Well done. Brad Trelving. Took too long but whatever.
Bottoms up, Bill you abusive fuck.
Now as Rod Brind’Amour said last week, time to move past it and get to work.
“It for sure happened, the two issues that are in question.”

Smart. I like Rod as a player and a human being. He was always the hardest working player in any NHL game. He was the consummate competitor and Captain Serious before Johnathan Toews. He’s a players coach but respects the code of the old game which he is desperately trying to reel this Michal Jordan – Bill Peters story to bed so he can get on with his life.
Can you imagine if we had social media back in the ’80s? I’m thinking the Edmonton Oilers all would have been sent to the fucking Gulag for the shit they did on road trips. I know Grant Fuhr likes it but they called him Coco for Chrissakes.
Some stuff gets a pass, like selling heroin in the early 1900s over the counter or telling consumers doctors prefer Camel cigarettes.
OHHHHH. “Costlier Tabacco!”
Abuse is never ok and nor was it. My feeling is if the victim needs closure and they approach that effort privately, that’s their business. I also think if the victim of abuse wants to name them publically to exact public pain and hurt that individual, that’s also their prerogative. In fact, if it’s true, I prefer the public shaming method. It’s just how I’m wired. I’ve lived it so I’m partial to it knowing the damage it does to men like Mike Babcock who emotionally abused a wide-eyed 19-year-old Mitch Marner. Bill Peters cyber-stoning has been particularly fun to watch with the now confirmed report he’s racist too.
That’s why he just got fired
Bill Peters has left the Flames. https://t.co/CNRGXFZpNb

I’m assuming that’s what Eric’s tweet means. Follow him for the latest but it looks like that’s an MF’n Wrapski.
Smell ya later. Back to the rolling Three Hills, Alberta with a whiskey bottle and a bible.
PS. Stop by PBI when you’re there to ask for forgiveness.
PPS or PSS, or whatever. The reason this is out so fast is yes, we are that good. Plus, I was doing a post on the genius of Brind’Amour’s answer in the media scrum today when Francis hit the tweet machine.
PPPS or PSSS. Peters just released this cowardly statement forgetting to mention Akim Aliu by name. He’s clearly not coming back.
