Post by: Zanzibar Buck-Buck McFate on February 09, 2018, 04:40:15 PM
OTTAWA Former NHL enforcer Dave "Tiger" Williams is facing several charges, including sexual assault, after incidents on a Canadian Forces aircraft.

The Canadian Forces Provost Marshal's office says the alleged victim reported the incidents in December while Williams was taking part in a morale trip to Latvia.

Howie Meeker used to say that Tiger Williams was living proof that hair grows on cement.
looks like he has made a huge bonehead play here.

I always liked Tiger.  He used to be one of my favourite Maple Leafs in those days.

Too bad what happened happened.  He could learn from this, his reputation shredded, and never repeat it again.  Hope he does in the same way he conquered the bigger opponents with heart & willingness.

As a female, I'm naturally very disappointed to hear of this incident even though it was purported that Williams was drunk,  what with everything else that has been going on with sexual allegations, exposed by women against men of high standing.

The whole thing is so sad and tells miles about cultural, sexual, and attitudinal mores still prevailing in our society against the female gender.

I always found Tiger pretty arrogant... being drunk is no excuse for that behavior.. I've got no use for him myself....

I agree the drunk card is constantly played. If you drink, drink responsibly and don't use it as an excuse to hurt all around you.
