Canceling Mike Milbury

from Phil Mushnick of the New York Post,

Repent, sinners!

Well, not all of you. After all, TV judges not the sin but the sinner.

Why did NBC hire Mike Milbury if not for his lure as a player and coach given to brutish, caveman displays and wild words? NBC was eager to exploit him as a draw.

But now NBC has drawn a specious line on Milbury, removing him at least through the Stanley Cup playoffs, as a member of the He-Man Women Haters’ Club, Alfalfa presiding.

In this mad rush to demand unconditional tolerance attached to unconditional intolerance, Milbury was “caught” on the air speaking of teams’ COVID 19 “bubbling” as a means to devote full attention to hockey, “Not even any women to disrupt your attention,” he said.

Did he say that indelicately? No. As a wise guy? I don’t know. It didn’t sound that way, more like a statement of fact. Regardless, Milbury was canceled as a crude misogynist.

people really need to get a sense of humor.
I didn’t hear Milbury say what he said .. I was watching CBC that night ... but I read what he said and I probably would have gotten a good chuckle out of it.

Even gruff and grumpy Milbury tries to make a joke now and then and went with a subject his fellow athletes could relate to.

When is this over sensitive, hyper PC bullshit going to end ??

you can’t touch somebody ... you can’t look at them crooked ... unless you want your professional career to come to an abrupt end.

Lighten up people.  find your sense of humor.  laugh a little ... i promise, it won’t hurt you.
we all need a good laugh at this particular moment in time.

Maybe this will give Milbury an opportunity to go to CBC/Sportsnet and give Brian Burke a run for his grumpy money ... LOL
