Quote from: herman on July 19, 2022, 09:29:22 AMthe fact that they organized a business operation around covering it up instead of actively educating and setting appropriate standards of consequences is an indictment against hockey culture as a whole. They knew it was bad, and they put in extra work to hide it.
Quote from: Nik on July 19, 2022, 06:41:11 PMI feel like that's a little misplaced. This is an indictment against "hockey culture" in large part because Hockey Canada has a lot to do with establishing hockey culture rather than the other way around. It's not an issue specific to them but I also wouldn't use this organization, which has for a long time seemed insular, self-interested and reactionary and use it to cast aspersions on the wider sport(even if those criticisms may be valid in places). There's time enough to look at the culture as a whole but right now I think the focus should be on these specific bad actors and the way we've let them run the sport.
Quote from: Peter D. on July 20, 2022, 01:38:11 PMSo realistically what can we expect to be done with the players who were involved? Would a suspension from their NHL team be something that we see happen?
Quote from: herman on July 20, 2022, 08:51:16 AMFair enough. I was referring to the OHL and other junior/minor hockey level instances of abuse, which are indeed HC influenced. These things aren't just switches that flip one day but an accumulation of things implicitly condoned/encouraged within the culture.
