Yeah. Not really sure how people are getting "sexist" out of what he said.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/ho ... 2872.story

She was being stupid. Stupidity is gender-blind.

Thomson: “Right after the goal when you were on the ice with Daniel. Right after he scored. You remember?”

Keith: “I went off the ice and took a minus. I don’t know. What are you talking about?”

Thomson: “Nothing. Just checking.”

Keith: “What did you see?”

Thomson: “It looked like maybe there was a penalty that went undetected. You seemed a bit frustrated.”


Which led to:

Keith: “Oh, no. I don’t think there was anything. I think he scored a nice goal. The ref was right there. That’s what the ref saw. We should get you as a ref maybe, eh?”

Thomson: “Yeah, maybe.”

Keith: The first female … ”

Thomson: “I can’t skate, though.”

Keith: “The first female referee. You can’t play probably either, right? But you're thinking the game like you know it? Okay, see ya.”


He never said "You can't play because you're female". If this was to a guy like Brooks (and lord knows Torts has given it to him plenty of times), no one would care. I mean, if you really read into more than what it is, you get something sexist. All I see is him commenting that she'd be the first female referee. The stuff about how she can't skate/play and how she doesn't know the game is general. He would've said that to a male reporter and no one would give two ****.

Keith is notorious for being a short with the media. I saw nothing wrong with his comments personally.

I heard about the outrage yesterday on the Radio...immediately following hearing the audio. I was confused. She would be the first female ref and if she can't skate, she can't play.

lol, Duncan Keith is a "sexist POS" for not putting up with a ditzy, airhead sports reporter's questions during a frustrated moment?

Was there a similar incident not too long ago or why did I make a connection when I heard hockey player + female reporter?

Maybe I just need to lay off the gin.

Let's not do anything rash, Gaucho.

And I didn't really find Keith's comments all that offensive given the context...it wasn't exactly "nice", but it wasn't "sexist POS" status or whatever...

It was rude as hell for sure. If I was his coach I would have smacked him in the head. But, I agree, it wasn't really sexist.

As I stated earlier, Duncan Keith does not put up with the media and would have been equally short with either a woman or a man.

This happens all the time and you don't hear about it, but suddenly a woman is involved and everyone gets their collective panties in a bunch (note: my use of panties is a general term and is in no way directed at females)

well I'm going to read really deep into your thought, and say you were being sexist/rude to all panty wearing individuals... :pop:

Turn on your tv and watch tonights game vs Edmonton. A team with nothing to lose and absolutely no defense... Chicago is not that good.

I don't know why they are even bothering to have the playoffs. Chicago already won the cup.

That's not the point I'm trying to make...so I'd hope that's not directed towards me at least...

They're good. And trying to peg individual games on them (like this game that they're winning, with a player that's never played a pro game before playing top-six minutes) and saying, "they're not that good" when we just actually lost to an inferior team the night before...

It's really quite obvious what I'm trying to say I believe. I mean, earlier in the thread, I even said, "they aren't a super team or anything" and noted teams that could take them in the playoffs handily...but yet somehow it's misconstrued as "they should be handed the Cup" ...that has to fall on the reader there, not the writer, respectfully...

I'm sorry I'm not trying to make you out to be some Blackhawks fanboy or anything. That interferes at times with me. I just never liked the Hawks ever let alone now. With players like Carcillo, (I like to beat up taxi drivers or whatever he did) Kane, (Generic Crosby) Toews, and a crappy goaltending tandem (especially with one of them being Emery and I never liked him with Ottawa or Philly) that is somehow holding together. The fact the Blackhawks ended up lucking out being in the cup finals against Michael Leighton ( talk about lucking out ). I never liked Roenick or Chelios when they played for the Hawks either. It's just for some reason they annoy the hell out of me. Not to mention their goal song. Only person I even like is Q.
