Blackhawks Coach Joel Quenneville Fined $10K For Criticism Of Officials, Egregious Use Of Hyperbole


Perpetually-angry-looking-man Joel Qunneville was fined $10,000 for comments he made after Chicago’s Game 4 loss to Detroit regarding a roughing call against defensemen Matt Walker. Never shy to speak his mind, Quenneville had this to say:

“I think we witnessed probably the worst call in the history of sports there. Nothing play.”

The Nothing even comes close in comparison. Other bad calls in the history of sports are miles away from the mindfuck the referees pulled making that call. Don’t even try arguing the point because Quenneville will kick the ever-living shit out of you if you even dare try it.

Quenneville also has reportedly said that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the “worst movie in the history of cinema”, the Jon & Kate Plus Eight season premiere was the “dumbest thing on television ever”, the Harley-Smoot Tariff Act was “absolutely the most terrible piece of legislation ever introduced in the history of democracy” and that White Castle hamburgers “aren’t so bad – they’re actually pretty tasty.”

To be honest, I’m am somewhat confused by that last one – not that Sliders aren’t awesome, because they are, but I always pegged Quenneville as a Sonic guy. Huh.

Whatever he intends on doing to blow off steam regarding his fine, I have one piece of advice for Coach Q: give somebody your car keys – it’s never worth it, dude.
