You man up fight who the other team says you fight, take your punishment and move on.....Moore didn't do that. Now, having said that, i will say again, I am not condoneing what Bertuzzi did, cause it was wrong.
No, he did pay his dues. He manned up and fought like a man. Cooke challenege him, he accepted it's over. Dont' forget when he did hit Naslund there was a mayley after.
I seirously can't believe people are still saying it's Moore's fault. He honoured the code of hockey by fighting. Getting suckered by a bully isn't part of the code. Why should an average sized player have to fight a 6"3'' 250 pounder? Fighting a below average fighter, of course, Moore isnt' a fighter either. I can't believe in the talk shows around Vancouver, whenever this topic is brought up people still defend Bertuzzi and make Moore the bad guy. Like you.
By the way, Naslund put himself in a volnuarble position, he should keep his head up. You woulda hit him too don't even try to deny it.
I'm a canucks fan by the way.
