Has Ron Rolston Ever Heard of John the Baptist? His head may soon be on a platter.
I haven’t watched the game, yet, but the knives are out. I’ll have more later after I watch the game, but I’m hoping that USAHockey doesn’t cow-tow to the forces that want more aggro in the game.
Instead of calling for Rolston’s head, USAHockey should be filing complaints with the IIHF-brass which dropped the ball after the Canada/USA game. When will the IIHF stand up to the Canadian-dominated media and the continued descent into anti-hockey? Where is the IIHF after what happened on New Year’s? No reviews of the incidents after the second Canadian goal by both teams? No review of the Boarding call on Della Rovere? No condemnation of both teams taunting the opposing bench? Even the NHL would have handed out suspensions after that game – to both sides.
I’d simply urge any Hockey fan to support Rolston after the US team is being called an embarrassement and a bunch of “classless prima-donnas.” While I must admit that there were a couple of incidents involving American players that were uncalled for and irresponsible, Rolston kept his players in check for the most part and should be commended for controlling his players at the death of the game when things could have devolved into tit-for-tat violence.
More on the game later…
But, I wonder who enjoyed this more…the Slovaks, or the Canadians?
