Mike Milbury

Postby Jasmine on Tue Apr 23, 2013 10:27 am

I called the NHL offices in New York today to call for Mike Milbury to be fired. Last night he called for Ottawa or ANY team to hurt Matt Cooke. This is both unacceptable and embarrassing to the league! There is no other league that would put with one of their announcers calling for someone to be hurt. The number in NY is (212)789-2000.

I just watched the three minute or so clip of what Milbury said for the first time. It sounded dumb (no surprise there) but taking the time to call the NHL and demand he be terminated for that? Really? That's a tad excessive.

meh. If people can't look at the past two years to see that Cooke has changed and still want to beat the drum about his play style, then fine. Matt Cooke is still the nuclear option because teams can't stop focusing on him.

If you are really that outraged about Mike Millbury's comments you should be contacting NBC not the NHL. Althought the NHL could coerce NBC to fire him, the ultimate decision would be by NBC.

Why did you call the NHL instead of his employer?

Everyone knows Milbury is a clown. Notice he did it when JR was there. Because if Jonesy was there, he probably would have challenged Milbury on the stupidity of his comment.

Can you believe that he and Ruutu used to be on the same team. I can't believe the league lasted through that.

Nice he took some time out of his busy kid-punching schedule to make such an informed and classy statement

I called the NHL office just to tell the person that answered the phone that I hope she has a wonderful day and that somebody loves her very much.

Just watched it...so basically Milbury's point is "taking people out with dirty hits needs to be removed from the game so someone should take out Matt Cooke with a dirty hit".

Matt Cooke is an excuse. He's just one of a long list of excuses to bad mouth the Penguins by a group of has been's who were left in the wake of Mario. For some reason all these bozos ended up on TV, I guess they figured if you can't beat them on the ice - do it during intermission or post game.

It's somewhat understandable... Lemieux, Jagr, Crosby, Malkin.... once in a generation type players - and they all played here. On top of it - you take a guy like Iginla and add him at the trade deadline for fun. Or a heart and soul captain like Morrow - and take him. How they must hate this organization.

Without Matt Cooke - the talk simply sways to things like hockey gods, tanking for sid, bettman, or some other stupid conspiracy theory. Matt Cooke is tangible - they can slow down a replay of his hit and cry about it all night.. he gives them an excuse.

I called them. They told me to keep calm and carry on. I think they were laughing in the background.

I called them, they asked for my email address so they could send me an official complaint form to ensure that Milbury is terminated. I opened up my inbox and saw this:
