.

Lots of name-calling going on between Don Cherry and a group of former NHL enforcers these days, but not a whole lot being said, at least not much more than the kind of insults and taunts you might hear in a schoolyard.

Now, maybe we shouldn’t expect more. But maybe we should. See, the issues of fighting, concussions and related depression are serious, serious issues, and the way in which these folks are dealing with them is simply trivializing the problem.

Now, for starters, that’s enough with the lawsuit talk. First of all, nobody should publish stories about somebody “threatening” to sue. It’s a story when the papers are filed.

Well said Damien. This is getting ridiculous.

All these guys did was send a letter saying their examining their legal options. Someone else decided that was newsworthy.

I don’t understand how Cox can declare it a non issue, and then proceed to give his (unsolicited) advice on how they ought to conduct themselves.
