A simpler time. Us and a few of you out there spent the entire 2007 summer talking to John Fedko and dropping Gary Roberts references on his show. We broke his will at many points, none better than around the 5:15 mark of this vid, posted six years ago:

English Soccer Player Gary Roberts Pulls Down Opponent’s Shorts In Front of Referee (Video)

Soccer Player Gets Pantsed In Front Of Ref

We are getting close to the EPL kickoff, so in the meantime you can enjoy a fairly hilarious prank which went down this weekend during an England League 2 game.

Moore: It's self destruction

Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore believes his side shot themselves in the foot as they suffered a 3-1 loss at the hands of Swindon. Two second-half goals from James Collins and Gary Roberts gave the visitors a comfortable lead in Tuesday night's League One clash at Prenton Park, but Donervon Daniels looked to have set up a nervy finale when he struck with 12 minutes remaining.

GARTH: Roberts Mea Culpa

Gary Roberts didn't back down from any opponent in his 21 seasons in the NHL. Roberts could kill you with his silky mitts, or, his gnarled up fists. He was a warriro on the ice and a gentleman off the ice. These days, he makes his home in suburban Toronto, where he runs a training facility for hockey players from every walk of life. He focuses on training and teaching good lifestyle...
