Did Randy Jones deserve a suspension?
Mon, October 29, 2007

Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Randy Jones has been suspended two games for his hit on Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron over the weekend.

NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell said Monday that he didn't believe Jones intended to injure Bergeron when he hammered him into the boards from behind, but that he did deliver a "hard check to a player who was in a vulnerable position."

Did Randy Jones deserve a suspension? Have your say in our forum.

yea sure you have been " away ". why should your thoughts matter but not mine ? Your a beer league player and nothing more. I played the game at a higher level that you can ever dream about. keep watching the nhl high lights on tsn and then telling us about hockey. your mentality says it all, you being an industrial league player hardly qualifies you to tell me about the game.

get a clue you fool.

Bill and Jimmy, sorry for not responding earlier as I have been away for a while. Why don't your read what I wrote, no one is condoning hitting from behind. We all get it. My intent it to let the league and refs call it. No one needs you know it all "Junior B" veterans whinning all day long. Bergeron is a professional hockey player and there are risks associated with that. Yes we try to mitigate them with rules however accidents happen. Grow up.

Jones should get another 20 - 25 games now that Bergerons injuries are fully known. Hitting from behind has to be cracked down on just like head shots are now.

I played 3 years of junior " B ". what level did you play ringette you punk ? you had to play ringette because you were cut from house leagues.

Last time you checked hitting from behind was legal ? Goofs like you that have only watched hockey on tv think they know it all when in fact you know nothing except what you see on tsn high lights. Are you related to wayne, because thats about your intelligellince level or lack there of you dummy.

Hey bill last time i checked what high leavel of hockey do you play. Idiots like you have no clue do they

The 2 games look like a sad joke now. Bergeron is hurt alot worse than alot of people thought. Jones should have been suspended until all the info was in on Bergerons injury and then added onto it. 20 - 25 games should have been more like it, hitting from behind is just as dangerous than hits to the head or even more dangerous.

hey pete, read this.

"He could have broken (Bergeron's) neck. He came within a fraction of an inch of breaking his neck. It's only because he's truly developed in that area that he didn't. He's wearing a hard collar. It's a travesty to portray Bergeron the way (the media has).

Chiarelli said Bergeron is going to be out at least a month and it's possible he may not play again this season.

Bergeron even had to be taken by wheelchair from his Boston apartment to get treatment at the TD Banknorth Garden on Thursday because he isn't able to walk very far.

But glad morons like you think its a good hockey hit.

I guess you didnt see the Jones hit from behind on Bergeron. Bergeron was knocked out cold, has a concussion and broken nose. If thats a good clean hit to you I cant imagine what a dirty hit must be then.
Jimmy, 2007-11-03 01:28:49

Why do idiots like Pete comment on other peoples thoughts. Wether you agree or not you dont have to be insulting.

Since when does the NHL play by Hockey Canada's rules ? Hitting from behind is always illegal Pete. Wake up and smell the coffee, you are wrong.


Scott, 2007-11-02 18:10:14

Pete you idiot you know nothing about hockey. If that hit happened to you you would be retired the next day.

Jones got a 2 game suspension because it was against the rules you moron. Bergeron could have had his neck broken on that play. I can see you have never played at a high level, you are a beer leaguer, nothing more.

Your caveman mentality says it all about you. Stick to watching hockey on tv, your stupidity is hilarious.
