Matt Cooke has deserved his time spent as public enemy number one in many cities over the years.  It’s not even debatable.  He has done a few things that are going to keep him from ever receiving the hockey equivalent of saint hood, or the Lady Byng award.  The entire city of Ottawa has spent the last two months trying to prove that Cooke did something based entirely on Cooke’s history and not on what actually happened.   Today in Ottawa the fans, their owner & media are rallying around destroying an incorrectly accused Matt Cooke.  Ottawa is claiming that Cooke came down with his skate on their star defenseman Erik Karlsson’s ankle and sliced his Achilles tendon on purpose. Ottawa itself has a Red Scarf Union, which forgive me for not being familiar with Canada’s Ottawallian culture, but I’m just going to have to assume is similar to the Red Hat Society members that meet weekday afternoons at restaurants here in the states.  Anyway, this “Red Scarf Union” has made wanted posters

  • I hope they get even with Matt Cooke not only did he try to end Carlson season/career he ended Marc Savard career he should be out of the league.
