In Response to Re: Newfiebullet, Wheatskins & Yaz
Ok, RMiller! Somebody told me you're getting out of control. So, I actually went back & read what you've been saying, or asking. 1) First of all I DO NOT live in NB. I was born there & lived there most of my life. I now reside in AB. So, Mr, Copp & I played against one another this past summer in the summer league I play in. In the off season Mr Copp resides in Calgary. 2) I did not say I wanted to choke you! Re-read the sentence again. "who should be in the scabs forums & makes a great goalie in Buffalo someone we wanna choke because of his name" I said make us want to choke RYAN MILLER because of his name." I said that you should be in scabs forums & I'm certainly not the 1st to say that to you! 3) Re-read this again! "Yea & I have called the CRTC . I have called my Goverment rep. I even had over 3500 people sign a petition in my birth home in NB. All Bruin fans & Red Sox fans. I got a response from the CRTC quoting their law about having Canadian content. The Goverment rep basically sent me an F.O letter." Why would I send the petition to the CRTC? The only one who can change the laws is the government. I sent the petition to my MLA's office. That was in 1998 when I did this. 4) No that is not me on the t-shirt. I got that off of e-bay & you can get it for most teams. 5) With regards to your daughter? I am sorry & I don't blame you for being upset. I typed that out of anger & without thought. I am working on that, however that is no excuse. If someone said that about any of my 3 daughters I'd be very upset as well. I apologize to anyone else who maybe from the Province of Newfoundland that may have seen the derogatory remark I put. I did get rid of it, but that's besides the point. RMiller, Newfiebullet,NoGoats & anyone else from Nfl. I was way out of line & if I could take it back I would. I am truly sorry from the bottom of my heart that I said anything about your families & where they are from. I promise to never do it again.

First of all, I am not "out of control."
When I said I wanted to meet you in person to discuss your concerns with Newfoundlanders and Hab fans, I meant just that. Not sure how that's been interpreted as "out of control."
Appreciate your most recent words, but this is just a child's game, Nitemare. This is not reality, and there's little need to bring up your concerns with the CRTC here as for every Canadian like yourself that thinks that Canadian content laws in broadcasting should be dropped, there are hundreds more who think that maintaining the Canadian content rules are important in defining who we all are as a nation.
Having your team win a cup is also great, but not at the high price of alienating a significant portion of your countrymen. I'll let my six year old daughter know that you didn't really mean what you previously said.
Good luck to your team this season.
I'll be cheering for mine.
