Downie

Post by ClamRussel »

How the FREAKING Hell does he NOT get suspended for SUCKER PUNCHING a guy while there's not one but TWO linesmen in there holding them......then he skates by the box all smug & laughing about it.

What the %#$@#???!?!?

Nice message Campbell you pussy. Wow. He just didn't have the balls to suspend Downie again (4 games back from his prior suspension mind you) because then he would have had to suspend Stevens due to their prior warning abo any other suspensions. How the heck can Campbell justify that? He punches a held man in the EYE and thats a 'hockey play,' ...huh?

Whatever.

Bush league 70s Broadstreet bullies are back.

Mark my words, Downie will be the most hated player before long & make Cooke look like a most sportsmanlike candidate.

The decision on Downie is more than questionable, imo this had to be at least a 2 game suspension. I wonder what would had happenend if Blake was injured seriously...

Btw maybe Hatcher gets an internal suspension for knocking out Lupul. :lol:

The 70's Broadstreet Bullies didn't do what Downie does, Schultz and the boys did it to your face, not the cheap shit that downie does.

Downie has a lot of talent, after sucker punching Blake he had a shit eating grin, what a punk. Some of the Flyer vets should pull him a side and sucker punch him in the shower, stick a bar of soap somewhere it doesn't shine and teach the kid some respect.

If it was the other way around and Blake had suckered Downie I could see the argument for no suspension. It would still be borderline but I could see it. But it wasn't Blake it was Downie. The prior record of the offender has to come into the equation.

Campbell didn't miss an opportunity to send a message. He sent one loud and clear, it was just the wrong one. Even a game or two would have let this punk know that "we are watching you and you won't get away with risking the health of your fellow players."

Think they were just a little wary of suspending yet another Flyer, and thus possibly having to discipline the team as has been suggested in the past? No doubt they chickened out, whatever the reason.

Bobby Clark on "off the record" said Blake deserved it for statements made after Downies first suspension.

Blake had said that Downie deserved a 1 year or a lifetime suspension.

In Clarks world that warrents a cheap shot.

If Campbell and the league really wanted to make an example of someone to prevent more of this shit the Flyers have given them every reason to do so, but of course they don't want to.

Clarke's comments make it appear as if Blake was talked about thus making the cheap shot a pre-meditated action. Not only should Downie be suspended but so should Clarke. What a dumb-ass.....time & time again, from Kharlamov to Roger Neilson it just never ends with him.

Clarke is an idiot. I guess in his mind Blake sucker-eyed Downie's fist. :lol:

Good point clam

With the allegations against Crawford in the Bertuzzi lawsuit you wpuld think that:

A Clarke would know better than to say shit like this

B The league would be on him for saying this shit

To me hockey is the fastest most exciting sport out there,to see it run by a "old boys club" with their arrogant heads planted way up their asses which Clarke seems to be part of cheapens the game considerably,

Pathetic and disaapointing

I just hope when the day comes that some one cold cocks Downie as it surely must, Clarke has the jam to say, well that's the life of the hockey player, you shout your mouth off some one will drill you

Clarke isn't the brightest bulb in the batch. At least Clarke is with the FLyers and not us.

If you remember Ken Linsmen played for Philly and he has to be as big a chicken shit who ever played in this league. He was famous for cheapshots then skating away while his team stuck up for him so...Philly has always had a piece of shit playing for them and Downie fits right in.
