Have you forgiven Todd Bertuzzi?
Wed, August 27, 2008

Famous for sending one of the loudest messages in sports lore, Todd Bertuzzi delivered a much gentler one to Calgary Flames fans yesterday.

"Obviously I'm well aware I wasn't the most popular pickup in Calgary Flames history but at the same time, I think you have to give it a little bit of time and give me a chance," said the bruising winger at his introductory press availability alongside four other new Flames.

"Given the chance, I think I can prove myself and help this team out."

Have you forgiven Todd Bertuzzi for his on-ice attack of Steve Moore in 2004? Have your say in our forum.

Never. What Bertuzzi did was horrid..he shouldn't be allowed to play hockey anywhere.
Dianne, 2008-08-27 11:51:02

no, plain and simple no

Nope. At least not until he "pays the price", does the right thing and settles at least his part of his debt to Steve Moore. It wasn't an accident, it was deliberate, even if the result was unintended. Time to man up, Todd.

It great Todd Brttuzzi is a Flame. The Flames asre better team now. I hope he enjoys his time here. The team has a good chance to win the cup

Darryl Sutter said that he personally "ran a red light, thats the same as what Todd did". I disagree. INTENT is much different. Darryl wan't paying attention and was lucky no one got hurt. Todd intended to seriously hurt another human being with a steel shaft. He's human scum as far as I'm concerned. I've been a flames fan since 1980, I love the Flames. But I dont care what happens to them this year and I hope they fail miserably. I'll tune into them in fall 2009 (if Bertuzzi isn't there).

Todd Bertuzzi is a disgrace to the Game and sports in general. Forgive him? Never, still feel the NHL dropped the ball allowing him to ever play again, then to count the year of the strike as part of his suspension was an insult to the fans and Steve Moore.

Yes. Time to get over it.

Moore was an idiot anyways and he played pretty dirty.

No different than Ulf Samuelsson. Turtles when it suits him.

Nothing to forgive, it happened, it was dealt with... so it is time to let it go

Todd Bertuzzi, when at his best has and will be in the top 5 power forwards in the league, He's tough, strong, intelligent and can score, and his competitors know it.Once Bertuzzi has got all the crud flushed out of his toilet the Flames will have pulled off one of the better signings in this season.
