Drew cartoon: A-Rod at the All-Star game

DREW0708.gif

The A-Rod divorce proceedings will most likely not be pretty. The ugly details of a marriage gone bad will be spilled into the open for all to see and nobody will come out a winner.

This time of year becomes more of a challenge for a sports cartoonist. Football is still almost a month away, the PGA tour is unwatchable without Tiger Woods, baseball doesn't get really good until October and, really, without the Rockies in the hunt it loses it's pizazz all together, the Olympics won't start until August and, well, you get the idea.

    Don't worry Drew. With any luck, you'll be drawing a Joe Sakic retirement toon any day now.
    Thank God.

    If A-Rod hadn't left Seattle, none of this would be happening to him.

    I'm very happy to see that Todd Bertuzzi will be playing up to 6 games against the Avs this coming season. That is some of the best possible news.
    You people in Denver need to realize that Steve Moore got what was coming to him and Moore deserves to be where he is right now. You mess with the bull (Naslund) and you get the horns (Bertuzzi). Moore was a goon. Bertuzzi did what he did because Moore attacked Naslund. Some people just get what's coming to them. If Moore wasn't expecting to be hunted down for his cheap shot, then he's stupid.

    You're right, it was a cheap shot. That's why Moore got suspended right? Bertuzzi and the entire Vancouver Canucks organization are a bunch of clowns who don't know how to take a good hit. With any luck Scott Parker will make Bertuzzi a permanent fixture in the right wing boards this year.

    Scott Parker?

    Who?

    Oh yeah. The guy who plays about 38 seconds per game and about 6 games per season out of an 82-game schedule and moves like he's got cinderblocks for skates.

    Yeah. That guy. Washed up and completely useless.

    As far as the Bertuzzi/Moore thing goes, everyone needs to clearly remember who went headhunting first. Moore was the instigator by trying to take Naslund's head off on an illegal hit. It doesn't matter if Moore was penalized, suspended, or anything else. What Moore did deserved payback. Now, everyone can debate to what extent payback was deserved, but there is no question at all that it WAS deserved. Dave Semenko used to wipe the ice with anyone who looked cross at Wayne Gretzky. That was the code. To a lot of players it still applies, especially when the referees decide that it's beneath them to police the game. That's when players and coaches decide to police the game. Again, it's the code. Moore decided that the could ignore the code and it cost him his career. Life sucks. Too bad for Moore, but if he doesn't cheap shot Naslund, he's possibly still playing hockey. Steve Moore made a choice. He chose poorly.

    "there is no question at all that it WAS deserved"
    Are you serious? How completely deranged are you to think that anyone deserved what Moore got. There is a huge difference between the cheap shots you see in almost every NHL game and what Moore got. Bertuzzi should still be suspended from the game as far as I am concerned. (not to mention Crawford)
    Anyone who would argue that what Bertuzzi did was part of some code is completely stupid. There is a code and Moore may have deserved a shot, but what Bertuzzi did was not part of any code. It was beyond dirty or cheap and Bertuzzi's suspension should have been equal to the amount of time that Moore was out of the game due to Bertuzzi's actions.

    Drew-
    If your buddies in the rest of the sports pages can find something to write about I am sure that you can find something funny..... Tulo at bat, the highest paid olympic basketball team in the world who can't play, the broncos wonderful defense, drugs in swimming, drugs in the Tour de France, The williams sisters final..... or you can use it as a tool to get sports fans in denver into another team like the outlaws or the Crush, or the rapids. I get the News for two reasons, one the comics and two the Drew.

    Thank you for your fun and wit. Keep up the good work!!!

    I've been reading this thread, and I think one major important point is missing.
    Steve Moore's neck injury was not inflicted by Bertuzzi's punch or from Moore hitting the ice.
    The neck injury occured from having about 8 other large hockey players piling on top of Moore while he was knocked out.
    And Michael - Bertuzzi was suspended from the NHL already. He served time and was hit heavily in the wallet.
    It's too bad for Moore, but nothing Bertuzzi did was crimminal. The NHL handled the situation as they have handled every situation from Marty McSorley to Chris Simon to Dale Hunter. This was no different.
    As other posters have stated, Steve Moore is far from innocent. The way he went after Naslund, he could have ended Naslund's career just as easily as his was ended. It's just bad luck on Moore's part that his own teammates along with a handful of Canuck players couldn't have found a better place to pile on top of each other.

    For those who think that Moore deserved payback, you're right, he did, and he got it, Matt Cooke fought him early in the game and Steve Moore kicked his ass. That was the Canucks chance to get him back and they didn't get it. So they had to cheap shot him from behind when they were down in an 8-2 game. How can a rational human being argue that it was ok what Bertuzzi did? All you little 15 year olds need to remove your internet muscles.

    Once again Drew, your cartoon has sparked a conversation between three people that have noting to do all day but complain about each other and trying hard to prove that they know more about sports than the others. What a shame that a cartoon about A-Rod and his life gets these guys stuck on a hit that happened what two years ago and has even been litigated in the court system that counts time in years and decades. I hope that we all can get over ourselves and comment on the cartoon and the situation in the cartoon not aome other unrelated issue.

    All I can say is it should have been Joe Sakic that Bertuzzi attacked. That would have been much better revenge. You attack out star player, we attack yours. Fair is fair.

    Actually, the Rockies ARE still in the hunt...the D'backs are falling back and the Rocks are in about the same position as they were last year! As far as the PGA without Tiger, it's more interesting to watch the leaders than Tiger highlights when he's in 20th place! The PGA will be more interesting to me for the rest of the year!!!
