Personally I found it funny, but I can see people in Winnipeg having a problem with it because they feel he should act mature and cut the antics. That and a lockout was going on and maybe they saw Kane of being insenitive to the situtation going on.

To a lot of us yes. To working-class hockey fans in Winnipeg, maybe not so much.


You might be on to something here.

I got that part from reading what Jets fans are saying on the matter (like on Arctic Ice Hockey). Saying that he their whipping boy and that there trying to run him out of town for being too hard on him.
