When has he been silent at all? He and his representives keep bringing up the incident in the media, ever since it happened. I guess the timing is right that Bertuzzi is traded? If anything, Bertuzzi's injury this season shows you that how easily a player can miss significant time due to injuries. Or is he there to speak out against headshots? You know, headshots like the one where Naslund got a concussion in a vulnerable position a few seasons back?

I think NHL should change their rule about charging/elbowing for safety. If a bodycheck is delivered so that the elbow is raised before or AFTER the hit, it's an elbow. If a bodycheck is delivered so that the shoulder level is higher AFTER the hit, it's a charge. Players should be discouraged to deliver checks upwards, they are dangerous.

Well i know what steve moore is breaking the silence about.....he's gay! He realized this was the only way to keep himself in the news so he wouldn't be forgotten.......3 years later. Move on steve! John Amaechi however, did ask for Steve Moore's number when he found out. Hey Steve, after he is done with you, you may be suing for more than just damages to your hockey game.. ;) And if you are really nice, you might be able to watch will and grace with him, you sissy. Why would the CBC waste their time with this K-HUNT. Like i would rather it goto a rerun of hockeyville, or a super sized episode of little mosque on the prairie. Steve Moore, look at your life, your brother has already amounted to more than you have, mainly because he was good enough to stay in the NHL and not see himself as a career minor leaguer. You smell steve, you smell.

Brian, can we please keep this garbage off the boards?

Besides being homophobic and sexist, it is flat out idiotic and reflects poorly on the board (and possibly you by extension should personal or media contacts wander by).

Well, what else did people expect Moore to say? He showed up basically to remind people how poor he is not being able to play while Bertuzzi is out with an injury. The poor guy is also hoping that a judge will award him and his family millions of dollars, an amount that would lead you to think he's not able to live a normal life, even though he can pretty much do anything except play professional hockey, something he's not very good at before his injury. I think he's done nothing that deserves the attention or respect of the public.

I find it ridiculous that nobody in the media isn't questioning his PCS.

Part of me feels sorry this guy- in the end he never asked to get pummeled by Bert per se, and I can understand why he doesn't want to forgive Bert- That's his right and he's entitled to that.

But this "breaking the silence" and the other times he has filed motions and sued Bert is always timed perfectly, either when Bert is went to the Olympics, or when he got traded and is trying to move on. His people never want anyone to forget he is the victim and his civil suit plays a big part in that.

I still get pretty sick of some of the hypocrites out there they called Bert a criminal for what he did, but will go around praising players that stick up for their teammates.

In the end nothing would have happened if Granato didn't play Moore and he owned up for what he did. 9/10 times the same thing happens and no one gets seriously hurt and everyone is saying what a team player so and so is.

Anyone listen to Tucker the other day and have it remind you of Brad May?

I watched the CBC Interview last night and went away with even less respect for Steve Moore. I do feel bad for the guy, don't get me wrong but I couldn't help thinking that the interview was merely a ploy to help his case in swindling $19 million from the Canucks in his lawsuit.

The part of the interview I found infuriating was when he said that "My hit on Markus Naslund was clean". CBC then showed the clip twice and it still looked pretty dirty to me. Since when is a elbow to the skull a clean hit? Naslund was knocked unconscious and suffered a nasty facial laceration. A clean hit is shoulder to shoulder not that garbage. If Naslund had two broken vertebrae from that hit would Moore be looked at as a goon like Bertuzzi? I could go on forever about it but I won't.

I am sorry but Moore needs to move on and get his life back on track. He seriously has some psychological trauma in trying to put this behind him. I am sure that it has been a very difficult time, but he just does not seem right in the head. Unfortunately all I got out of the interview was the vibe that this was strictly a financially motivated move to make money that he would have never made as a player. I'll bet you he will be able to put this behind him once the Canucks cut him a $19 million cheque.

Ok, This got me really mad listening to the interview on the team morning show. He says he has never recieved a private apology. How about the many phone calls Bert claims to have made, none of which were accepted. If I remember correctly I recall bert attempting to see him in hospital, which also was denied by the Moore family.

I started to feel bad for the guy at one point.... untill I thought about all the low-ball scummy tactics he's used in the media. making the big hub-ub when Bert was named to team Canada, just to remind everyone once again, at every available opportunity. Now that Bert's in the news again with his trade to Dtown, he's back. What makes it worse is it doesn't seem to be from a humanitarian stand point, he's not trying to help prevent similar situations from occuring, or anything remotely posative. It always comes accross as more of a money grab and politicing in the media with the thought of his lawsuit first and foremost.

He won't talk about forgiving Bertuzzi. Has he seen the tape? Has anyone pitched the idea that hey, maybe it WASN'T Bert who fractured a vertabrae? Sure Bert knocked him cold, and he probably got a nasty concussion from hitting his head on the ice. Not to make light of those injuries, they would have been serious indeed, but perhaps it was when two Avs players dogpilled on the two of them, mashing Steve's arched neck and face into the ice, and then sliding about 3-4 feet afterwards that caused the serious neck injury! This whole things makes me furious.

On one hand I do feel for Moore, he didn't deserve to have this happen to him, but at the same time neither did Bertuzzi. It was a freak accident when it comes down to it. Bert threw the punch from behind, that was his mistake. he let his emotions get away from him. He did not, however, intened to knock him cold with 1 punch, nor did he "drive his face into the ice" intentionally, he had a hold of his jersey so when Moore dropped like a stone he fell on top of him. Then he was joined by a dogpile of avs players.

Now Bert should be responsible for his actions, and I do feel a punishment was due, and that Moore should be compensated for his losses. However, they manor in which Steve, his family and his lawyers have gone about the whole situation is a disgrace comparable to the fiasco on the ice. his parents want how many millions in damages because of the trauma of watching it happen on TV? Ok then all Canucks fans should be suing Steve for watching our Captain and team leader's head bounce off the ice a month prior on TV. A bit extreme perhaps but I'm a bit worked up, what can I say :evil:

Steve's brother has been talking about headshots to the league, well what was it that started the whole Mess? A rookie, getting 6-8 min a game took a run at our star player and team captain while he was in an extremely vulnerable position. Elbow to the head, feet off the ice. Had Nazzy been knocked cold as easily as Moore and then Moore and fellow canucks dog-pilled on that situation, we could be having an entirely different discussion about Mr.Moore.

I beleive Bert was sincere in his public apology and the tears that followed. Bert has shown many times that he feels much remorse about the situation, but for god sakes let the man move on! He's paid his price, the last remaining hurdle is how much money Steve will get. Let them figure it out as grown men and not turn things into this huge circus and demonizing of Bertuzzi!

Here's a little perspective. Watching these clips, man there have been some nasty plays in the NHL's history. Bert's is up there sure, but the malice and intent to injure is just not there with the Bert hit like it is in some of these clips.

II agree with WCE on this one, that post was pretty brutal. No real point, just derogatory comments. It's not being "PC" It's just being intelligent about a conversation :)

I am also onside with WCE for this one ... keeping our standards high and site clean from these types of derogatory comments is extremely important ... its what makes us a better site than others.

If one is so inclined to do so though, there are other websites individuals can go to post that type of trash talk.... just not here.

I agree with WCE but I dont' think the thread itself is a problem. I believe it's possible for a mod to remove one post instead.
