Why does it fvcking matter?!?

Because that's what journalism is about. Getting to the bottom of what happened. All the reporter had to do was find out what was signaled. He's not very curious. Neither are you.

I’m curious, I can’t figure out what racist gestures there are.

Weird fvckin look guys

Questions should be asked. People have been known to lie. Women are people. Blacks are people. 

Obviously, no one should be harassed. And maybe this hockey player did something cruel. I just want to know what it is.

What’s weird about wanting to hear the whole story?? I’m not doubting what happened in any manner, I’m just wondering why they aren’t telling the whole story.

This isn't something that happened behind closed doors leading to a he-said-he-said situation. It happened during a live game and whatever racist gesture was made doesn't warrant acknowledgement or clarification. The player affected stated their feelings on the matter and frankly that's all we need to know about it. It's odd to obsess over wanting to know the exact gesture. It's irrelevant. I've said my piece, I leave it in peace

That’s your opinion. To me, if you are going to tell a story, tell the story. I still don’t know what a “racist gesture” is. 

I also don’t think mentioning it equals obsessing over it.

I agree, and will add, that a year or so ago there was a minority of people claiming the "OK" sign is a racist gesture. Obviously, you cant just take a generally agreed upon thing like that and turn it into something else, but it makes me somewhat skeptical. Like you said, tell the story.

The only racist "gesture" I can think of is doing something with your eyes to make them look "Asian".

I wasn’t even being skeptical about whether it happened, I legitimately didn’t know what the heck they were talking about. 

Jordan Subban talking about “monkey gestures” makes sense, I suppose in that context that would be a racist gesture.

In the AHL the guy like a typical pu$$y instead of squaring up chose to from a distance did a peel a banana and then eat it "gesture" (if you wanna call it that).  I don't think us white people or at least myself or any of my friends would take offense to it the same way my non-white friends would. But hey that's just me.  If you look hard enough there are pictures of it. With that I'm outta your guys ongoing debate.

I’m still not sure there’s a debate at all…

The most telling part of the video in there is that not one of that piece of garbage’s team mates stepped in when Subban and company went after him. You see red jerseys surround the guy and his team just kinda half heartedly reached in

In other news, I love these Teddy Bear Toss videos. Check out who gives up the goal that triggers the toss. 

SWEET CUDDLY MAYHEM!!

 

Why it’s Devils legend Keith Kinkaid!! I do like those Richter tribute pads though.

What a fantastic goal call. Can we hire that guy?

And yeah, these teddy bear nights are great. My local ECHL team occasionally does them, and they have a police suv cruiser drive out onto the ice and they pack them into the back of it. I guess police departments like to have a teddy bear or stuffed animal or whatever in their vehicles to give to frightened and upset kids during certain domestic calls and whatnot.

Really makes me wonder what world some people live in that they think they are going to do something g like this in 2022 and get away with it. Good riddance to that guy, enjoy your next job bagging groceries.

he says he’s made the same gesture to other players before. Time to see if the ECHL/he produces the tapes. I know Tom Wilson has made the “flex/tough guy” gesture from the box before, I think against the Rangers, could this be the same thing…?
