You do realize to call an older single woman a "spinster" isn't a good idea, right? It's not exactly a term of endearment... :lol:

What part of "If I were to refer to DJs as "spinsters" older women shouldn't be offended by it, because it literally has nothing to do with them" was too difficult for you to understand?

I'm still convinced the guy threw the banana because he anticipated Simmonds' "slip" of the tongue in the following game. Or maybe the banana connotates something else related to Simmonds' slur at Avery. The world may never know.

The poor sentence structure makes it difficult to understand.

And just a head's up. Unlike others who love to argue for pages over stuff like this, I don't. So, I'm done. :lol:

I'm convinced he threw the banana so everyone would forget he wears amber-shaded sun glasses and pops his collar.

I'm convinced he threw it because he thought he was playing Mario Kart 64 and wanted someone to slip and spin out on the banana.

There are plenty of legitimate taunts and criticisms of him without having to bring up race. people should just stick to judging him because he is a piece of crap

I don't think people are taunting him using racial insults because of anything having to do with hockey, they'd doing it because he's black. Its not a matter of finding another way to taunt him, the racial taunt was the goal.

He isn't even a piece of crap. He's a damn fine hockey player.

Yeah, I didn't understand the "plenty of legitimate taunts and criticisms" part.

So the team (Chomutov Pirates) put the names of the first five identified offenders on the website, banned them from attending any games, will report them to the police, and will sue them to collect the fine (roughly $1,500) the Pirates were charged by the Extraleague:

Not sure how legal it is to post the names, but definitely a firm stand by the team.
