Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw was suspended for one game and fined $5,000 on Wednesday for using a gay slur in Game 4 of the team's opening-round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.



NHL Public Relations confirmed Shaw's suspension through a news release and indicated he'd undergo sensitivity training.

Called an official a f'n faggot. He also flipped the official off. Much of the exchange was caught on the broadcast.

Now the NHL is gay,



I could see the fine for insulting the ref, and flipping them off, but specifically for a "gay" slur... Fuck you NHL!

I'm sure the NHL did take the totality of his actions into account. He was pretty much unhinged all night. Ended up really hurting his team.

As agenda ridden this country is now a days, why would anyone say that on national tv in front of millions of butthurt people that are just waiting for something to offended about?

I thought "faggot" was a bundle of sticks or kindling used to start a bonfire.  That, of a cigarette.

Well, I guess you can't call people faggot anymore.

We're through the looking glass people, PC has finally got its mitts on Hockey.

hockey was the last bastion of mens sports. now its becoming just as gay as the rest of them. soon they wont allow them to fight because it "promotes violence" or some shit.

With the qualifier that I am a Blues fan, I'm inclined to feel the same.

If he had just called someone a faggot, I might feel differently. Even for him, last night was ugly.

was the ref being a fucking faggot or not?

Its a valid question.

With the disclosure that I am a big Blackhawks fan, what happens on the ice needs to stay on the ice.  Grow some balls refs, your wives probably call you worse.  Get the fuck over it.

How come guys who take a dick up the ass for enjoyment, are so sensitive?

This is a game where people break hockey sticks over each others faces...and he needs sensitivity training for calling a ref a fag?

LOL

Should have called him a mezzo finocchio maybe then he'd only got half a fine...

Link Posted: 4/20/2016 6:59:24 PM EDT
Calling the ref a slur of any kind deserves a slap on the pee pee.  


Good suspension in my opinion.

Check out McSorley's cheap shot on Brashear. Close enough to the face I guess.

If he would have called him a "fucking clown" do you think they would have suspended him for an anti-clown reference?

Suspend him for belligerent behavior, but don't try to tie it to some anti-gay, progressive nonsense.
