I always enjoyed Milbury’s rants during NHL Overtime, but you knew just watching this guy, he was bound to explode soon enough. Between his biased opinions with Keith Jones and his outrageous opinions on players, it was really just a matter of time until he blew the puck up!
BUT ON A PUCKING 12 YEAR OLD BOY MILBURY?
I always thought maybe Jeremy Roenick or Keith Jones would scrap with Milbury live on TV, or Milbury would eventually be fired. Nope, not even close. Even better, he assaults a 12 year old pee wee hockey player who was arguing with his son.
ASSAULT? COME THE PUCK ON PEOPLE! HE WAS MAKING THIS YOUNG HOCKEY PLAYER A BETTER MORE TOUGHER YOUNG MAN!
According to the NY Times this is what happened.
Capt. Tom Keaveney of the Brookline police said Milbury, an assistant coach on his son’s team, grabbed, threatened and shook the opposing player as the teams were shooting around after a Dec. 9 game at a town owned rink. The boy was not hurt, Keaveney said.
OK, MILBURY IS OLD SCHOOL, NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT!
Milbury, a former coach and general manager of the Islanders, is an N.H.L. analyst with NBC Sports, CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada” and NESN, a cable sports station in New England. He is known as a sometimes outspoken proponent of traditional values of fighting and hard hitting, at one point criticizing what he called the “pacification” of hockey.”
AGAIN, MILBURY IS AN OLD SCHOOL HOCKEY PLAYER, FAN & ANALYIST.
In all honesty, this is hockey, a man’s sport. If you can’t handle a coach telling you how it is and making you a better, tougher player, then maybe you shouldn’t be a hockey player.
After all this great sport we call hockey, is not for the normal human being. It’s for the people who have lots of anger issues and this is really the only outlet for people like us, without getting arrested.
Unfortunately, in today’s society, parents don’t see it like this and have to get cops involved.
I AM ON MILBURY’S SIDE ON THIS ONE. MAN UP OR GO PLAY TENNIS!
