BLACKHAWKS F BOLLAND APOLOGETIC FOR 'BETTMAN DEAD' RETWEET
TSN.CA STAFF


Chicago Blackhawks forward Dave Bolland was asked by a Twitter follower on Friday to retweet a comment he'd previously made about "wanting Bettman dead."
Bolland obliged, and on Saturday said that it was the wrong decision.
"It was a mistake, I never meant to retweet that out," Bolland told TSN. "I like to retweet for a lot of my fans and I just retweeted the wrong thing. I feel bad about it."
Bolland is the latest player to vent his frustrations towards the NHL and the current CBA discussions.
Last week, Red Wings defenceman Ian White called Bettman "an idiot," while Panthers forward Kris Versteeg called Bettman and deputy commissioner Bill Daly "cancers."
Hurricanes winger Jeff O'Neill tweeted "Bettman, stop talking to the media. I wanna 'make whole' in your **** head."
O'Neill soon took the tweet down, blaming it on a hacker.

With no collective bargaining agreement in sight, the NHL cancelled all games through December 14 on Friday, along with the 2013 NHL All-Star Weekend in Columbus. The move brings the total number of games cancelled to 422, which includes the 2013 Winter Classic.

Well done, as usual. :picard:

Bolland isn't exactly wrong, but that was a dumb thing to do.

Dem crapcago Blackhawks sure don't like Bettman to much, thinking back to the 94' lockout when Chelios had almost similar heated words for Bettman. But instead of hiding behind a computer screen he said how he felt about the situation via interview, ah the good ol' days.

Well, he should get penalized now every time he steps on the ice. Welcome to the black mark club, Chicago.

In the athletes with class category, I place Bolland somewhere in between Michael Vick and Nik Lewis.

I understand the players frustration, but the anger should be directed to Fehr and whoever the idiots were who decided to hire Fehr.

Bolland has everything, money, a championship, and a pension that will make him set for life even after he retires.

Despite all this, he has the gall to hurl death threats at Bettman, who represents the owners who pay players like Bolland.

My advice to Dave: Spend a few seasons traveling in a rickety plane in Russia and then re-think your situation, asshole.

I place Bolland somewhere in between the Sedins and Linden. Nik Lewis and Michael Vick are great role models and ambassadors of their sports, Bolland is not.

I don't know why Bolland would do something like that, considering his former teammate Versteeg called him a "cancer" and got heat for it.

Wishing someone dead is the same, if not worse.

Bolland is probably one of the most classless players ever. He continues to come up with new ways to prove he is one of the rats of the NHL. Why would he even consider RTing this, his excuse is pitiful. "I just retweeted the wrong thing." Really that's all ya got? Weak.

At least he didn't use the "my account got hacked" excuse. That seems to be the go to explanation for most people.

Absolutely right Michael Vic is the definition of positive role model and ambassador to his sport.








....
His sport being dog fighting of course..

Some of these "tweets" should be investigated by the police, especially about the one about putting a whole in Bettman's head. I bet some union lawyer must have told that player he could be charged with uttering threats and so he came up with the "hacker" excuse.

Bolland often re-tweets his fans messages, probably more than most NHL players. That being said, Bolland used poor judgement in RT'ing that particular tweet. It wasn't Bolland's message, but it the Twitterverse you have to taken responsibility for your re-tweets and tweets alike. Bolland made a mistake, owned up to it and apologized.

I'm not saying I disagree, but I would imagine if one were a well-known athlete with a highly public twitter account, it would be wise to use some discretion when tweeting and re-tweeting certain things in such a public forum.



And yes, having Bolland as our third line center would be awesome, undoubtedly. That doesn't change the fact that he is a douche, haha.

I agree. The fact that none of those other players' comments garnered it's own CDC thread shows that this is a typical case of Canuck fans' disdain for players who have given the team fits in the past.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

"What players need is the right kind of strength and power. That includes learning to understand that leverage and positioning can be just as important as raw strength when it comes to winning battles in the game. It's more about timing and athleticism --and avoiding injury--than it is about how much you can bench press. I don't know how many times I've seen a guy with the physique of a defensive end line up a guy half his size, only to bounce off when he connects. Sure, there is room in the game for big guys who can throw their weight around. But for the most part, players are smart enough to see them coming--and strong enough to protect the puck when they arrive. There are trainers out there who know how to devlop hockey-specific strength--though a trainer can help only if a player follows the program. All too often, I've seen players sign up with the best trainer, but not show up for their workouts and never to reap the benefits."
