Tonight was a lot of fun on PTS. They really had some fun with the whole scoop thing. What I liked the most is that they didn’t take it too seriously. This stuff is just sports, so it’s important to have some perspective.

So now that Mr. Boogard’s cause of death has been confirmed as Alcohol and Oxycodone mixed, has Damien Cox tweeted anything? Given his early tweet filled with the innuendo that death was concussion related. I don’t doubt that his concussion, longterm on disability list and the fact Rangers told him to go home when he had been cleared to play, played a factor. But end of day it wasn’t a concussion that killed him. Very sad that this young man died. But i can’t help but think Mr. Cox was using this story as a chance to berate the NHL for its concussion policies etc… That to me is inexcusable and disrespectful to the Boogard family.

Gerry – I looked at some of Cox’s tweets and they appear to say the opposite of what you suggest.

It strikes me that people will use any situation to disparage a person or side that they don’t like.

And to me it isn’t inexcusable even if Cox did suggest that concussions played a part: how did he become a substance abuser? Do you think that’s not part of the hockey culture?

Steve – The point I was discussing was Damien’s first text. At that point in the story, all we knew was Mr. Boogard was found dead in his apartment. The first tweet that Mr. Cox sent out was –

“Derek Boogaard hadn’t played since being concussed in a fight with Matt Carkner Dec. 22. Serious injury that comes with other symptoms.”
All hockey fans knew that Derek had not played since that concussion. Some of us also knew that he was cleared to play with a few weeks left in season, but the Rangers told him to go home and get ready for the next season.

I read his tweet as immediately connecting dots of concussion/post concussion as relating to this death, or speculating that possiblity.

My issue was that it was/is a tragic story, and until information was known why speculate or innuendo at all. I am of the impression that Damien likes to push the envelope often by either “raising questions” or putting the information out there. As soon as he began getting questioned by others for this text, he then immediately began the tweets of we have to wait etc… Why not just from the beginning of said, tragic news, it is important none of us speculate anything until we know more information.

In a different story, this reminds me of his Bautista article where he brought steroids up. He now clarifies that as, I was just asking the quesiton. But there was no evidence whatsoever presented to raise the question except a rise in statistics. May baseball experts have analyzed Bautistas swing and directly correlate his new success to a change in swing, better timing, and quicker batspeed through. Things that he began toshow at the end of the previous season. There was a switch that turned on for the final month of the season. I could go further with this analogy but have typed long enough. I respect your position, i just think Damien loves to stir the pot.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
