Raking Leafs

Mixing metaphors and casting cliches about hockey and the Maple Leafs for the ether's pleasure since MCMLXVII.

JFJ a dumb-Bell?

JFJ has some 'splainin' to do.

For some history and perspective, here is a good compilation of similar alcohol-related incidents. [via -> via]

UPDATE - "According to Ferguson, through a released statement, the Leafs "have been aware of the charges against Mark Bell" and have been "following the legal proceedings closely. Mark has acknowledged the error in judgment (and) has accepted responsibility for his actions, and the Leafs organization will support Mark through this challenging time."

    Great post title.

    Hopefully the sentencing in October ends up in something that doesn't include jail time.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, that would be nice. I find it refreshing he plead guilty, even if it is not the most prudent course of action from a legal perspective. Not very often do pro athletes own up to their actions.

    I just want to hear what JFJ has to say for himself. Because another 12 months of distractions for Bell makes his acquisition highly suspect.
