Tie Domi's Rink Rage

swearsThe article in the Sun says it all.

Former Leafs' tough guy Tie Domi was "like a beast" as he screamed obscenities at his 11-year-old son Max's peewee hockey coach at a North York arena last night.

Witnesses say Domi's profane tirade happened in front of a dozen stunned and scared young players, parents and fans.

An enraged Domi was apparently upset at Max's lack of ice time.

I'm not going to bash Domi in this entry, because that's just too easy. I'm going to put myself in his shoes. If my son James were 11, had forgotten his hockey gloves and didn't get enough ice time as a result, would I be upset enough to leave the stands and confront the coach leaving with "You're a fucking shitty coach. What the fuck do you think you're doing ... You're just playing two fucking lines"?

Of course not. I can't even imagine a situation of that nature that would get me yelling at James' hockey coach. It's peewee AAA and the players are pre-teens. There's no place for rink rage and there are no exceptions.

Tie Domi's rapid fall from grace has been startling, and I don't think it's complete. You've got to wonder what's next.

I compare Domi to Rob Ray here in Buffalo. Two complete opposites. They faced each other countless times over the years and were the same type of player, maybe Domi had a bit more scoring touch but thats where it ends. Domi retired and its unbelievable how fast his star has fallen up there. He was respected until he retired. Rob Ray, he continues to handle himself well and is well spoken and liked by all of us here in Buffalo. I know the two liked to beat the hell out of each other and all but I do know that they had a great respect for each other as well, I wonder what Razor thinks of Domi's misfortunes?

The mother fracker is retired now-please let it stay that way, and stop giving this 40-something brat any publicity.

How much *new* publicity can a 7 month old entry really give someone? I mean, seriously.

I don't think Neville checked the date on this one. He also went off on my thoughts about The Archies, published a while ago.
