Hey kids, just wanted to get with ya on a little piece of news before I head out to another showcase today.
You know, some people must be taking stupidity pills. I mean how absolutely stupid to you have to be to own a team and assault your own coach?!
The owner of the Campbell River Storm hockey team, Kevin Spooner of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League is facing criminal charges after an incident police are saying happened on December 12. Yep, nothing like a happy holidays punch in the mouth eh kids?! Ha Ha Ha
But it gets better. Not only did this idiot get physical with his own coach, he is charged with making threats to his wife, and making another threat to his wife saying he was gonna kill head coach Lee Stone! Yep, nothing like making your wife a witness against you dumbass!
Believe it or not it gets even better.
This isn’t the first time Kevin Spooner has had some violent tendencies. Anyone remember the guy making the news for threatening other team owners?
Yep, less than a year ago this guy was slapped with a restraining order to stay away from Dave and Marsha Webb, who own the Comox Valley Glacier Kings. Why would he do that? Just trying to get some compensation for a player he lost to the Kings I guess. Yep, threats always get you paid there Spooner.
Hmmmmmm, ya think the judge is just going to go easy on him this time? Nope, I don’t think so.
What does the rest of the team say about it? Meaning what did Spooner authorize as a statement;
“The Campbell River Storm are aware of the criminal allegations towards Kevin Spooner and while we cannot comment on an impending legal matter we would like to assure everyone that we hold the highest standard of conduct within our organization and have taken positive measures moving forward. We are looking forward to the end of the regular season and another successful playoff run and will not have any further comment regarding such matter. Yours in Hockey,
The Campbell River Storm”
Yep, nothing like releasing your own statement about yourself saying your organization holds the highest standards of conduct! What a joke.
