But what he said tonight was inexcusable and is one of the reasons why gay athletes everywhere stay closeted and often live lives of torment
Today, Andrew Shaw of the Chicago Black hawks professional Hockey club, was suspended 1 playoff game for making a homophobic slur while sitting in the penalty box after being penalized for what he felt was an unjust penalty. Not only was it at a crucial point in the game, this was a playoff .He was suspended for 1 game for His actions. I am not a Chicago fan. In fact, I am the furthest thing from a Chicago fan as I am a Vancouver Canucks fan.
This is what I am curious and even mad about and that is the term “Gay”. Mr. Hine, you are not GAY. You are not happy and in fact, from your statements about other “Gay” athlete’s not coming out of the closet tells me that you are definitely unhappy. You are a Homosexual. Gay is another homophobic term, just like F*got, Q*eer and all the other gross terms people call the homosexual community.
The homosexual world is far too sensitive about being called a name and in my book, the term gay is just as bad. The old saying “stick and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me” does not apply to this world you live in anymore. Why should anyone take you seriously. I know why, The Black Hawks gave you a job due to sexual orientation and not for your writing, intelligence and reporting skill. You were waiting for a juicy bit of news to happen and you justify your acts by doing the same thing as the one you accused by using the term gay to describe your community. Here is his tweet :
This statement alone shows his immaturity and lack of sensitivity and lack of intelligence. What people do is their own business and should be kept to themselves. The fact that you want every homosexual person to come out of the closet shows just how stupid and insensitive you really are only about is having more your own in your small little homosexual world.
It is my opinion that he also used a homophobic statement and should also be brought up for disciplinary action. Who determines what is a homophobic term anyway. Just because you are homosexual and your friends are homosexual does not mean you can choose what is a homophobic term or not. There are always two sides to every story.
Now I can say, as an ex athlete and coach, umpire and referee for more years than I want to say that a lot worse has been said on the field of battle than homophobic slurs . For me calling someone a M*ther F*cker is far worse. But that statement can be heard a number of times in almost every single adult game.Even the calling of someone a B*itch can be construed as more offensive and these statements and so many more happen so many times during a contest in every sport that its is not even funny. Why is this any worse?
Now the only reason this is brought to the forefront is because an overly sensitive immature homosexual writer heard Shaw’s comments because he was given preferential seating due to the fact that he is a writer for the Black Hawks.
The writer, Chris Hine @ChristopherHine, had to report this statement that wasn’t even directed at him, but at some one on the ice. I may be wrong but I do not think so, but it is apparent to me that Ms. Hine has never played a contact sport and has no idea how emotional a highly contested game is. Things are said and done and after the game everything is supposed to be left on the ice, field of play or in the locker room. But in instances like this, Mr Hine is using this opportunity to make another homophobic statement and has jumped on the sensitive train just like so many other media writers who want to include gay acts into almost every tv show and movie to the point that I have become disgusted with many of these shows and networks that show them.
Is not anything sacred anymore. Can we not make fools out of other people by putting insensitive minorities into a position of sharing their opinions and influencing others and allowing those statements to go public.
Manny Pacqiuo speaks from his heart and his religious beliefs and it cost him millions of dollars and I believe him to be an honest individual and his is punished for being honest..
I do not think that this kind of insensitive action can be justified because a small minority of people are offended. Anything said can at sometime become offensive to someone. Chris Hine’s statements offend me and I know for a fact that his statements offend far more people than Andrews Shaw’s statement on the ice if it were not made public by a overly sensitive homosexual.
The fact that Hine does not have sex with women leaves me satisfied that his gene pool will end with him..
I dare you to challenge me on this.
Do you really need an illegal nanny? Do you really need an illegal gardener? How about an illegal worker for your legal business? No you don’t! What you need to do is suck it up and hire legal workers that pay taxes.
Are you really that lazy and greedy that you would sell out your own country?
The U.S.A is being invaded on a subversive level. What better way to take down a country than by disrupting the economy from the inside. The more we spend on supporting illegals the less we have to support our own people.
We throw people in jail for a gram of marijuana because it is illegal but we cannot deport people who are here illegally breaking the law for just standing on American soil.
Businesses that use illegals need to be dealt with. People who hire illegals for meaningless chores just to keep up with the Jones need to be dealt with.
When you drive past a Lowe’s or Home Depot and see 50 illegal aliens waiting to work at higher than minimum wage, do you not see a problem here. We have millions of Americans out of work because we choose to hire and illegal to avoid paying taxes because of greed. You too are breaking the law. Anyone that hires an illegal alien with knowledge that they are here illegally are breaking the law too. Do you want to risk getting a criminal record for greed?
Our attitudes must change and we have to pull our heads out of the ground and actually look at what is happening to the United States of America. Many 911 terrorists were here illegal. We went after Bin Laden with vengeance. Thousands of police men are killed by illegals and we do nothing major .
You the Americans the support illegals by hiring them, voting for politicians that will do nothing and those of you that just want to give a better life are, in my opinion, traitors to their country. You are at fault. You who do not want to make marijuana legal allow violent Cartels to make more money and are giving their illegals more money to buy guns to use on Legal citizens and our Law Enforcement. YOU ARE ALL GUILTY OF BREAKING MANY LAWS OR YOU ARE GUILTY OF SUPPORTING TERRORIST TYPE ACTIVITIES.
The money we give them leaves this country at an alarming rate. Our financial infrastructure is out of balance. We give welfare to illegal mothers. We give them food stamps, housing and treat them like legal Americans and it cost hundreds of millions of dollars. We have full penitentiaries over run by law breaking, police killing, drug dealing criminals because we failed to stop them at the border.
Too many Americans cannot see the big picture and weigh what is right for their country and want to see them have a better life. This is all well and good but there is slippery slope as we start to descend upon a future of financial despair as our nation debt to China rises by the minute and we send troops to other countries to protect their borders. What about our borders?
In the U.S., illegal aliens cost the states 333billion dollars in 2006. I am guessing it is about 3 times as much here in 2014. More Americans are killed by illegals than any war we are in now. In the mean time we have more homeless Americans because we cannot take care of our own. The break down of the cost of illegals is even more surprising. The cost of incarceration, the judicial system, drugs and the damage they do, and the government support given to illegals is off the charts.
What we need is a non partisan government two party endorsed panel that makes decisions based on what is good for the country and swayed for votes and political party agendas. A panel that say if we need to put 20,000 troops on the border, then we do it. A panel that says we need to remove and deport anyone that is illegal in this country with a larger immigration police force to do this, then we do it.
If we do not make changes to our illegal alien policy very soon, the job of doing this will be more costly in the future. This is an invasion pure and simple.
The sign on the statue of liberty “Give us your poor etc etc etc” has to be done but do it legally. It does not matter if an illegal has been here for 30 years or 30 minutes, the are still breaking the law.
This what it is all about. The law and the consequences of breaking the law. It is time to enforce these laws
Its been a few years since I been here and the main reason is that in my small life, I have a lot to do and the older I get the more I have to do. I seems that venting is a good way to relieve stress and lately I have been stressed a lot because I started listening and reading and watching the news. the news again. Here is what I learned.
I have learned Americans are hypocrites by nature. Including myself.
I have learned but always knew that Greed runs the government and the government runs the people and people by nature again, are greedy.
I have learned that WE WILL RUIN THE PLANET
I have learned that the Media is its own enemy.
I have learned that Population control is non existent creates a tricked down effect on everything which in effect is the root to all the above 5 things that I have learned.
In next few weeks I will offer my opinion and use some common sense values to them all. I may offer true solutions because I have no knowledge of how the inner circle works or nor am I privy to all the inside facts. Without these I can only give opinions on a common man point of view using common sense as a guiding light.
I am still mad. Evidently, grown men are 182 million apart and they just can’t say enough is enough, lets just split the difference. This tell me that neither side really cares about the fans that much. We are the suckers, the losers and the ones that sort of support it all. However, there is nothing we can do short of stop buying anything NHL sponsers.
However, the ones that really miss out are the charities the NHL has committed to. No hockey means no revenue for these charities from the 50/50 game night draws to the toss coins into the united ways bins at the counters of the hockey rink.
I care for hockey and will watch it when it ever gets back but this time, no jerseys, no t-shirts, no hockey cards or memorabilia. No buys products advertised on tv, or going to the games. I will support the bars and clubs that show the games but other than that, my confidence in the league has dwindled. The third lockout in 10 years is just too much. I had junior hockey to get me through the other years but this year really hurts the more.
Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson has signed with Jokerit of the Finnish Elite League, his agent Don Meehan confirmed to ESPN.com.
How would Ottawa feel if their star 22 year old got injured and missed the season if the lockout was stopped and there was peace in the NHL?
Here is a partial list of players and their league and teams. This list will be updated. There are many streaming sites that broadcast these teams and their games on the internet. Unfortunately, they are n Europe times which means you must view them in the morning and early afternoon. It is even worse for us west coast hockey fans. East coast hockey fans have the luxury of viewing games that may start as late as 2pm. I cannot give you links to the streaming sites but in this case Google is your friend. Remember with these streaming sites.’IF YOU ARE ASKED TO UPDATE YOUR FLASH PLAYERS. dO NOT DO THIS, AS IN MOST CASES THEY ARE A VIRUS OF A MAJOR PAIN IN THE ASS. you should only need sopcast or a site link. As you get used to the sites and their times, it will be easier to find the one that work best for your favorite team or players

I compare Gary Betman to the Republican party. They never want to take responsibility for their mistakes and they want the little guy to bail them out.
Yea you think hockey players are pampered millionaires but most of them make less than $500,000.00 a year after toiling in the minor league system making under 100 grand with a career life of less than 6 years with a deteriorating body that will plague them the rest of their life. This lockout is not about the rich now but the lowest factions later.
The real reason for the lockout is that the small market teams need money. They get paid by NBC no matter what so they will actually make money while the lockout is going. The large market teams get paid loo and they will break even or make a profit anyway so it is a win win situation for the owners. Actually its a win win win situation for the Owners.
When the new CBA is signed the players are the ones who will not only get less money in the future but will roll back all the effort they made last lockout. In fact, Bettman is still pissed that he lost in the last lock out
MY SOLUTION FOR THE FANS
A grassroots boycott of NBC needs to be started to force them not to pay the NHL ownership group while there is no hockey.
WORSE CASE SCENARIO THAT PROBABLY MAY HAPPEN IS FOR THE TOP TEIR PLAYERS TO GO TO THE RUSSIAN HOCKEY LEAGUE OR THE KHL AS ITS CALLED.
Here is what is happen according to my crystal balls. Two of the best of the league will get injured playing in another league. These will be serious injuries. Now the owners have really lost something.
Can you imagine if Ovechikin stayed in Russia? Jagr retires, Crosby goes down with a Knee and Stamkos gets a concussion a couple of weeks into the season.
Remember the KHL is a legue that is not backed by high powered lawyers and just had a whole team die in a plane crash due to their lack of concern for player safety on and off the ice.
WOW I FEEL BETTER
I DARE YA TO CHALLENGE ME ON THIS
