    Yes I just posted this in another thread. And I've decided to withdraw my support of Air Canada. Their stewardesses are crabby anyway.

    I wonder if they will also have their name taken off the "air canada" center?

    I don't recall hearing anything about Air Canada and not liking violence when the Pens and Islanders had 300 penalty minutes in a game but a hab takes a bump and look out!

    This is following several other incidents involving career-threatening and life-threatening headshots in the NHL recently."  read carefully before saying anything not only for hab's players!

    Air Canada reportedly sent his letter to all six Canadian NHL governors. Vandal continued: "While we support countless sports, arts and community events, we are having difficulty rationalizing our sponsorship of hockey unless the NHL takes responsibily to protect both the players and the integrity of the game."

    Yeah just like Parliament, though they all jump the gun when it is a freckkin scab laying on the ice.  The more notoriety this gets, the less I feel for the pondscum dobag Pac.  Karma is a beotch, noone deserves to be injured, but his little girl antics and his mouth precede him.  He is so hurt that he is able to call Bob Mac, and whine about a turnbuckle. I know Sav and Berg, that is the first thing they did was to call Bob when they were injured.

    Goes to show that Pac was, is and always will be a db, and as the new age scab, he yaps instead of being a man.

    The Rocket is rolling in his grave at the state of his beloved scabs. Less than 50% are Canadian and a total of 3 players are from La Belle Province, what a state of affairs. Riots must be in order.

    A bunch Habs sent letters to all major sponsors threatening a boycott of their products, so the sponsors are writing these bogus letters to the governors.  Merely catering to the heartbleeding Habs fans so they don't lose money.  Boo hoo.  Go have another donut from Tim Hortons, you skirt wearing, wine drinking pansies.

    Air Canada is living off of subsidies from the Federal Government so really Canadian taxpayers are saving their money by not having a failing airline give their money away to a sports-league. A truly ignorant thing to do by a truly ignorant company.....

    This has nothing to do with the Habs folks.  Be great if it were that simple.  It's about the public.  It's about posturing, politics and promotion.
    Whenever something turns into a "cause",... sensibility goes out the door.
    This Air Canada thing is a perfect example.
    Does anyone remeber Roy McMurtry?
     Unlike McMurtry, and his 70's self promotional crusade, the league itself drew attention to head injuries, and while trying to clean things up a bit...were also looking for validation, and a pat on the back from the rest of society.  The ensuing, and constant press, causes everyone to develop an opinion on the sport, including those that have no ability to form a reasonable one.

    What started out as a move to curb "headshots", has evolved into a public expectation that severe disciplanary action is handed down every time a player is injured.  That's a huge problem.

    Now the league is in a mess, cuz the hopelessly fickle, shallow, and uninformed winds of public opinion, are right in the middle of their sand box.(see Air Canada)

    In order to properly oversee things, the NHL must look at every case individually, and make decisions as they go.  They can't possibly win, when the critics are of the majority, and most posess an "ambulance chasing lawyer" mentality.

    The league, the refs, and the players, don't really understand what to do.  The public, doesn't have a clue, but it's a golden opportunity for the hockey haters, pacifists, etc...all those who like to balyhoo, to jump up on their soapbox, and it's the lottery for sportswriters, and tv talking heads whose livelihood depends on stirring the pot.
     
    This type of thing is only gonna get uglier.

    Pointless.  Even if Chara were to be suspended along with the entire Isles and Pens teams, that would not prevent future injuries.

    It's a contact sport.  It is well within the realm of possibility if someone became a quadraplegic after a clean legit hockey hit, football tackle or for that matter sliding into home plate?

    In a contact sport such things are possible, in golf or chess I would be shocked and amazed at a broken neck.

    I agree "jmwalters" where were these clowns when Patrice Bergeron or Marc Savard were concussed.I also saw a story on the local news were these idiots are calling the local police stations in Montreal demanding Chara be charged with sum kind of bogus charges.Where was their outrage when Guy Lafluer was driving his 21yr old son to meet with his 14 yr old girlfriend.

    How about this.  I will suspend myself from this board for 7 games  if we can just stop talking about this. 

    Was it an unfortunate incident.  Yes it was.   The media wants to sell papers. 

    If they gave him a few games big deal.  I would have been fine either way. 

    Its a contact sport, I wish Max a speedy recovery.  Let's move on and play some hockey.

    This is going too far.  In my office ,  where Air Canada is big player in the work I do I cannot talk about Chara-Pac hit. 
    Everyone is just to bias and emotional it's ridiculous . If the topic comes up and I'm not saying Chara should have been suspended for 3 4 5 games then it's best I shy away and not say anything at all. It's really big in here.

    Now let's talk about AirCanada a little ;  They're to talk about being politically correct after what they announced this week ?  It's so un ethical what they are doing to Porter airlines,  they're trying to put them out of buisness now flying into the only airport Porter flew into (Toronto City Airport).

    Only problem in Canada there are only 2 airlines so they're very hard to boycott when you need to travel with the country.  We don't have the open sky system as you have in the U.S. 

    Excuse me if I bored you guys/gals with this rant. Solely the views of Bs.

    Legion,

    If you can give me a couple of details on the Porter Airlines situation, and a link to more info (news story, etc), I can have someone post an article about it on a news site with a massive readership.

    Yea poor Porter. They were/are making money even when their planes are flying at 50% capacity. A/C already has an airline that competes with them very well. They're not going to allow another. And with the Gov't having so much money tied into Air Canada, they won't allow too many airlines get in the way.
