    Regardless of what you think of the guy it is a sad state when they don’t get his name right and miss that he’s a UFC vet. Could you imagine the cries of outrage that would happen if something like this was published:

    NHL fan, Pavell Burray…

    The comments section on that article are horrible too. While it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the left leaning tend to gravitate towards CBC the comments remind just how far the sport still has to go to gain public approval.
