Cooke a "Changed Man"?? Bullshit!
1) We read with a combination of laughter and anger when we heard/read Matt Cooke's apology after the NHL handed the oft suspended jerk his latest sentence of 7 games. We don't have to (again ) rehash the litany of incidents that have surrounded Cooke over the past several years. Suffice to say they speak for themselves. One incident or perhaps two might allow us to give Cooke the benefit of the doubt, but a dozen or more do not. In addition to the 6 suspensions, he has had many more on the line issues throughout his career that lead us to NEVER believe any apology Cooke ever gives. He's a piece of shit. Period.
2) Cooke after injuring Colorado Avalanche defenseme (Tyson Barrie who is the Avalanche's top offensive-minded defenseman and suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament on the play) stated that he did not intend to injure the player and felt he should be considered a 'changed man' since he hadn't been suspended in 2 years. To that we say bull shit! The only "changed man" in Mr. Cooke's hockey life is Marc Savard who 's career was ended by Cooke. Hopefully Barre won't have a similar fate and returns as good as ever, but there are no guarantees of that. The distance that Cooke traveled with his knee out, plus the further extension of his knee and the severity of the injury combined to make the suspension the longest for a knee-on-knee hit since the department of player safety took over supplemental discipline in 2011!
3) Save us the crap Cooke. Just take your sentence and go away. We don't need to hear about how you're a changed man, etc. You are a piece of shit, and are again responsible for hurting another player. NHLPA, where are you here?
