"Worth Fighting For"

As I’ve been working on this 20-25 page paper, I’ve been doing my usual scanning of the day’s headlines and came across this: “Todd Bertuzzi suing former coach Crawford.” I’ve tried to withhold from commenting, but I can’t any longer. Some things just need to be said.
Todd Bertuzzi is an imbecile. I’d like to use a stronger word, but I can’t think of one at the moment. Writing essays will do that to you. It’s like your entire vocabulary has been poured into the paper and you don’t have any words left to use.
Anyway, apparently Bertuzzi claims Crawford’s negligence attributed to Bertuzzi’s infamous sucker punch which dropped Steve Moore face-first to the ice. A pile-up ensued, which broke three vertebrae in Moore’s back and has kept him from playing hockey ever since; he will never play professionally again.
Now, I have no doubt Crawford said something about repaying Moore for his hit on Canucks captain Markus Nasland. He probably did. That’s the way things work in the NHL. Retaliation is its modus operandi. But at the end of the day, it was Bertuzzi who CHOSE to hit Moore. He was the one who CHOSE to retaliate. He CHOSE to perform his own vigilante justice. Bertuzzi’s a big boy, and to think that Crawford threatened him to do it or else or that Crawford’s inference that someone should take care of Moore affected all of Bertuzzi’s actions that game is just inane. At the time Bertuzzi’s star was climbing rapidly; he didn’t have to listen to Crawford. What a f*cking idiot.
This is yet another example of how no one takes responsibility for their own actions this day in age. It’s always someone else’s fault. PEOPLE NEED TO START TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS. Period.
N.B. – Why is Bertuzzi doing this? He’s in Anaheim and enjoying a bit of a resurgence in his career. I don’t understand the timing of it, either, especially with the playoffs coming. I sense some kind of personal vendetta. Maybe he and Crawford never got along in Vancouver, and this is one more way to stick it to him. Hmmm…
