Ah, got it. Ya, I agree as well. A fan crosses the line, he should get pummelled a la Domi when that Donkey came through the glass.

I love how players talk outta their Donkey without seeing the replay and make blindly stupid statements. The fan didn't become physical with the player at all.

Oh and looks like Rypien was also pretty physical with the refs. Definitely 15+ games now

Not trying to be nit-picky here, but Maholtra was the closest person to the incident. Standing what looks to be no more than 4 feet from both Rypien and the fan. I would suggest that he knew EXACTLY what went on.

Rypien crossed the line, because the fan didn't really do much wrong other than probably run his mouth. I will certainly agree with Malhotra though, that if a fan crosses that physical line into the playing field...he's fair game.

The video is pretty conclusive, though. All the fan did was applaud derisively, and Rypien grabbed him. What Malhotra was saying applies to a different situation.

Yeah. It's happened several time in football too. I've seen a clip or two of a fan getting absolutely destroyed by a linebacker in full pads. That's like being hit by a car :x

Point is that, no matter how close Malhotra was to the incident, the fan didn't cross any lines that would give Rypien cause to become physical. Since Rypien, not the fan, crossed the line, what Malhotra said is a great example of a player talking out of his Donkey.

Agreed. I was referring to the bolded part "without seeing the replay". He didn't have to, he was standing right there. While his comments (Malhotra's) don't apply because, like has been said (including me) that the fan didn't cross the line, I agree with what he's saying, even though it's accurate for this incident.

Malhotra was referring to how fans want to cross a line and become physical then we have to take care of ourselves. To this I say he's clearly trying to deflect attention away from Rypien and make it seem that the fan was invading his zone. I don't quite get if he was right there why he would say a thing about fans getting physical. That's why I mentioned that maybe he should look at the replay before saying stupid things like '...want to become physical with a player...' line

and yes, he was there. If he doesn't need to look at the replay, then he is just talking out of his Donkey to protect his teammate. either way, it came off very very dumb.

And then the fan got destroyed for wanting legal representation. Dum-Dums all around Laugh1

How did the fan get destroyed? I'm asking seriously. I obviously missed something.

well destroyed in terms of reputation. Just articles written on how idiotic the guy is if his intentions are to sue Rypien or the NHL.
