I’d like to consider myself a calm person for the most part…But some things grind my gears more than others. Now, I know there are very serious issues going on in the world right now and they should be taken very seriously. But, I’m not here to talk about any of that though, I’m here to talk about this asshole Max Kellerman who decided to talk shit on the NHL and hockey.
Kellerman happens to be on a TV show called First Take. Well, he decided while talking about sports to go on and say that nobody really cares about hockey(see clip here). This really pissed me off. Now don’t get me wrong, I know hockey isn’t dominating the ratings and it’s not everyones cup of tea. But to flat out say it’s not one of the four major team sports?!?! Are you fucking high?!? There are four major sports leagues…The NFL, MLB, NBA, and yes the NHL. Just a completely idiotic statement to even make if you ask me and totally disrespectful to the players of the NHL. Keep in mind the league generates a shit ton of money even though their marketing department blows. But that’s a blog for another day. I get the ratings part but its tough to dominate the ratings when there’s really only one major network that broadcast games.
So Max… listen here pal, maybe if you stopped being a pigeon and started talking more frequently about whats going on in the NHL you would help grow more of a following for it. But don’t go on your show and flat out disrespect the NHL players who work their asses off day in and day out and say nobody cares about it. There are plenty of people out here like myself who love the game more than the other major sports and want nothing more than for hockey to become just as popular. That can’t and wont happen until there are more outlets that give the NHL the attention it deserves.
I’m tired of hockey getting disrespected and I will not stand for it anymore. So Kellerman, cut the shit and stop bad mouthing hockey and the NHL.
