Is Fleury making a bad move?
Fri, August 8, 2008

Theo Fleury signed a contract with the Golden League outfit yesterday -- a deal Vipers president Peter Young assured will pay "well under four figures" -- and stuck around Foothills Stadium to take batting practice and shag ground balls with his teammates.

Despite making the transition from Rock'em Sock'em to a concrete coating business a couple years back, the former Stanley Cup champ and Olympic gold medallist is out to prove he hasn't lost the athletic prowess that made him an icon here.
Full story: Theo aims for field day

What else does he have to do with his time?

I wish Theo the best in this venture. It's neither good or bad for the sport, it is simply one person pushing himself to fulfill a dream. I hope he succeeds even though he is being watched and commented on much more than other players who also want to extent their personal bests. I'm also still appreciative of all his fiesty and talented play did for Calgary Flames hockey (no matter what problems occurred afterwards in his hockey carreer)

Good for Theo!If this will help him put his troubled past futher behind him and help him keep in shape then more power to him.Most people aren't aware that he had a very troubled youth and that things happened to him when he was young that led to his many problems as a pro hockey player.As the saying goes you shouldn't fault a troubled man until you've walked a mile in his shoes.Good Luck to you Theo!

Fleury made his BAD move years ago when the little phony cried his eyes out on TV because he had to leave the Flames since they didn't offer him "enough money."

He may have gotten more in Colorado and NY, but we all know where it went. I have never forgiven Gretzky for adding that little s*&t to the Olympic Team.

Who cares indeed.
