and btw, it pissed me off more than anyone to hear Keith saying that crap, but will you fookin' pansies shut up with this internet outrage over it? Shit worse than that gets said all the damn time. If you want to watch choirboys, then put on some pink tutus and go watch ice dancing, you pansies.
Wakey Wakey Backes was indeed classeless... but it just made NHL lore. I suggest all Blues fans wear the shirt as a rallying point.
I get what you're saying, but I think it's just natural reaction. Captain gets hurt on dirty hit . . . in the playoffs . . . by a hated rival . . . and they laugh about it. I don't care what fanbase it is, the guy yelling Wakey Wakey is gonna get called out on message boards. There might be worse things said during the game by both teams (although this really was low), but him getting called out on message boards is just how it works IMO.
You know, I think it all comes down to the fact that IF Keith actually said "Yes, I said it" instead of playing the forgetful memory game people may still hate him, but have some respect for the guy because he was honest. He can't even do that. Says everything I need to know about him.
Maybe. I think playing forgetful just added a layer to it though. If he admitted it, I don't think we would be like, "Wow, that was classy of him to own it." 100% of our bitching would be about him saying instead of 95% about him saying it and 5% about him playing dumb.
Thing is, everyone's bitching about him saying it anyway. Now we're complaining about him both saying it AND being a liar so from hereonin, anything he says or does is going to be held in contempt. Like it matters to us, but you know, if he was a halfway decent human being, it'd matter to him. And it doesn't, unless someone keeps asking him about it and he "bristles" up and keeps claiming to have a faulty memory. Scum of the Earth.
