win, lose & Drew: Like Father, Like Son

DREW0327.gif

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Patrick Roy's son has made news in recent days due to an on-ice goalie fight reminiscent of his fathers famous battle with Chris Osgood in 1998. Sooo...this image came to mind.

    Hey Drew how is the flash animation work going and when can we expect to see some of your work flash animated here?

    Hi, Matt, Thanks for asking. I'm having an absolute blast doing it and I can hardly wait to get it online. It's A Rockies cartoon about How they can win the West. It's called Mission Incredible. It's kind of an homage to Tex Avery, famous for his Droopy cartoons and Chuck Jones great Wile E. Coyote cartoons. I like that kind of humor. I was always more of a Looney Tunes fan than I was Disney. I'm learning a lot by watching Ren and Stimpy and Super Chicken because I find it funny that the chicken sits in a smoking jacket reading play chick magazine.

    So I'm trying to make it like those cartoons, mostly just funny without the hard statement I usually draw daily for print. The animation is totally reviving me. The process is slow. I think I'm on target for releasing it here on the site by mid-April. If you know anybody who uses Flash tell em to give a call at the news 303--954-5179. I could use little expertise.

    Nothing new to see here, folks. If Drew does an Avs-related cartoon (which is rare enough as it is), it's virtually guaranteed to be a negative one. Despite his recent nagging injury, Foote has been a monster for this team on defense, the team is 10-5 in their last 15 games, and they're right in the thick of the playoff race in spite of a ton of injuries. Yet not one positive cartoon from Drew since... well... since when?

    I'm actually more than a little surprised that the other goaltender has yet to file assault charges against Patrick's son.
    This situation was an absolute disgrace to the sport of hockey and just adds fuel to the fire for those people who say that hockey will never be more than a fringe sport in the States. It's simply amazing how the one sport that needs to draw positive attention to itself keeps shooting itself in the foot. Lockout, on ice assaults, Gary Bettman and company changing the rules like they would change dirty socks....
    Yes, this was not the NHL, but this incident still rang louder simply because of who was involved. Patrick Roy is a name that just wasn't going to go unnoticed. If the powers that be were intelligent, they would ban both Patrick Roy and his son from ever participating in organized hockey again. This type of activity (sending your son down the ice to beat up another player who wants no part of a donnybrook) has no place in hockey, and has no place in society. If Roy's boy had done this on say, a school campus, he'd be in jail right now.
    Roy may have had a nice NHL career, but he's got a long way to go to reach the status of a good human being. He has major anger issues. First a domestic problem with his wife, and now this incident involving his son.
    He's a horrible role model as a father. Parents simply should never be permitted to coach or manage their sons or daughters in organized activities. There's too much that can go wrong.

    As always....that's just my opinion on the matter. I did check the news this morning and this was still a free country, so...well...there it is....

    Cheers.

    Denver Fan, this isn't an Avs cartoon. Roy is a coach now, not a player, and has nothing to do with the Avs. On the flipside, this cartoon is 1) funny 2) more than a little true. It's not Drew's job to be play nice with the local sports man-boys. It's his job to draw big ears, honker noses, and to put into picture what we are all thinking in words. Bravo Drew.

    Well stated Jeremy...

    If we really wanted to, we could also overanalyze the toon by pointing out that when Roy's son was the age depicted, Roy would still have been with the Canadiens, not the Avalanche, but then....where's the fun in over-analyzing? (GRIN)

    What Jonathan Roy did was nothing short of a pre-meditated attack on an opposing player under the order/direction of his father/coach. The people who handed down the modest suspensions should actually be ashamed of themselves. Only when the suspensions are extreme will this type of behavior cease. When an attack of this nature is worth being banned for a year or longer will the message get through these players/coaches thick heads/egos.

    That is all....

    Cheers.

    No argument whatsoever against Drew drawing this cartoon. The problem is that he virtually NEVER draws anything good about the Avs, despite a ton of opportunities to do so in this season.
