I didn't watch the video because it will probably piss me off even more, but someone should've just smashed the little fvckbag's camera and spit on him. fvcking LA trash.


I am going to assume paparazzi. They are all dickholes from what I can tell.

I have to say it irks me a little, watching the game it was evident that they accepted defeat after one period and this just adds to it. I'm not going to rage about it because this season was a great success with reason to celebrate but the night of getting blown out 6-1? Come on, take some time to at least reflect on the season.

Should they mope around forever about this? They are human too and this is probably the first bit of actual real fun outside of hockey together in months.

For all the hard work they put into the playoffs and in the season they deserve this.

I watched the video and don't really see what the big problem is. None of the guys are smiling and yukking it up or anything. They are coming out of a night club or whatever and getting into taxis and limos. Who cares.

Let me know when any of them show up to the games drunk and are cheating with their teammates wives...

like the Philly rejects playing for LA.

Overall, I would like athletes to be more of the Joe DiMaggio type and simply stay out of the news all of the time, but we live in this constant celebrity nonsense environment where everybody worries about everyone else's business. It really shows the decline of western civilization in my opinion. Its the age of the Kardashians and Paris Hiltons where being famous for being famous makes you famous (or something)

If Joe D were around today he wouldn't be able to spend one minute at his table in his favorite restaurant.

It had to be said, I think the "we weren't even supposed to be here" or "this season is already a win" mentalities are getting to everyone's head. Sure it's a decent way to look at this but when you're two games away from being the best in the sport, then you roll over and your first reaction is to hit the clubs?

That was "partying it up"? Looked like a bunch of unhappy people in suits. Apparently going outdoors is frowned upon when you lose.

Within a couple of days you have players moving back with their familes in different states, and in different COUNTRIES. These guys wont be around each other again until training camp and some of these guys will never see each other again, ever. This is a tightly knit group of guys and I do not have any problems with this whatsoever.

There are other ways of being with each other than going into a club, going to a night club after a loss just makes it look like they don't care (not saying they don't) but I wouldn't be as upset if they say all went to the hotel bar as a team. Just look at Richards and Carter, they're image of party boys is the why we hate them and now it's just "blowing off steam"?

How do you know that one player happened to know of the club and decided to take the team there? Or that they know a person who works there or runs the place? Who cares in the end? Do you think that they don't care that they lost or something?

I didn't see anything in the video that would show that they were falling over drunk or acting like fools.

It's how you conduct yourself after losing and I don't believe that going to a club and walking out again shows me anything negative.

Also, Carter and Richards are more than party boys... they destroyed a locker room. I don't think its comparable.

Well at least the Devils had good sense to do something that the Kings weren't doing. I heard all the Kings players were lined up getting Rod Stewarted by Pierre McGuire.

They went for some drinks with each other. Who cares.

Also, I'm so glad I don't live in that fake ass city.

The Kings' locker room appears to be very much in tact. They even got a vintage piece of hardware for their troubles.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

it looks like we have a failure to communicate.

what I should have said was that when Richards and Carter were expected to be some what leaders on a hockey club they were unable to put aside their party boy antics.

when they are just two players on a team and play in a city where nobody cares about them or their sport (unlike Philadelphia) their behavior is not much of a problem.

Anyone who has a problem with this:

1. Has never played sports

2. Doesn't understand professional sports

3. Overestimated this team's potential...sorry, I said it

4. Doesn't understand human psychology

5. Didn't watch the video

They played 110 games and lost in game 6 of the SCF when NO ONE had them going to the playoffs...we heard how great of friends they were and how they all loved this season...what's wrong with going out to celebrate some hardwork and a great season after the season comes to an end? Seriously. One thing about this board is that it lacks diversity of opinion and people who actually understand how this world functions...from professional athletes to human psychology, anyone who is knocking this has their head up their ass...I am sorry.

On a side note, when my varsity high school team lost in the conference finals back in 2003, we had a big party at my house to celebrate the season and our trip to the conference finals...was there a bit of a somber undertone? Absolutely. But when you go to war with the guys around you night in and night out for months and months, it is nice to share a few drinks after it is all said and done, win or lose.

Get a grip!

Would you prefer they spent their evenings at a funeral home?

Hotel bars are great for business travelers who just want to kill 30 minutes and really are never fun to go to. The Devils players just went to the club, had a few drinks and a few laughs and that's it. They are no even close to what Richards and Carter have done.
