At a news conference Friday afternoon, Flames general manager Brad Treliving said Peters resigned.

But videos of lefties in blackface...
The kids at school were mean to me.
(let me know if you want on or off the ping list)
My coach hollered at me. I have never been the same.
It is these days.
The former Atlanta Flames
>>Cousins named the team the “Flames” after the fire resulting from the March to the Sea in the American Civil War by General William Tecumseh Sherman, in which Atlanta was nearly destroyed
Sherman should have been hung for war crimes against innocent and unarmed civilians.
Is there more to the story? Is this all?
Somebody said a racial epithet 10 years ago, and now must lose his job, over a verbal altercation from years ago?
Please tell me there’s more to the story of this coach being let go.
Political correctness is going to erode away our society in many ways. This gets carried too far.
Wear blackface some years back: Get elected Prime Minister
Use racist language some years back: Get fired as coach
PC has hit the NHL. Whats next? A lawsuit declaring there has to be more Gay, Puerto Rican midgets in the league? Look!, Boston has a fat guy singing the National anthem.
OH THE HUGE MANATEE!!
And there are people who think it’s good and proper to fire this guy for a ten-year-old offense.
Western civilization is spiraling downward into insanity.

so accusations without any proof are now grounds for losing one’s job? Awesome! Someone can accuse all democrats of using racial epithets at some point in their lives! See ya! Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out dems!”
Yes i know the story is about canada- but if accusations are now enough in canada- you can bet demos will make that same claim here too- likely already do in some places-

Really? I didn’t know that. Interesting celebration of history.
It’s interesting to learn where sports nicknames originated.
Some don’t make sense anymore, such as the Los Angeles Lakers. They originally were the Minneapolis Lakers, named because Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes. But there aren’t too many lakes in LA.......
Ditto for the Utah Jazz. The name made sense when they were the New Orleans Jazz, but doesn’t fit with Salt Lake City.
What, you mean Utah isn’t the first place you think of when you hear Jazz music?
>>>My coach hollered at me. I have never been the same.<<<
If that’s the case, my old military T.I. must owe me millions.
Actually, truth be told, for what I walked away with after basic training, I owe my drill instructor millions.
