7:05 P.M. Injured NHL linesman ordered to pay legal costs to Flames , ex-defenceman Dennis Wideman …

As I read the first sentence of this article ( click on the link below to read ) I new right away why this Judge Willie deWit would toss it and send it back to the NHL …

In his statement of claim filed a year ago , Henderson said he was still not able to work because of his head and neck injuries , which included a concussion. In the second period of a game against Nashville in January 2016 , as Wideman skated to the bench after taking a hit from Predators’ Miikka Salomaki , he cross-checked Henderson , who had his back to the defenceman. Wideman was ultimately suspended for 10 games. In his March decision to stay the lawsuit , deWit agreed with the defendants’ position that Henderson must abide by the agreement between the NHL and its members — including officials — that says disputes like this fall under the umbrella of employment issues and must be dealt with through league arbitration …

They sign wavers and agreements for this sort of thing … Players … Coaches … Officials … STICKBOYS for shitsake !!!… If the actual court system was to get involved half the league would be in jail for assault ( fighting ) , assault with a weapon ( spearing , hooking , slashing , tripping , crosschecking ) … Plus they all take the risk of getting injured by pucks , collisions and catching a skate blade in a rut in the ice for that matter … What are they gonna do ? … Sue the guy that owns the arena ?… His BOSS ?!! … WHO PAYS HIM MILLIONS !!! … The zamboni driver ? … 

Wideman lost a good chunk of change in those ten games … But I would have sent a message to all and kicked him out of the league and nullified the remainder of his contract …

But that’s me …

6:46 P.M. OH OH ! … It’s Tom’s turn now !!!…

A woman who worked as a war correspondent for NBC News said Tom Brokaw groped her , twice tried to forcibly kiss her and made inappropriate overtures attempting to have an affair , according to two reports published Thursday. Linda Vester tells Variety and the Washington Post that the misbehaviour from the longtime news anchor at the network took place in NBC offices in Denver and New York in the 1990s , when she was in her 20s. Variety reports that Vester, now 52 , showed them journals from the time that corroborated the story…

Brokaw , who is 78 and has been married since 1962 , denied doing anything inappropriate …

If she was 29  back then ( coulda been younger ) that means it’s been 23 years .. And NOW she feels upset enough to cry about it ?!! … 

‘ I met with Linda Vester on two occasions , both at her request , 23 years ago because she wanted advice with respect to her career at NBC ‘  Brokaw said in a statement to the two outlets issued through NBC News … ‘ The meetings were brief , cordial and appropriate , and despite Linda’s allegations , I made no romantic overtures towards her at that time or any other ‘…

This just looks like another case of some tart suckin’ up to someone that’s in Brokaw’s position to further her career along … Didn’t bother her a bit and she was the likely instigator …

Another woman , who was not identified , made similar claims about Brokaw to the Post.Vester , who had reported from the Middle East and covered the Gulf War for NBC , was 28 when she was in Colorado in 1993 with Brokaw to cover Pope John Paul II’s visit to the U.S. …

This one was 25 years ago as well !!!…

‘ We were in the Denver bureau , and there was a conference room. I’m standing there , and Tom Brokaw enters through the door and grabs me from behind and proceeds to tickle me up and down my waist ‘ she told Variety. Vester said others were in the room , but no one ‘ acted like anything wrong was happening ‘ … He was the most powerful man at the network , and I was the most junior person ‘ she said. Vester said the following year in New York , Brokaw sent her suggestive computer messages in the office before later announcing on the phone that he was coming to her hotel room. Vester said she felt powerless to tell him not to come …

‘ He grabbed me behind my neck and tried to force me to kiss him ‘ she told Variety … ‘ I was shocked to feel the amount of force and his full strength on me ‘… She said Brokaw left when she broke away and made it clear she did not want any more. Vester left NBC in 1999 to work at Fox News , where she remained until 2006 …

Brokaw is the most recent of many media personalities to be accused of sexual misconduct in recent months , including his former colleague Matt Lauer , who left the Today show and the network after several women came forward with allegations. Lauer has admitted that he acted inappropriately , but denies any coercive or abusive behaviour …

Again … The incident supposedly took place in 1993 yet she stayed working around and with Tom for six more years … Couldn’t have been that traumatic then could it ?!!!… Little limelight time for ya ? … Hoping you’ll get some money from the rags that love to print this bullshit ?!!!…

I think all of you ‘ suddenly ashamed ‘ women should have a nice cuppa …
