Someone is going to die in the name of professional sports. (Metta World Peace)

Posted by TopOfTheThread on April 23, 2012

What is it going to take? Someone is going to die in the name of professional sports.  Did you see the elbow Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) threw at James Harden! He could have killed him!

There was a movie many years ago, called The Deadliest Season.  In that movie a hockey player killed another player…. Here’s a summary:

Gerry Miller, a professional hockey player, gives in to internal and outside pressures and adopts a more aggressive style on the ice. During one particularly violent game a player on an opposing team dies, and the authorities charge Miller with manslaughter.

 And the viciousness of today’s sports are putting us right on the cusp of a death occurring during a sporting event.

Suspend Mr. Peace (ironic huh?) for the remainder of 20112 – 2012 season and the entire 2012 -2013 NBA season.  

File assault charges against Metta World Peace.

 Here are some violent sports videos.

(a)     Yesterday: Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) assaulting James Harden during an NBA game.
(b)    1977: Kermit Washington hitting Rudy T during an NBA game.
(c)     Dale Hunter hitting Pierre Turgeon during an NHL game.

(a)  and (c) are very similar in that they were both after a score and the other person had no way of knowing they were about to be the target of an assault.   Please take a look at the videos below.

Rangers lose to Penguins; Go down 2-0; Avery still a punk

Posted by TopOfTheThread on April 27, 2008

NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins won a closely fought 2-0 win over the New York Rangers. Penguins scored their first goal on a power play goal with the second goal being an open-netter off the boards.

It was a great game and everyone’s punk Sean Avery caused his typical problems hanging around the goal tender Mr Fleury.

Rumour has it that Sean Avery, Martin Brodeur, and Marc-Andre Fleury, are getting together tonight for dinner and a game of charades.
