Tarnishing the Sport
This Monday Jonathan Roy, a backup goalie for the Quebec Remparts, participated in a playoff game hockey brawl where he skated to his counterpart on the other team, challenged that team member to a fight, and then proceeded to pummel the team member, despite the fact that his opponent did not defend himself, did not return a single blow. The video is here, just in case you think maybe I’m just a squeamish girl who can’t handle a good hockey fight.
Jonathan Roy then proceeded to flip the bird to the entire crowd in the arena before skating off the ice.
Yes, fighting is part of the game of hockey. The other players on the ice were fighting. Jonathan’s actions were something else. A very critical something else.
Shame on you, Jonathan Roy.
