Patrick Burke ‏@BurkieYCP
We'll be trying to reach out to Cam and the Devils over the next couple days to get a chance to educate Cam on what we do.
Final thought: If players weren't using this language, we wouldn't have launched. Changing the culture is a slow process- requires patience.


Yep it will be a slow and incredibly long process. Tons of hockey players and pro athletes and regular members of society talk this way and act this way.

Blown way out of proportion, like many of you are saying. Interviews like this make their way to like 100 people that download it. And once you start making it a big deal, that number of interest turns into like 30,000 people who want to know wtf Cam Janssen said..

Why should he have to apologize for his language? Janssen can say what he wants. Too bad there are so many insensitive hypocritical jerks out there.

Lament PC Society all you want. When you shoot your mouth, you are representing your employer weather you are on clock or not. They'd likely rather not have you on record trashing competitors, even if was just in fun.

How about that Cam Janssen, eh? All the class of an unflushed toilet. Hey Cam – if you can't play, you can't play!

Back when I was doing internet radio we had no filters...though I'm not an athlete.

Even so though Patrick Burke took this way too far. Janssen shouldn't have had to apologize at all.

I didn't see the interview, but I'm sure this was another typical overreaction by our over-pussified, crybaby society. Yaaaaay.

Just remmeber Cam Janssen didn't make a personal apology. He made an apology on the Devils website apologizing to Devils management. This is something Lou most likely made him do even though I imagine he'd have to do on his own anyway.

That's the thing with all of this. He was talking about beating the sh!t out of players on the ice, Burke and co along with some other sensitive people on twitter took it the wrong way and Cam had to apologize to get the media sh!tstorm off his back. If he actually was attacking an orientation with malice intent that would be different...

But nope, even the littlest thing is hate speech nowadays.

That's it eh? Unbelievable. Judging by the reaction, I would've thought Cam said "I hate f*gs".

The same thing crossed my mind with Tracy Morgan but that's another argument for a different section of this forum.

i agree with all of these. all i see and read with the articles making such a big deal is :blahblah: :blahblah: :blahblah: this world is way to sensative nowadays, coming from someone who can be a bit sensative. but like everyone said, so many people talk like that, especially in sports. when they are revved up and in the moment of the game, so those sorts of things comes out of their mouths. they cant help it. also, i feel like whatever he said was taken out of context a bit and the radio hosts basically set him up for what he walked in to.

what happened to freedom of speech? it wasnt directly toward someone. people are also making a big deal about the regret you feel after banging a fat chick...it happens people! get over it.

and why aren't people saying anything about him feeling depressed if he's not at the gym or playing?! :noclue: dont know whats coming to this world

I agree. I'm sick of having this PC BS shoved down my throat at every turn. Cam's interview was crass and classless, but who gives a flying F? If anyone was "truly" offended by his comments, they have some serious issues.
