Brett Hull is pretty crazy.
Scratched by Team USA, he inexplicably decided to lash out at fans, telling reporters “I don’t give a [hoot] about the fans anymore”. And he didn’t really say hoot.
When hockey resumes, he’ll be playing in a brand new city, for fans who don’t know Hull from a hole (or Hull) in the ground. It’s going to be hard to sell a star to fans when the star has explicitly expressed his contempt for the fans.
Wayne Gretzky and Team Canada may be looking great in terms of the World Cup, but Gretzky, an owner of Hull’s Phoenix Coyotes, is going to have an ugly mess to clean up when the World Cup is over.
