NHLPA and David Frost, v2.0

In a move that came as absolutely no surprise to anyone, the delusionally paranoid dirtbag David Frost resigned his NHL Agents' Association certification.

10 Quatloos sez that he was warned by his good buddy Bully Bob Goodenow that the "investigation" was going to go against him for PR purposes, and it was "suggested" that he resign his cert rather than have it taken away from him in what would wind up being a huge PR nightmare for the PA (who would then have to answer questions about why that abusive piece of shit was tolerated for so long in the face of a growing mountain of evidence that he's a scumbucket).

It's pretty sad how the NHLPA has served absolutely nobody except the agents over the last 20-odd years--well, except for Alan Eagleson's tenure, when it served nobody except Alan Eagleson (may he rot in the foulest corner of Detroit Hell for all eternity). Scum like David Frost are tolerated, and players are made to suffer mightily for it--all for the sake of the agents and their cut.

In other news, the sky is blue and the Pope is Catholic. Film at 11.

It's too bad that Trent Klatt's resistance movement has at its heart a misguided lingering loyalty to Bully Bob rather than a sincere desire to see the players take back their union from the agents and once again control their own destinies--I'd actually support him if the latter were indeed the case.
