The thing that organizations like the Philadelphia Flyers, the NHL, or the You Can Play Draft do, is that stories They hope to go away and never do in the time frame they are counting on. They keep getting worse, and everyone’s inaction only prolongs this. The Flyers and their coach, John Tortorella, could have made this story much less so. Then he could have the NHL. YCP could have caused a real stink and turned it around. They all passed and we are still with the hangover. be it Tortorilla multiplyAnd Statement by Gary Batemanor this:

(Also, we have to mention the Everest-like task of appearing to be the biggest group on a team that includes Tony DiAngelo.)

The latter might have happened, but a different tone if the Flyers and their coach make it clear that their player has gone beyond what they value and what they stand for rather than just pushing them out as steps. The same goes for the league. Or maybe it would help if the organization you’re collaborating with stood for more than just hanging out with the league or making heterosexuals feel better.


you can play They’ve been the NHL’s partner to LGBTQ+ causes for a while now, and they’re the ones sponsoring Pride nights at the NHL arenas. However, every time there is a real controversy, something they can really put their feet on, someone shows up to just say They are disappointed. That’s nice, we all are, but then what? YCP never threatens to pull their name from the league or even ask for anything better.

Sure, education is part of the process, except offering that to Provorov isn’t going to do much when uses religion as a shield. And if the goal is a more welcoming environment for LBGTQ+ players and fans, do fans really feel better after some rehearsal work behind closed doors? It is still left unquestioned what effect Tortorella’s actions and words will have on LGTBQ+ fans of the Flyers. How many T-shirts did he inadvertently help sell?

This was the YCP’s general procedure for their entire partnership. when Ryan Getzlaf has been caught using homosexual libel on the ice, They were disappointed. the same time Andrew Shaw did the same. They even made Xu YCP ambassador Next year. To be fair to Shaw, he was determined to be someone who would prove his remorse and desire to help. But was it about helping the community or was it about rehabilitating Shaw’s image, from the YCP’s point of view? Xu didn’t need to punish the YCP for doing the work he wanted, to get around his mistake.

Hockey Diversity Alliance

Contrast that with the Hockey Diversity Alliance, which Refuse to participate with the NHL because it wouldn’t live up to what the HDA wanted it to do. YCP couldn’t even make a definitive statement about bathroom bills or attacks on marriage equality. For a more comprehensive analysis of all the shortcomings of YCP in the past, see This is from Victory Press good start.

YCP spend their nights dying their posters, and yet when a real challenge like this pops up, they just cheat on it. Where is the hard work of the league? Or the Flyers? Or does that put intimacy at risk?

Perhaps 10 years ago an organization could resort to common sense and decency. Perhaps there was a time when we could have laughed at Provorov’s shirts flying off the shelves. But this is a toxic era now, a confrontational one. It must be more than a disappointment.

Admittedly, this is very far fetched for Vince McMahon, who was revealed yesterday Settlement of a lawsuit Because he was accused of raping Rita Chatterton, the court who worked for the company in the 1980s. McMahon’s attorney was only too happy to tell everyone that this was not an admission of guilt, but to close the case.

“Mr. McMahon denies and has always denied raping Mrs. Chatterton. He settled the case only to avoid the cost of litigation,” said Jerry McDevitt, Mr. McMahon’s attorney.

This comes on the heels of the tens of millions McMahon shelled out before his forced retirement to other women It was alleged that he harassed, assaulted, or had inappropriate relations with him.

It’s frustrating, to put it simply, for McMahon to get away with signing a check that he won’t even notice, especially when he receives a much larger check when anyone buys WWE – AEW? Saudi Arabia? – do that. It’s a possible wonder The buyer would feel comfortable doing business with McMahon, and be seen to enrich him with this publicly. McMahon would always have taken the lion’s share of the profit, but it could have been different in terms of perception If it is still out of office. Maybe not much, however it’s something. The same goes for a media rights deal that might come first. And it would be interesting if McMahon tried to play rival rivals to keep himself in charge. which he might just do.

However, WWE is a proven profit maker, and with live TV, which is really rare these days. It’s not like any of these networks or streaming services will be able to resist the call. The world knows what McMahon is now, but does someone like him care when the bank balance is too big to put on screen?
