Oh, I guess I'm wrong.
I'm not saying he doesn't have an attitude problem, but that's not a good example of his attitude problem. That was him quoting a line from a movie, someone not realizing it's a quote from a movie and taunting him about it, then him quoting another line in response which was clearly meant to be self-deprecating. The "don't act like you're not impressed" line, like it was in the movie, is usually brought out to jokingly act like you're not ashamed about something when you clearly are.
Again, not saying he doesn't have an attitude problem, just that this twitter exchange isn't a good example of it. In fact, it kind of makes me feel better about his attitude a little bit.
Yeah I'm definitely not saying there aren't problems, I just read that article a few days ago and it really irked me. Lawless presents extremely bold opinions as facts to get people talking and I feel that the way he presents it does turn people who don't know anything about Lawless against players like Kane here in Winnipeg and could eventually cause Kane to want to be relocated, and could even drive his value down because other teams would see how poorly he's being treated, know he wants out, and think he has a huge attitude problem on top of it.
Even if his attitude problem is as bad as Lawless seems to think it is, he's doing a great disservice to the team by putting it out there the way that he does. Whenever a player gets traded for attitude reasons there's always rumors and rumblings but I've never seen a journalist who's supposed to be credible come right out and bash that player like he's doing. To make matters worse he's the only person who writes about the Jets in the WFP, which is the only respected newspaper in this city.
