Hey, here's a non-COVID/BLM reason to despise sportsball!  Mike Milbury is out -- at least temporarily -- as a TV analyst after uttering this horrific slur against the fair sex:

Responding to fellow commentator Brian Boucher’s observation Thursday night praising the focus players have been able to maintain in the twin COVID-free bubbles the league has set up to stage the Stanley Cup playoffs, Milbury replied, “It’s the perfect place. Not even any woman here to distract you.”

This is why I remind friends who insist that hockey will stay above the fray that's it's already too late.  The NHL has a Stage 4 case of the pozz.  Also, isn't what Milbury said no different than the basis for just about 90% of all sitcom and stand up jokes?  We have a powerful class of people that believe The Scarlet Letter was an instruction manual.

I hear about this "controversy". It's ridiculous, and seemed more an indictment of guys than women. It's clearly a line out of the '70s, but Milbury is out of the '70s. From what I hear, this was more of a last strew type of deal because people have been unhappy with him for years. But it seems like he'll still survive this and be back. Unlike Thom Brennaman, who is done for saying something much worse.

Nobody is sad Milbury is out because he's a horrible commentator and an idiot in general.

That said, the comment was nothing and it's stupid that's what did him in (for now), but I'm not sorry he's off my TV.

Yeah, this seems to be the consensus.  I think a more respected commentator probably could've gotten away with just making an apology for this one.  Everyone wants him out though.

Any way we can get Pierre McGuire to do the same thing?

I'd still probably trade for him in exchange for you taking Ron McClean and Kevin Bieksa though. I'll also throw in Mr. No-Haircut, Brian Burke.

You keep McClean right where he is.  Apart from Trudeau fils, there's no better emblem of the decline of the once-great Canadian male.

I like Brian Burke. Use to watch him before the COVID on the NHL Network show with Anthony Stewart , Jeff Marek and that douchebag looking fucker Justin Bourne. You don't like Bieksa because he played for Vancouver.

Fair point on Bieksa. :)
McClean sucks every cock he can on that show when the viewpoints start flying around. I have to change the channel.
Fact is I haven't been able to watch the talking heads between periods for years. Just complete douchery from top to bottom.

LoL on Bieksa. Saw him regularly for I guess 3 seasons for the Manitoba Moose and always hoped the Nucks would trade him away so I'd see him less.
To me his entire career he was the opposition's secret weapon on any team he ever played for. Just awful.

It does show just how fragile this world has become that a relatively innocuous statement has virtually gotten him cancelled. 
He is terrible at what he does and I always hated him as a player as well.

Meanwhile, Thom Brennaman gets suspended for using the word "fag" (he didn't know he was live on air).

He might have just been asking someone for a cigarette.
