Never been a fan of Keith (esp. after the hit on Daniel), but this just makes him look like a jerk on and off the ice. Take a listen...



One comment on Twitter that really stands out to me as summing it up pretty well:

Blake Price@blakeprice1040 28m
There's no way Duncan Keith says what he said to a male reporter.. He'd never assume a male reporter doesn't play hockey..

This kind of stuff happens a little too often in sports. True, there aren't any female players or referees in the NHL, but gender shouldn't have any relevance to one's respectability as a reporter.

I disagree with this, I'd wager most reporters can't skate for crap. I think he gives the exact same statement, minus the 'first female ref' comment. I really don't believe it was an intentionally sexist comment, just him being frustrated and disrespectful at somebody who he doesn't think understands the game. Rude, but I doubt he was being sexist. He'll get burned at the stake for this regardless, especially by Canucks fans.

P.S. I still think he's being a dick. I just don't think he was being sexist; I'm not drawing the first female ref comment directly to the rest of his statement.

I didn't think it was a great question but that still was a lousy response.

If a reporter has to be a good hockey player to ask a question than does Duncan Keith have the right to question a referee if he's not a good ref himself?

Keith: "First female referee. Can't play probably, either, right? But you're thinking the game like you know it? Kay, see ya."

Time and time proves to be a bigger scumbag than initially thought. I am in awe for his choice of words towards the female reporter.. Being a female reporter should garner as much respect as a male reporter. I think most NHL athletes would think that way but Keith is an unfathomable d*ck. Wow, I really hate him now.

He clearly says "the first female referee". I don't think he would bring the fact that she's a female into it unless he was trying to discredit her as a sports reporter.

Clearly sexist, and clearly a douche thing to say. How does he know she doesn't play hockey? Maybe she was a referee for women's hockey at some point in her life. They do have women's hockey there Keith.

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

Yes there's the gender argument there, but the more interesting piece of Chicago Blackhawks mentality Duncan Keith shows is something a lot of us have suspected of the Blackhawks for a long time, if the referee doesn't call a penalty, it wasn't a penalty.

He clearly says "you would be the world's first female referee". I don't think he would bring the fact that she's a female into it unless he was trying to discredit her as a sports reporter.

Clearly sexist, and clearly a douche thing to say. How does he know she doesn't play hockey? Maybe she was a referee for women's hockey at some point in her life. They do have women's hockey there Keith.


Oh I know he says it. But I don't know if he's trying to discredit her by saying it, might just be an off-hand mention (there aren't any female refs in the NHL, so he might've just thrown it on there). I think the part where he doubts her knowledge of the game is just typical of the multitude of times frustrated NHLers have called out media on not knowing the game when they're bitter and don't feel like answering dumb questions.

I know my opinion's not likely to be popular here and I'll be diagnosed mentally retarded for having it :lol: That's just how I felt when I heard the interview, and that's still how I feel on his comments.

She asked a question that's no more stupid than 90% of the questions reporters ask.

Instead of just dismissing it, he chose the low road and tried to insinuate she had no credibility as a reporter.

Shows the lack of character he has. The guys clearly as greasy as he looks.

I don't care what he said, she's not really a sports reporter anyway it would be like like Shane Foxman asking him questions. It's like those female NFL reporters, they are just a pretty face to hold the microphone while they repeat questions they are told to ask.

She totally insinuated right to his face that he should've gotten a penalty for slashing Dank. Personally I think Shorty and JG over reacted to it. He was pissed at this and decided to bash a member of the media. I have no problem with it. Yeah, he is a douche, but the media is always worse.

Not to many A$$ Holes from Canada in the NHL, but Keith is the biggest of all. Most Canadians (not all) play with class on and off the ice, this guy keeps putting his foot in his mouth, losing respect more every time.
