Does Ramage deserve a prison sentence?
Thu, January 17, 2008

Former NHL player Rob Ramage was called an "exemplary citizen" Thursday, but an Ontario judge said he had to send a message of deterrence against drunk driving as he sent him to prison for four years for a crash that killed his friend, a former Chicago Blackhawks player.

Do you think Ramage got what he deserved? Have your say in our forum.

No Roger I have never once Drove drunk as you are implying,but by our implications you obviously have, I would'nt think by your condesending attitude you would be to pleased if it was your daughter or son that was murdered by a drunk driver, and as for Ramage going to serve 4 yr's well that will never happen he will probably be out in 1 yr, I have spent more time standing in line for my passport. And as for your last quote you hit it right on the button "HE GETS TO LIVE"

He deserved more in my opinion! He killed someone while DRIVING DRUNK...DRUNK! But then again so did Heatly and he got nothing so I'm not surprised that both of them got a slap on the wrist. I guess it pays to be a celebrity these days. It makes me sick that celebrities and sports people get off on anything these days. If that was you or me we would in there and got out for MANY years. So, no I don't think Ramage got what he deserved at all! And not being able to drive for 5yrs...like that's gonna hit him heart...ah no.

I would like to see a survey and time spent in prison for an average person who has committed the same crime. My bets are he/she gets a lot more time. Nice to have the money to hire the best liars, excuse me, lawyers. Anyway whatever they sentence him to will not take away the nightmares he must have every night, that in itself is punishment for life if he has a conscience at all.

I can look around any room and ask if anyone ever decide to drink and drive, everyone knows the answer to that, but most have been lucky and not killed anyone while behind the wheel. We all make mistakes in our life, but some come back to haunt you,do not throw rocks when you live in a glass house...enough said.

Jimmy, you american idiot. Go back and read my last. I said that he would get less than five because you said he should/will get more than 10. Once again you are wrong. Like I said before stick to your beer league and what it holds because you know sqwat about anything else. I can't wait to see your arrogant rebuttal to this. Who's LOL now?

Anyone who still drinks and drives, in spite of all the publicity about this issue, deserves the full extent of the law on his shoulders. If you do the crime, you do the time, regardless of your 'social' status!!!

He should be in prison for life. He gave his friend a life sentence along with his whole family, why should it be different for him?? Poor poor criminals give me a break.
Dwain, 2008-01-17 12:53:03

As per usual, it's not what you are or did, it's who you are as far as the laws go in Canada. 4 years?? For murder?? And he'll be out by this time next year. Simply pathetic, but not surprising in the least.

He got what he deserved. In my opinion it isn't enough. Anyone, whether having "celebrity" status or not, needs to pay the price for their actions.

There needs to be a change to our legal system so that everyone is treated equally.

He chose to drink and drive and that is just wrong wrong wrong.

And his sons comment about the effect serving jail time would have on his wife and family, ESCUSE ME!! what about the effects the death of Keith has had on his family. They have to live with a lost son, brother, etc. for the rest of their lives.

Ramage is certainly smart enough to have know that there would be consequences for his stupid decision, and now, he must live with the choice he made. No sympathy from me........

Hey OZZY, your post at10:08:52 on 2008-01-04.

RAMAGE MADE A CONCIOUS DECISION.

Yes he did, and he paid for it, I am sure you made the same concious decisions several times in your life, but you got lucky. So quit Bashing Mr. Ramage, he may not be locked away for life, but he has to LIVE WITH THIS THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
Roger, 2008-01-17 12:03:48

It would appear magnussons family support has helped ramage in his sentencing,,he probably would have gotten more with out it....Boys wilL be Boys,,two buddies havin a few brew!!!!!
