You Be The Judge: Is Duncan Keith a Jerk?
Listen to the following exchange between Chicago Blackhawks defenseman, Duncan Keith, and TEAM 1040 reporter, Karen Thomson: audio link to TEAM 1040
Karen Thomson: Well, there was something there it looked like maybe it was a penalty.
Duncan Keith: Oh no, I don’t think there was anything. I think he scored a nice goal. The ref was right there. That’s what the ref saw. We should get you as a ref maybe, eh? First female referee.
KT: Yeah, maybe. I can’t skate though.
DK: Can’t play probably either, right? But you’re thinking the game like you know it. Okay, see ya.
I know Keith was pissed off. I would be too if my team got beat in a big game and if I was on the ice and the Sedins burned me on a couple of goals.
For context, here’s the play in question:
Maybe it’s not enough to swing his stick like a baseball bat at Daniel, but what a jerk way to respond to a reporter.
Was Keith being sexist in his remarks? Was he being a dick? You be the judge.
